Commercial & Residential Development

We have the experience and knowledge to advise on property development projects of all sizes from conception through to completion.

The Ellis Jones team is proficient in anticipating your needs as a property developer and draw on their wide-ranging skill set to advise on all areas of commercial development, be it site acquisition and/or assembly and onward sales and lettings.

We understand the groundwork involved in bringing a development site to market and will be on hand to ensure that the rapid response times which are often required to get the deal done, happen. From conditional contracts and option agreements, to pre-letting and selling the final units, we have all of the breadth of experience necessary to advise on all areas of land development.

We recognise that clients need solicitors who have a keen eye for detail but can give fast and commercial advice; working closely with clients’ other professional advisors, such as surveyors, architects, planning consultants, construction teams, accountants and lenders.

  • Joint Venture Agreements

  • Funding Agreements
  • Development Agreements
  • Restrictive Covenant advice
  • Build Agreements
  • Option Agreements
  • Pre-emption Agreements
