A White Elephant?
Development work needs the utmost due diligence with careful consideration to all the factors that can potentially turn a successful development into a ‘white elephant’. Only when we have considered and eliminated all obvious risks (or worked out a strategy for dealing with manageable risks) should a developer proceed.
Development problems and solutions
Whilst acting for developers and funders we have come across most of the associated pitfalls including:
Absence of Rights of way or other necessary rights
Unreasonable or unrealistic planning conditions/planning agreements
Badly drafted overage agreements
With increased pressure on the availability of land comes increased opposition to development. We also have considerable experience of advising clients on problems affecting developers including:
Enforcement of restrictive covenants
Listing of Assets of Community Value
Town and Village Greens
Rights of way
Whatever the difficulty might be, you do not want problems you need solutions. With our expertise we can often find solutions to many of these problems.
