Property Development

Nicholsons have a particular specialism in acting for both residential and commercial property developers. Our clients range from major local house builders and commercial business park developers to sole-traders renovating individual buildings.

Our approach is flexible and pragmatic working closely with our clients who always have direct contact with the senior person responsible for their site. We know that legal aspects of a development deal do not sit in a vacuum and must be balanced effectively with commercial requirements.

We are experienced in using the full range of development tools including options, conditional contracts, overage, pre-let agreements, equalisation, and joint venture agreements. We have access to expertise in planning and construction matters and our plot disposal practitioners have a track record of many hundreds of successful sales.

Our development practice is complimented by our expertise in Landlord & Tenant law and Property Investment Management when advising clients on their commercial portfolios.
