Residential Land Development
From the developer's perspective, we have experienced lawyers within the team who can advise on all aspects of this work, including site assembly, option agreements, planning obligation agreements, finance agreements and construction warranties.
"We have used a number of conveyancing solicitors over the years but have never experienced such an excellent service until we came to TWM. As property developers we are constantly in need of regular updates, accurate information and more importantly immediate access to your team of professionals as our business relies on being able act swiftly to secure the best developments. This includes the senior partners, who in other practices do not seem to regard their clients as worthy of their time! All of these features seem to be a speciality of TWM and we do not know how we coped before we used them as our conveyancers. We have had the good fortune to have used a number of departments in TWM all of which have employed the same high standards."

A significant part of our development work involves advising the firm’s private clients on their negotiations with developers for the sale their homes, or part of their garden for potential development. This may involve an option agreement or a conditional sale contract, and the deal will commonly include overage or clawback provisions. Invariably, the agreement will cater for Section 106 Agreements to secure infrastructure contributions or other planning obligations, and we are able to assist in completion of these as the project proceeds.
We will advise on the process for planning applications, including making objections and both planning appeals and judicial review applications to the High Court, whether that be to challenge a planning permission that has been granted, or to challenge a refusal or dismissal of an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.
