Course Acting for Developers Buying Land


This course is aimed at all property practitioners (whether commercial or residential) whose clients buy land to develop. The term 'developer' includes not only the buyer of several acres but also the purchase of a small plot for one building. Any client buying with the benefit of unimplemented planning permission or looking to apply for planning permission is a 'developer'.

Your client is looking to you to help him realise development value so it is important you are aware of the existing title (and other) issues which may impact on value as well as being able to negotiate those which are required for the developed land.

Using worked examples and case studies the speakers will provide up to the minute help and guidance to enable you to recognise the issues which are material to your client and reach completion with a set of documents which properly record the parties’ intentions

This course will include

  • Dealing with existing restrictive covenants, easements and other third party rights
  • Boundary issues
  • Ransom strips, site not directly abutting public highway
  • Conditional contracts and options, especially planning issues
  • Overage
  • S106 and CIL issues
  • Stopping up and diverting highways and footpaths
  • Site surveys and contamination
  • Issues with common land and town and village greens
It is envisaged that delegates will have a good basic knowledge of property law but may not have had the experience of development work and the issues it raises. It will also serve as a useful refresher for those with development experience.

The course was very well broken down. The presenters kept the material interseting and the case law references were very good, making the notes relevant.
