Our property development focus is borne out of our very longstanding history of acting for many Kent based developers over many years. The sole purpose of the specialist sector focus is to coordinate our resources, contacts and referrers to provide a one stop shop for all our property developer and investment clients.

Areas where our expertise can support your business:

Property development:

• Acquisitions and disposals

• Options, promotion agreements and joint ventures

• Construction contracts, building agreements and collateral warranties

• Property finance and securitisation

• Plot sales

Property investment:

• Sourcing and securing investment

• Management companies

• Leases, tenancies and renewals

• Disputes including dilapidations, enfranchisement and possession

Our specialist lawyers who make up the sector team come from a wide range of backgrounds but all have many years of experience relevant to their area.

When it comes to clients we work hard to get to know your business, regularly visiting your operation and attending many industry events.  We also participate in events with other relevant organisations such as the Construction Expo and the Kent Construction Focus Group (KCFG) to support the sector.

We recognise the important role our lawyers can play in achieving successful outcomes and the difference an experienced and pro-active legal team can bring to your business.

So whether you run a large multinational building firm or have a portfolio of a couple of buy to let properties, we can give you the expert support you need. We have a dedicated team of lawyers here at Whitehead Monckton who all specialise in particular areas of law serving property developers and investors, including commercial, residential and mixed use developments, planning, construction and property disputes.

Who we act for

We act for a variety of business and individual clients, from both the public and private sectors, including developers, land owners and consortiums, local authorities, investors and pension funds.

What makes us different?

One of our major strengths is the depth of experience in our team spread over our three offices.  With property transactions local knowledge can be vital and we have that knowledge across the whole of Kent and beyond.  When we receive instructions, we can hand pick the team from our three offices, determining who is best placed, has capacity and the relevant experience and knowledge for the client.

We deliver on timescales, even when these may seem impossible, offering sensible commercial pragmatic advice.  We always endeavour to have the right mix of legal experience so the task is both correctly resourced and priced as we are very conscious of the need for cost effective legal support for developers and investors alike.

Our pricing is transparent with fixed fees where appropriate and the relevant costs and charges explained. We ensure our searches are robust and comprehensive and the charges for these fully set out.

Our relationships with other professionals are strong, including the specialist advisers to the rural community for land developments. Please also review our Rural focus.
