The Landowner Development unit specialises in advising private, commercial and institutional landowners on disposals of land for development.
We have a wealth of experience in dealing with major developers and handling complex transactions such as:
- competitive tenders
- conditional contracts
- promotion agreements.
Accordingly, we have expertise in all aspects of maximising value from land development from the landowner's point of view and, in particular, with issues of access, ransom and equalisation. We are often called upon to act as the honest broker for two or more neighbouring landowners in their dealings with one or more developers.
We also regularly advise on a host of other landowner issues including:
- alternative energy
- environmental projects
- farm diversification schemes
- landfill operations
- mineral leases.
We work in tandem with our highly-regarded team of tax and trust lawyers in advising landowners on mitigating tax liabilities on the disposal of land for development. Similarly, our renowned agricultural expertise means we are well versed in protecting entitlements and the benefits received from agri-environmental schemes, in addition to securing vacant possession of development land as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible.
