Although demand for new build properties in the UK is high, competition is also intense and buyers’ expectations are higher than ever. An experienced, highly efficient and effective plot sales strategy and capability is therefore a crucial factor in the success of any property development project. Consistently ranked in the top tier of both The Legal 500 and Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession, we are regarded as the region's leading full service property team. Our team includes a specialist Plot sales team – the leading service of its type in the Thames Valley.
We handle many hundreds of plot sales transactions each year for commercial and residential property developers. Whatever the scale and scope of the development, we offer a seamless and highly cost-effective service and pride ourselves on a proven track record of outstanding client service and achieving sales on time and to budget, in line with developers’ critical sales programmes and targets.p>
We liaise with our clients’ architects, technical advisers, sales agents, managing agents and sales teams to create a sales strategy and structure that meets the short- and long-term demands of the development and its occupants, promotes efficiency to help meet sales targets and enhances value.
We also act as the "recommended solicitor" for many national house builders – working for purchasers of flats or houses on their developments. We specialise in Help to Buy and other government-backed schemes, as well as handling developers' own incentive schemes.
The team also supports affordable housing providers with sales of new shared equity properties.
How We Can Help
Services for developers include:
- Preparing the site for sale by advising on structure and generating appropriate sales documents in advance of sales commencing
- Preparation of a legal handbook in association with the developer and selling agent
- Setting up management companies and liaising with managing agents to agree management schemes
- Customised billing protocols and transparent invoicing
- Use of a secure online sales micro site
- Use of a secure client extranet
- Regular weekly updates and review meetings with the developer and selling agent (creating cost savings by removing the need to employ a contract chaser)

I wanted to let you know that I was extremely impressed in the manner that the Plot sales team handled all the plot sales at our site in Sandhurst. I thought that they were outstanding. Additionally, the sales agents were similarly impressed.
