Commercial New Build Solicitors

Our new build solicitors have proven experience in advising house builders and developers on their projects, from site acquisition and refinance through to that final plot sale.

We pride ourselves on our dedication to each project. Our new build solicitors can tailor their work to the individual needs of developers and/or their agent, and offer an initial set up meeting. We also offer site visits in person on request and provide our clients with a dedicated team member to oversee the project from start to finish.

Our new build development expertise

Our new build lawyers work mostly across Bristol and South Gloucestershire, however, our established connections with house builders have taken us across the South West region.

In addition to advising on any aspect of new builds, our new build solicitors work closely with our Commercial Law and Commercial Property teams where necessary to ensure every aspect of your matter is taken care of.

Purchase and sale of land for development

Our commercial property solicitors act in both the sale and purchase of land for development. By having our legal expertise on hand, you can rest assured knowing that building can go ahead without a hitch.

Our lawyers also deal with site acquisitions and producing agreements for the plot sale or lease.

Plot sales and lettings

Our new build solicitors work closely with our commercial property team to identify where they could potentially assist in the development’s future. After our commercial property lawyers have dealt with the initial site acquisition and development refinance, our specialist new build solicitors can take this forward to the eventual plot sales.

Our new build team have proven expertise in all aspects of plot sales and leasing. We can help you with:

  • Disposal strategy and the implementation of management solutions.
  • The creation of detailed site-specific information packs for plot purchasers to promote a quick exchange of contracts.
  • Arranging for Land Registry approval of plans and plots prior to disposal of each unit, where possible.

Our solicitors have experience in acting on both freehold and leasehold new build sales, and on a scale from just one plot to over 100 plots. Our dedicated team are happy to take on any development size.

Property finance

As a developer, it’s vital to ensure you comply with finance regulations before and during your site build. Our commercial property lawyers can help ensure that you meet financial and lender requirements to avoid any delays further down the line.

Landlord and tenant services

Once your new build homes are completed and ready to sell or let, our specialist property litigation solicitors are on hand to help landlords draft tenancy agreements and leases. The team can also advise on landlord and tenant dispute resolution and possession proceedings.

Buying and selling a new build property

Whilst our commercial property lawyers specialise in new build development, we have an experienced residential conveyancing team who can advise your buyers on purchasing or selling their new homes.

  • Company ownership
  • Contract terms for exchange
  • Land registry requirements

    • "I used Barcan+Kirby to purchase my house and I was impressed with their service. As a normal person I don't really do much legal stuff and so I was worried it was going to be a major hassle and really expensive. However, they were very good at doing all the paperwork, explained everything to me really well and it did not cost as much as I thought it would! Thanks a lot guys!"
