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.
We have advised on rebuilding, renovation and refurbishment projects in prime London apartments, period houses, country estates and new build mansions, on issues from basement conversions to converting high value apartments and smaller projects.
Our residential property, construction and property litigation lawyers’ work together to ensure you have a robust structure in place to minimise stress and to enable you to enjoy your beautiful home when the project is complete. We work closely with the market leading Contractors, Architects and Engineers and are focused on working collaboratively to ensure your project achieves all of your aspirations
