Who do Pitmans’ Real Estate lawyers work for?
Pitmans’ Real Estate practice has one of the largest and most highly respected teams in the South of England. We provide expert real estate legal advice to a wide range of business sectors, acting for developers, investors, funders, pension funds, institutions, landlords, tenants and retailers.
Do Pitmans’ Real Estate lawyers have any particular areas of expertise?
Our team works closely with other disciplines throughout the firm on your commercial and residential transactions to provide you with a comprehensive service. We also work with our Construction & Planning teams to provide advice and negotiate building contracts, professional appointments and warranties, development funding agreements and planning agreements.
Our areas of expertise in Real Estate law include:
We have strong corporate relationships – our reputation for representing corporates is among the best in the market. Our Corporate team has detailed experience of corporate acquisitions and disposals of real estate portfolios and single asset vehicles, joint ventures and restructurings. Our Corporate and Real Estate teams work together to ensure that our clients' real estate objectives are always at the forefront of the transaction.
We work with our Banking & Finance team in advising developers, pension funds and institutions on funding for investments and developments. We have particular expertise in working with major UK banks, providing assistance on secured lending transactions. In conjunction with our Insolvency & Restructuring team, we can provide you with specialist advice in relation to tenant default and strategies for dealing with potentially insolvent tenants.
We act for some of the most prominent nationwide homebuilders in the UK. Our strength in this market is driven from our experience in managing the entire process of a new building project. From acquiring the site to changing land use, securing finance or individual plot sales – often for major sites of up to 1,000 plots – we have the expertise to effectively manage and lead our clients through the steps.
We have particular expertise in mixed-use developments – handling this type of large, complex transaction is one of our key strengths.
We continue to lead the market in the active and significant field of social housing, working with some of the major Housing Associations to ensure projects comply with national directives, while managing their financial return.
If potential lease disputes arise between landlords and tenants, we aim to negotiate a speedy resolution on your behalf. If this is not possible, Pitmans’ Dispute Resolution team can help. We also have particular expertise in Construction and Engineering Disputes.
