Development Property

The Commercial Property team has significant experience in acting for both landowners and developers in the proposed development of land. This is a highly complex area where the team can provide tailored advice on different ways to structure the deal and negotiate the terms of conditional contracts, options, and clawback/overage to protect your interests.

The team have acted for a number of developers and landowners in relation to the acquisition and disposal of sites under options or conditional contracts and working with them through the planning process. They work closely with a number of local planners and can prepare section 106 agreements to support a planning application.



The Commercial Property team have over 20 years of experience in acting for Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) and Small Self-Administered Schemes (SSAS’s) in acquiring, managing, and disposing of properties. We are also able to act in the in-specie transfer of properties from one provider to another.

This is a highly specialised area, and our experience enables us to have a full understanding of the rules and regulations involved when a property is owned by a SIPP or a SSAS. We are able to apply this knowledge at an early stage and, where appropriate, offer advice as to how a transaction can be restructured to enable the property to be acquired by the SIPP or SSAS whilst remaining compliant with the regulations.

Agricultural Property

Our Agricultural Team deals with all aspects of agricultural work, and we have particular expertise in dealing with the sale and acquisition of farms and agricultural property as well as providing advice in relation to the development of rural property for a wide variety of differing uses including residential use, commercial use and for energy and utility schemes. 

We regularly act for farmers, land owners and investors in order to deal with the sale of agricultural land by way of conditional contracts, option agreements and promotion agreements in order to facilitate large scale commercial and residential development and to maximise asset value.

We undertake all other aspects of agricultural management work including providing advice on farm business tenancies, 1986 Agricultural Holdings Act Tenancies, estate planning as well as providing advice on funding and refinancing.
