on your side

George Ide LLP solicitors for land acquisitions

Here at George Ide LLP, our solicitors for land acquisitions can help housing developers, business developers, farmers and local authorities to buy land on which to build homes, businesses, schools or for agricultural purposes.

In many cases, an acquisition of land will be strategic and negotiations may be complex. The interests of all concerned parties, buyers, sellers and the local community, must be protected and legal teams will need to be mindful of, and considerate to, all major concerns for all sides. If apprehensions and anxieties about a transaction are not examined, the deal could become protracted and unnecessarily costly.

If you wish to buy land in the UK, whether for domestic, commercial or agricultural purposes, you must abide by the Land Acquisition Act 1981 and it is likely that clauses in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 will have to be adhered to. Land sales which depend on an outcome of a planning application can be particularly challenging.
