Often described as “the bane of developers lives” covenants can and frequently do cause problems and delay and sometimes even prevent development taking place at all. Rod Hughes has particular expertise in this area and has succeeded in many cases in proving that covenants are no longer enforceable and procuring their cancellation from Land Registry records.

The firm offer developers:

  • An initial appraisal as to the possible invalidity and effect of covenants on a fixed fee basis (free to established developer clients)
  • In appropriate cases fee-arrangements linked to success in securing the removal or cancellation of covenants in question

Promotion Agreements for strategic land are also becoming an alternative to Option Agreements whereby a developer agrees to promote a landowner's property by securing planning permission and then marketing the property for sale.
