Expert advice for landowners looking to develop land

Sometimes there will be an opportunity or a need to engage in one-off land projects for the purposes of raising income or capital. We recognize that these kinds of projects can be exceptional events for landowners, bringing with them unfamiliar risks and stewardship concerns. We have the expertise to deal with transactions involving the disposal of land for development, ranging from the sale of land for residential development (including sales with deferred or contingent payments) through to complex arrangements for selling minerals extraction rights.

Our team is used to working together on land development, and minerals, transactions and is also used to working with landowners' other professional advisors on complex land development projects.
