Housebuilders

Our team of experts know the business of building houses inside out – we’ve been advising housebuilders for decades, so we understand what you need and we can provide a full range of legal advice.

We know that housebuilders are facing some notable potential challenges across an ever-more-complex industry.  However, our experience means we’re really well positioned to help you address those challenges: supply chain issues; increasing demand for land; navigating a constantly-changing planning environment; making sure you can adequately plan and meet your ESG commitments; recruiting and retaining the people your business needs; managing disputes; and handling compliance and regulation are all things that need careful attention if they are not to cause an issue further down the line.

Our real estate and planning teams will help move things along smoothly and quickly, while our dedicated Plot Sales Team will manage estate set-up and plot sales work and can support your business from initial site acquisition all the way through to final disposals.

Should you need them, we have specialists in energy, environmental, supply chain, diversity and ethical business governance. Our Technology Practice can advise on the latest innovations – including blockchain, which the Land Registry is experimenting with, as its potential to store accurate property records means it could serve as the basis for property transactions in the future.

We also work frequently with our commercial and disputes teams to make sure the contracts our clients have in place can withstand supply chain issues and disputes – putting steps in place to make sure that things don’t go wrong in the first place; and our H&S, environmental and consumer protection compliance specialists will be able to keep you on the straight and narrow when it comes to your compliance and regulation obligations.
