At George Ide, our well-established real estate team has a reputation for commitment, integrity and excellence and we pride ourselves on strong and clear communication – our wealth of experience will help your business flourish.
From assisting with property or land acquisitions to drawing up effective contracts, dealing with planning obligations and promoting your company’s best interests during a sale or purchase, our experienced team will work behind-the-scenes on your behalf, helping you bring your development to a successful conclusion with the minimum of fuss.
We are well-placed to act across the full spectrum of property-related legal matters for a wide variety of corporate clients – from minnows to giants – including property developers, investors, landed estates, property management companies, trusts, and landlords.
Buying and selling land, plots or property assets
For businesses and investors considering property acquisitions, site assembly or sales, we offer invaluable experience and insightful local knowledge – we will adapt our services to your requirements, either working with you throughout a one-off project or providing on-going advice and support to enhance your longer-term investment plan, including portfolio management.
Our specialist and practical legal expertise will help smooth the progress of your property transaction and, because we know every deal is different, we focus our resources on meeting our clients’ commercial needs according to the specific circumstances of each transaction.
Whether you have an interest in one property or one hundred properties, your business will be stronger with George Ide’s commercial lawyers on your side.
Overage and option agreements
Our development team is also experienced in facilitating options to property purchase, drawing up conditional or unconditional land contracts and advising purchasers and landowners on the full implications of bespoke (and often tricky) overage agreements.
We will work in conjunction with other expert professionals including surveyors, architects and financial advisors to achieve your corporate objectives and ensure your best interests remain at the heart of each and every transaction.
Planning statutory agreements
Our specialist commercial property solicitors are well-versed in all aspects of planning obligations. We will be on your side from concept to completion, guiding you through the implications of any Section 106 demands, unilateral undertakings, highways agreements, utility connection arrangements, stopping-up and diversion applications.
Whether as a developer you are required to comply with land-use restrictions, undertake road improvements, facilitate new public transport routes, or provide recreational facilities – public gardens, for example, or a park – our legal expertise is on hand to ensure the agreement represents your company’s best interests throughout the life of the development project and beyond.

Thanks again for your prompt and great service and assistance.
I suffered a complex ankle injury in a road traffic accident in 2015, Paul Fretwell and the team at George Ide stepped in to manage my claim and helped me through a very challenging period in my life. The team’s experience with this type of injury, their considered approach and meticulous attention to detail enabled them to flag up any potential issues early on, and ensured there were no surprises along the way. Paul was able to see beyond the conventional claim headings, and took the time to understand the full impact of the injury, on my life and hobbies, and was keen to ensure they were all suitably reflected within the claim. Three years on, we went into a Joint Settlement Meeting with a robust and well prepared case, allowing us to secure a claim that significantly exceeded our expectations. I would not have a moment’s hesitation in recommending him to anyone in a similar situation.RS
