People buy land for a variety of reasons. A growing number of people see the purchase of bare land as an alternative investment to property which has already been developed. Other individuals may want to acquire land near their property to protect it from future development.
The most common types of transactions we deal with are the purchase of additional land to extend an existing garden or a building plot where you are looking to construct your dream home.
Whatever your reasons our highly experienced team of solicitors can assist you with the sale or purchase of land in relation to:
- additional amenity land for your existing property
- development land
- investment land or woodland
- fishing and hunting rights
If you are looking to purchase land to construct your own home, our knowledgeable and experienced solicitors can discuss the transaction in a wider context including the identification of any designations which may affect use such as Environmental Stewardship Schemes or Sites of Specific Scientific Interest and associated environmental issues.
We will ensure that you have the necessary rights for access or services that may be required, whether these already exist or need to be explicitly granted to you.
We can advise you on the creation of restrictions when selling a property including covenants in relation to "uplift" or "clawback", commonly known as overage provisions, on land with development potential. We are also able to act for the majority of the financial providers and have done so on many occasions with high street lenders and also more specialist lenders such as the Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.
We will draw on experience from the other departments within Myerson solicitors where appropriate.
