Land Development

At Burley Geach we have particular expertise in advising on the sale or acquisition of development sites and understand the sensitivities in balancing competing interests. Our client base ranges from small independent developers to much larger enterprises.

Our commercial property experts can provide advice in connection with all land development legal issues, including;

  • Consideration of site viability
  • Promotion agreements
  • Option agreements
  • Conditional contracts
  • Overage arrangements
  • Development agreements and joint venture arrangements
  • Section 106 planning obligations
  • Collateral warranties
  • Plot sales

Our advisers appreciate that from a landowner’s point of view it is vital to make the most of any development opportunity. We also understand that from a developer’s point of view the site has to be commercially viable.

The act of balancing interests to ensure that both parties make a fair profit from the development opportunity starts with a considered Heads of Terms document and we are happy to discuss this with you (and/or your agent) at the earliest opportunity.

At Burley Geach we pride ourselves with our ability to draft and settle all of the necessary and often entirely bespoke legal documentation to record the agreed terms in a clear and timely fashion.

We have a wealth of experience obtained from years of advising on the acquisition, finance and development of often complex sites in and around London and the South East. Please contact our Petersfield Office to discuss your requirements.
