  • the sale or purchase of an auction property;
  • the purchase of a new build property, including where you intend to buy off plan;

With commercial property Natalie can act for you in:

  • the process of developing a site for housing or commercial use, including assistance with negotiating the purchase of land, applying for planning permission, site construction and subsequent plot sales and tenancy arrangements;
  • the negotiation of conditional sale contracts, options and overage agreements for potential development land;
  • new build and conversion projects; and
  • the redevelopment of agricultural property.  

Examples of recent cases

Natalie has recently:

  • helped clients buy a house with no legally recognised right of access by compiling evidence to show the road leading to and from the house had been used for a number of years without objection which enabled insurance to be obtained to cover the clients if their right to use the road was ever successfully challenged;
  • acted for a developer in the sale of twenty properties in Medway where each sale was required to happen in quick succession and the sale agreements needed to be drafted carefully as the land on which the properties were built was registered under three separate titles with the Land Registry; and
  • negotiated the variation of a residential lease to include the right of the tenant to use shared services in the building in which their flat was housed and which they were not permitted to use under the terms of their original lease.
