In the current vibrant property market, it is increasing popular to undertake major home renovations, rebuilds and refurbishments to attain the home you want to live in.
These projects are often complex and it is never too early to consider the legal ramifications of what you want to achieve. You will, for example, need to ensure you understand and take account of what planning law applies, consider what your rights and responsibilities are to your neighbours, and plan how to best structure the work. It is also important to ensure you have the appropriate contracts in place with your architects, builders and suppliers to protect yourself if things go wrong during the project or in the future.
