Land Acquisition and Plot Sales

Getting involved in developing land can bring a mix of both opportunities and challenges.

At Rotheras we have a wealth of experience in acquiring land for development and plot sales and can assist with all phases of your development.

Land Acquisitions

When acquiring land for potential development there is also a lot to take into consideration.

Planning permission, highways agreements, environmental investigations, agreements for utilities, and the commercial terms of the deal are all factors that need to be taken into account.

At Rotheras our commercial property team have a wealth of experience in advising on land acquisitions and will work with you to ensure the land can be developed on time and within budget, giving you the maximum return on investment.

Plot sales

Plot sales are becoming more complex, with each plot now likely to be different compared to the standardised housing of previous years.

We act for house builders and developers to consider the following factors relating to plot sales including access to the site and rights of way, roads, utilities and services, planning consent and boundaries. We can help you with drafting and preparing residential plot sale agreements, leases and transfers.

Why instruct Rotheras for Land Acquisitions and Plot Sales?

We advise both residential and commercial property developers.

We pride ourselves on our expertise and attention to detail, whilst ensuring your matter is conducted in a timely manner.

We act for a wide variety of developers and clients within the construction industry.

We can advise property developers on sites of varying sizes including single developments, large residential housing estates and mixed-use developments.

Our experience means we can spot and act on any issues with your land acquisition early to avoid delays later down the line prior to selling your plots.

We can draw on the skills of colleagues in our litigation and company commercial teams.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.
