Thursfields’ New Homes Division incorporates a team of property lawyers who know how to work with developers of all sizes to help get the best out of a development opportunity. We recognise that government policy and housing need are fueling the necessity to “keep Britain building”.

Our team of experts include the Commercial Property team who manage the due diligence required prior to a client’s site acquisition or advise on option agreements pending a planning application. The site would then be transferred to our dedicated Residential Development and Plot Sales team in readiness for marketing.

Our areas of expertise also include:

  • Land Acquisitions and Disposals
  • Development Easements
  • Development Finance
  • Development Management Company Set-up
  • Ground Rent Sales
  • Help to Buy Registration
  • Infrastructure Agreements
  • Joint Venture Agreements
  • Land Promotion Agreements
  • Option Agreements
  • Part-Exchange
  • Planning and Section 106 Agreements
  • Private Equity
  • Site set up and Development Sales

It’s not just what we do, it’s the way we do it. Here’s what our clients have to say about us:

“We acquire our sites through the New Homes Division team at Thursfields. We find they work seamlessly delivering the legal assistance we need in a pragmatic way to help us achieve our goal and move on to the next project.”
