Finance arrangements for developers are wide-ranging and complex, and each has its unique challenges and potential complications. Advice from specialists who bring deep commercial insight and knowledge is essential for your peace of mind.
Our specialists are experienced in working with residential and commercial developers. They will provide expert, practical advice to help finance the acquisition of land and the construction work upon it, laying strong foundations for the commercial success of every project.

Reassurance and security

Our development finance lawyers are well-versed in lenders' requirements in terms of title requirements, searches, planning consents and agreements, infrastructure agreements and construction contracts, appointments and warranties.

Our team includes banking law specialists who can advise on the full range of banking and security documents such as facility agreements, legal charges, deeds of subordination and guarantees.

The team takes a “big picture “approach, looking ahead through the life cycle of a project to identify and minimise the risk of potential problems. These could include issues with bonds, VAT treatment and third-party agreements.

This holistic approach enables development finance transactions to progress quickly through from agreement of the loan facility through to draw-down.
