Property Development

Members of Lamb Chambers are regularly instructed to advise on, and litigate, a wide range of issues arising out of the development of real estate. We are able to help in advising on the proposed scheme at the pre-construction phase; as well as acting in any disputes that arise from the development itself. Our members are not only experienced litigators, but also able to advise on and act in arbitrations, mediations and other ADR processes.

Our work includes advising and acting in respect of the following:

  • Easements, rights of way and wayleaves
  • Rights of light
  • Conveyancing
  • Restrictive covenants (including their discharge and modification)
  • Party wall disputes and awards
  • Overage agreements
  • Assets of community value under the Localism Act 2011
  • Commercial and residential leasehold (including LTA 1954 tenancies)
  • Boundary disputes
  • Mortgages, charges and finance
  • Joint ventures and the equity in Pallant v Morgan
  • Property damage and nuisance
  • Construction and building disputes; and
  • Professional negligence arising from property development (including construction professionals, surveyors and solicitors)

A number of members of the team also boast considerable expertise in other fields such as construction law and insolvency law and are well place to advise on cross-disciplinary issues.

Lamb Chambers regularly presents seminars and workshops on property development and related areas. Members are happy to either come to clients’ offices or to host them in our conference rooms.
