  • Overview

    The main course of disagreement between landlords and developers is in relation to the uplift in price to be paid by a developer to acquire the site once, for example, planning permission has been obtained.

    We advise both landowners and developers and on one recent dispute, where we advised a landowner, the dispute concerned the items should be taken into account when assessing the net sale proceeds for the purposes of calculating the sum due to the landowner. 

    The matter was referred to an Arbitrator and we guided our client through the process, and our client secured a sum significantly higher than what had been offered by the developer. 

    Mark Steggles, the lead Partner on the matter, comments: “whilst we take all appropriate steps to try to avoid disputes being referred to Court or arbitration, if such action is unavoidable, we have sufficient expertise and experience to guide our clients through a difficult and stressful process.  In this case, it resulted in a positive outcome for our client”.
