Property development is complex by its very nature, with many legal issues that must be considered throughout the entire project cycle. It is therefore essential to have the right level of legal support from the outset, to ensure that all details of the project are firmly in order and that your obligations are fully met.

We work with developers on projects of all sizes, from single plots to multi-million-pound ventures. We will work in partnership with you to gain a thorough understanding of your objectives and ensure that the entire project cycle runs smoothly, looking after your commercial interests throughout the process.

As development continues at an unprecedented level, especially within London, the changing landscape will often have an impact on neighbouring properties. If the neighbouring owners are unable to accept these changes, for example, if there is a breach of the right of light, this may give rise to a property development dispute.

If a project is experiencing difficulties, it is essential to obtain legal advice at the earliest opportunity, in order to limit any damage arising from this situation and ensure the protection of your interests and securities to the greatest possible degree.

Ackroyd Legal has a property development team comprising specialist solicitors who offer a range of expertise and the technical know-how required to deliver effective solutions to commercial property developers, asset managers and corporate occupiers on all types of development projects.

At any time and if necessary, we can draw on the skills and experience of our experts in litigation, acquisitions, affordable housing sales, plot sales, business renewals, corporate tax, development finance and planning.

We work with property professionals across the breadth of residential, commercial, development, planning, construction and property disputes. At Ackroyd Legal, we have an approachable team of lawyers who specialise in law serving property developers and investors.

We are experienced in the development process, from planning and construction through to disposal. We can form a key role in your development team or be at arm’s length as you wish. It is our aim to see you make the best of an opportunity and to manage the development risk wisely.
