The housing industry is changing.
From the stamp duty holiday to new regulations and new methods of construction (MMC), the rapid changes facing housebuilders and developers, together with the impacts of COVID-19 and Brexit, have presented the industry with both risks and opportunities.
Whilst we are yet to see the effects of the current economic crisis on the UKs Housing Crisis and what the long-term effects for housebuilders will be, there is no doubt that now more than ever, clear and accurate legal advice is needed. We will work with you and your business to understand your needs and work with you to capitalise on these opportunities, whilst mitigating risks.
We support both public and private sectors, including landowners, developers, public authorities, housing associations investors and banks, and draw expertise from our colleagues in construction, real estate, planning and corporate to ensure we’re giving you clear, accurate advice at all times. We also have a particular expertise in acting for housebuilders and act for 6 of the 10 largest house builders in the UK as well as for a range of smaller specialist operators
We can support you on any regeneration and housebuilding project. These typically include:
- appropriate funding for the acquisition of land or opportunity
- an appropriate structure to reduce tax through joint ventures and other strategic alliances.
- the master planning and planning processes
- procurement of construction and consultancy engagements.
We have established a niche reputation for project work for developers in areas of urban renewal, regeneration and mixed-use development and has advised on some of the largest regeneration schemes in the country. We have considerable experience in dealing with the legal issues that can arise with such schemes and have a dedicated development sales team to help with marketing projects in the UK and overseas.
