Commercial Property Development

Our highly skilled business property development lawyers act for property developers, investors and landowners throughout Yorkshire, Teesside and County Durham.

Commercial property development is an exciting prospect for businesses. Therefore, it is understandable but not unusual for businesses to seize an opportunity and be so focused on the potential that they overlook key factors that can, in turn, delay or halt plans in motion.

To avoid these delays or problems, we always recommend appointing an expert in property development law to oversee the process and flag up anything you might have missed in the preparation stages of business property development. That way, we can lift some of the weight off your shoulders by taking care of the finer details while you focus on the vision and strategy of the new development. Commercial property development has inherent risk, but we can mitigate as much of this as possible by offering sound advice and assistance on the legal aspects.

With our experience of advising on smaller developments as well as large-scale projects, business property development and land development law are key specialisms at Newtons. Whether you are a developer who needs assistance securing a site via an option or conditional contract or a landowner who is looking to achieve the development of a site via a promotion agreement, our team can help. Our goal is to make the process of commercial property development as smooth and rewarding as possible for our clients.
