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.

We can help you with:

  • Acquisitions
  • Disposals
  • Planning permission requirements
  • Management company establishment/set up

Chris Powell at Rotheras was recommended to us by a trusted associate within the Transport Industry; without doubt we wouldn’t have had the excellent outcome we did without his and his team’s involvement. The level of professionalism, expert advice and assistance was faultless; we felt reassured and well informed throughout the whole process. It was a pleasure to do business with him and would highly recommend his services!

The team at Rotheras, and Mr Powell in particular, have provided us with an outstanding service. We are extremely grateful for the help and support they gave us in dealing with issues relating to our transport operations and our goods vehicle operators licence. Mr Powell was professional, knowledgable, efficient and effective. He quickly understood our business and the problem we had. He responded with sensible advice and acted quickly on our behalf to resolve the matter. I cannot thank him enough for his help and I would recommend Mr Powell, and the Rotheras team, without hesitation. I am extremely grateful for the help they gave us.

I would highly recommend James Briggs, solicitor at Rotheras. He has been extremely helpful, patient and thorough whilst helping me with affairs following the death of my husband. Even during lockdown (covid) he maintained communication and kept me informed of what was happening. He successfully achieved the outcome I needed and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

We are in the middle of launching our own packaging agency and contacted Rotheras for some professional legal advice with regards to contracts. After an initial call with Billy, he made it clear what we needed and asked plenty of questions to understand what it was we needed. He was very responsive to our questions, whether it be over the phone or via emails and made the process really simple. We had little experience in this area so it was fantastic to work with Billy, who explained everything concisely. We were also really pleased with the quick turnaround and great value offered. Would thoroughly recommend working with Rotheras.

Billy kept us informed every step of the way and showed great professionalism. We would recommend his services to any start-up business who is in need of legal advice and guidance with commercial contracts.
