Here at Michael Lewin Solicitors, we understand that Property Development comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes, from an extension to an existing commercial building to the assembly and acquisition of a brownfield site and the construction of a new development from scratch, whether residential or commercial.
- Dedicated and highly skilled Commercial Property team
- Our clients success is key
- Free initial assessment
- Full range of property services offered
- Highly professional service
We have experience acting for national and regional commercial developers on a wide range of industrial, retail, leisure, office and mixed use development projects.
We cover all aspects of commercial property development, handling legal requirements from start to finish for any project. We are happy to act on one-off short term projects or work on long-term projects that are complex by nature, and will require continuity in the professional team.
We handle everything from initial land options and site acquisitions to overage obligations, pre-lettings and lettings to occupiers, development and forward funding agreements or other development financing, support of grant applications, negotiation of planning and other infrastructure agreements, and disposal and exit agreements.
We work closely with each client and their other key advisors throughout the lifecycle of a project, invariably being seen as an integral part of their business. Commercial developer clients can rely on us to provide strategic guidance, rather than simply documentation of transactions, and can ask us to attend board-level and other steering meetings.
At any stage of a project, we’re able to co-ordinate and bring in other specialist legal teams, as required – especially planning, construction, banking and tax experts, but also corporate, commercial and even employment lawyers – to provide a complete legal solution at all times.
In addition, for regular clients, we can offer e-mail up-dates on market trends, changes in legislation and proposed Government policy.
