Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Property professionals invited to property development seminars

DEVELOPERS, architects, local authorities and professionals from the wider construction and development industries are invited to specialist property development seminars, which will be hosted by experts at leading East Midlands-based law firm Nelsons.

The free events – which will take place at Nelsons’ Leicester office, in Provincial House, New Walk, on 21 May and Nelsons’ Derby office in Sterne House, Lodge Lane, on 23 May – will share top tips on securing a site and preparing it for sale, as well as protecting planning permission and other post-consent considerations, including:

  • Initial considerations
  • Option agreements
  • Landowners’ collaboration agreements
  • Promotion agreements
  • Protecting the planning permission and other post-consent considerations
  • Site disposal, including contracts conditional on planning
  • Developers’ collaboration agreements
  • Preparing the site for sales.

Martin Jinks, partner in Nelsons’ commercial property team, said:

“Property developments across the country often encounter various challenges and issues. Some to be considered during the events include: ecology issues; property being listed as an Asset of Community Value; human remains on site; archaeological evidence on site; and many others.

“However, there are ways developers can plan for and overcome obstacles so that building projects can go ahead and, ultimately, be successful.

“Our free seminars are open to anyone involved or contemplating becoming involved in developments, as well as professionals who advise in this area – such as planning consultants, developers, architects, surveyors, local authorities and agents.”

The seminar took place in Nottingham last week and received unanimous acclaim, with guests stating that the event was “one of the best I have attended”, “interesting with wide ranging content” and “well-structured and engaging”.

The seminars are free to attend but places are limited. To register your attendance, please email [email protected] or call 0800 024 1976. Registration will take place from 9am with the seminar starting at 9.15am and expected to finish at 12.30pm. A light lunch will be served following the events.
