Specialist New Build Estates Department

At Chattertons we recognise the national house shortage and we have therefore worked hard to provide a dedicated team who specifically act for and work with property developers to meet the on going demand for new houses. Our team is based at our Newark Office and provide a wealth of experience from acquisitions of land through to site set up and sale of the outgoing plots.

Whether you are a property developer, landowner selling a development, or a purchaser buying a new build home we can provide the legal advice to meet your requirements.

Our service broadly covers:

  • Acquisition of land
  • Funding agreements
  • Road Agreements
  • Sewer Agreements
  • Section 106 Agreements
  • Deed of Grants
  • Deed of Easements
  • Transfer of Substation
  • Site set up
  • Plot sales
  • Plot purchases
  • Help to Buy

All our fee earners are equipped to deal with the plot sales, and regularly deal with Help to Buy. Our team work alongside developers to identify problems and come to a solution that suits our developers needs.

To provide that personal service we ensure that each development site has its own dedicated individual so that our developers have a specific point of contact who can develop an in depth knowledge regarding the site to assist our developers with any queries their buyers have.

Our team prides themselves on being able to work under pressure and are readily available to deal with high volume sites. They have robust and streamlined procedures in place to competently deal with busy financial periods such as our developers half year and year end.

Our team has a strong emphasis on technology and therefore they work closely with our IT department to ensure that our internal case management programmes suit our clients needs and meet technological advances.

Our fees for acquisition, site set up and infrastructure are based on an hourly rate, however, we try where possible to agree a pricing structure from the beginning. We will keep in regular contact with our developers regarding the progress of their matters but also on the level of our fees.

With regards to plot sales we have a competitive pricing structure.

We appreciate the challenges in the industry and how the law is constantly evolving and therefore to keep you updated we will post blogs and updates on our website.
