Understanding planning and other implications when you are acting for a developer is a key skill for property practitioners. A ‘developer' includes a buyer of hundreds of acres of land, as well as a purchaser of a small plot for the purpose of building a single property. Further, a ‘developer’ is any client buying with the benefit of unimplemented planning permission, or looking to apply for planning permission.
Your client is expecting you to help them realise development value, so are you aware of the existing title and other issues which may impact on value? Do you have sound knowledge to be able to negotiate matters required for the developed land? Our well known and respected property experts, Peta Dollar and Sarah Thompson-Copsey, will provide expert guidance enabling you to recognise the issues which are vital for your client.
If you are a commercial or residential property solicitor or other property practitioner, with clients who buy land to develop, this course is for you. It is envisaged that you will already have a good basic knowledge of property law, but lack the experience of development work and the issues it raises. If you do have development experience, the course will also be a useful refresher.
