Site Acquisition and Development Scheme Solicitors Leeds  

The specialist team of site acquisition solicitors at Avery Walters assist you from the very early stages of commercial property development, advising upon and negotiating for you the terms of a sale and providing advice in relation to company structure and the legal aspects of funding your commercial property development. We advise in relation to the legal issues of: 
The acquisition or disposal of sites 
Requirements for obtaining planning permission 
The set up of a management company 
Environmental implications that may arise with your development 
The funding of a commercial development transaction 
Plot sales 
 
Acquisition of a site 
 
There are various legal issues that surround the acquisition of a development site, which include the eventual disposal of the freehold. It is important that legal advice is sought to ensure your transaction runs smoothly. Avery Walters’ Site acquisition and development scheme solicitors have experience in obtaining lands that are to be used for single developments, large commercial estates and mixed-use developments that incorporate both commercial and residential properties. 
 
Our property development lawyers team are experienced in advising property developers about acquiring land and subsequently preparing plots for sale. We advise on all related matters, including: 
Boundary issues 
Rights of access 
Restrictive covenants 
Easements 
 
Plot sales 
 
We understand how important plot sales are to property developers, which is why we work closely with you to ensure that any issues that arise are dealt with efficiently. Our Site acquisition and development scheme solicitors specialise in preparing the necessary legal documents for residential plot sale agreements, leases and transfers. 
 
Through working closely with you, we are able to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and be on hand to offer practical advice as and when you need it. Our team will also provide the assistance you need to maximise cash flow and plot sales within tight timescales. 
 
Planning 
 
A key consideration for any commercial property land acquisition is planning. If the site you have acquired does not already benefit from suitable planning permission, you will need some certainty that it can be lawfully developed upon. Planning permission can be achieved by one of 2 methods: 
Option agreement. You are given the right, but no obligation, to purchase the site once planning permission has been obtained. 
Conditional contract. You commit to purchasing the site once planning permission has been obtained. 
 
Whichever option you decide, we have extensive experience in negotiating these documents and securing the land for a future deal.

Our commercial property solicitors can assist you from site acquisition right through to the sale of the last plot on the development. We have experience in advising many developers including: 
Property investors 
Business owners 
Local authorities 
Housing associations 
Developers 
Farmers
