Property Development


At bpl we have extensive experience in dealing with property development. Ranging from a single building plot to medium and large sized residential and commerical development sites.

We aim to give our clients the best service of our abilty and feel we are able to achieve this with our experience. We cover a range of legal matters with regards to property development.

  • Dealing with Restrictive Covenants
  • Optional Agreements and Conditional Contracts
  • Estate Disposal Strategy and Implementation
  • Plot Sales and Lettings
  • Mixed-use developments
  • Commonhold Implementation
  • Site Assembly

Site Aquisition

Our experience of development projects both large and small enables us to identify and put in place appropriate and effective contractual and financial structures. This can have ongoing benefits both for developer and buyer. We are experienced in working within complicated land owning structures, including land exchanges. Reflecting current concerns, many of our clients' developments provide housing solutions in challenging brownfield locations, leading to an enhancement of the local environment as well as being ecologically sound.

We foster working partnership with our clients with the emphasis on being approachable to them and the third parties we and they work with: we pride ourselves on providing pro-active advice and offering answers rather than creating legal obstacles. We recognise the need for developers to work within both time and financial constraints and help them, from the initial outline planning stage to completion to ensure that these requirements are fully addressed and met.

Property Ownership and Management

We are experts in legal matters regarding individual and portfolio property aquisitions, disposals for property investors and owner-occupiers. We also have specialist experience in providing property support for company share transactions.

Landlord and Tenant

At bpl we provide legal services for both landlord or tenant. We can undertake work for the following areas:

  • The granting of leases
  • Advising on and dealing with assignments and underlettings
  • Advising on rent review and service charge issues
  • Advising on lease renewals and determinations
  • Advising tenant end users of all types of business space
  • Letting of commercial units for various workshops on long and short term leases

Land and New Homes

Our dedicated new homes team offers a highly focused and specialist service to the housebuilding industry and new home buyers. Our clients operate in a dynamic and demanding industry which has its own specific needs. By combining our experience with efficient systems and making full use of technology, our aim is to provide a first class service without reinventing the wheel. This entails intensive pre-approval of a housebuilder's legal sales package with an eye to its application to the whole of the development - all unit types, all layout configurations and all ongoing communal maintenance/management company features. This work is carried out at the earliest possible stage working closely with the housebuilders' own legal team without cost to anyone. We regard this as an investment in our partnership with the housebuilder enabling us to be strongly placed to represent buyers of individual homes on that site.

We understand the importance of communication with all parties and are extremely pro-active in this area keeping clients and third parties up to date with progress reports.
