We have particular expertise in advising on overage and profit participation agreements. We co-operate effectively with the other parties involved. We advise on the preparation and negotiation of building contract documentation and professional team appointments. Where collateral warranties are required as part of a contract or appointment package, or for potential tenants, funders or purchasers, we advise on the preparation of acceptable forms of bespoke warranties and/or on negotiating standard trade or professional body generated forms of warranty. We have the skills to provide advice on the disposal of a completed development, either as a discrete investment or to owner-occupiers.
