Development

At Primas, your project is as important to us as it is to you.

Any form of development project is made up of many complex parts and will be of great importance to you. Our highly experienced specialist development team will successfully manage any transaction to promote your interests and achieve your objectives.

We take the time to get to know our clients' businesses and use this knowledge to deliver outcome-focussed legal advice.

We know that selling land for development can be a daunting process for anyone. This is why we offer a unique consultancy service for landowners who may be considering a future disposal or development project. Working with our trusted planning contacts we can advise on the viability of a site for a potential scheme and guide you to a successful outcome.

Our development representations include:
  • Negotiating exclusivity agreements
  • Full due diligence and site acquisition (including site visits where possible)
  • Negotiating complex documents, including option agreements (fixed price and OMV), conditional (planning linked) contracts catering for net developable acreage, abnormal deductions and phased funding
  • Negotiating joint venture agreements
  • Negotiating planning promotion agreements
  • Negotiating deeds of variation
  • Site assembly, setup, disposals and plot sales (residential, commercial and mixed-use schemes)
  • S.106 planning obligation agreements and other adoption agreements
  • The purchase and sale of ground rent portfolios
  • Specialist management company formation
  • The creation of special purchase vehicles to manage risk and general advice on corporate structure
