We acted for a client on the acquisition of land forming part of a much larger site. The wider site had many issues to deal with including contamination, ecology and archaeology. The seller had also entered into several planning agreements, including section 104 and section 36 agreements for the infrastructure at the site, which had to be considered as part of the transaction.
Following the purchase of the site, we subsequently dealt with the financing of the land to fund the development and also acted on the ongoing plot sales following construction. Dealing with this matter covered every aspect of a development transaction and was both challenging and rewarding. It provided us with a valuable and close working relationship with our client where we were able to understand its working practices and business methods to work effectively on future projects.
