Pre-development advice - home development solicitors

Planning a home improvement or property development should be an exciting time. Whether extending a property to accommodate a larger family, modernising your home or any other form of development, the realisation is often very different. Development can be stressful costly and time consuming at the best of times but becoming involved in a dispute with a neighbour could turn your dream into a nightmare.

With this in mind our team of neighbour dispute solicitors have introduced a fixed price pre-development advice package aimed at keeping the risk of getting involved in a costly and unpleasant neighbour dispute to an absolute minimum. For £495* plus any related disbursements we will review the relevant documentation and highlight any potential issues with your intended development, we will also draft a letter informing your neighbours of your proposals and inviting them to raise any concerns they have.
