Property Development & Planning Matters
The development of real estate property on both large and small scales has long been central to property markets. What is perhaps significant in the last two decades is that property development in its many forms is no longer the sole domain of larger development entities.
Throughout the 1990’s and the 2000’s a number of smaller companies and many individuals have become involved in property development be it from the modest duplex to larger scale developments. People involved in these activities make significant financial investments and should ensure that they receive expert Property Law advice to minimise the potential for loss during the course of their development. Just as it is important for the property developer to know his or her market so is it that the developers legal representative needs to be fully conversant with a large range of taxation, planning and legal issues which may impact on the success of their client’s developments.
