Clifton Ingram have many years’ experience acting for property developers both large and small. Whether you are planning to purchase a plot for a single dwelling or develop a major housing, office or retail project, we can advise you on all aspects and at all stages of the transaction.

We understand the pressures and constraints that those involved in property developments can often be under, so we help clients to meet their objectives and to meet them on time.

Whether you are a landowner or a developer, we can help with advice on development agreements, including Option agreements and clawback, to ensure that you minimise costs to the greatest possible extent, while managing risk and ensuring your position is protected. We also advise funders and occupiers around specific areas such as planning, rights of light and tenancy issues.

Due to the dynamism and cohesive structure between teams and sector-experts at Clifton Ingram, we are able to draw on collective experience across the firm in our Commercial and Residential Property, Company and Commercial and Dispute Resolution departments to address a wide range of property development issues and achieve the best possible outcome in the most cost-effective manner. We can assist with:

  • Sale or purchase of land for residential or commercial development;
  • Local Authority Planning agreements;
  • Promotion and Development agreements;
  • Restrictive covenants and overage provisions;
  • Conditional Contracts and Option agreements;
  • Joint Ventures;
  • Building Leases;
  • Disposals and Plot Sales;
  • Liaising with statutory undertakers and service providers; and
  • Landlord and tenant law.

We will work with you to ensure that every stage of your property development project runs as smoothly as possible – from drafting the requisite agreements, to securing funding, through the construction to the finished thing; we are with you every step of the way.

In addition, we have specialist knowledge of relevant tax provisions and employment law and can help ensure you are satisfying your liabilities. For instance, there is a special tax regime for contractors and self-employed sub-contractors in the construction industry of which we are able to advise.  Employees in the construction industry should be dealt with under the normal PAYE system and we can ensure that you are fully compliant.
