Developing & Subdividing

Are you planning to develop or subdivide your property?

Engaging a knowledgeable solicitor is essential to navigate the complexities of property development and subdivision.

At Atkinson Crehan Law, we specialise in providing comprehensive legal support for property developers and landowners. Our goal is to streamline the subdivision process and ensure all legal aspects are meticulously managed. Here’s how we can assist you:

Coordination and Documentation

Once your surveyor’s plan of subdivision is completed, we take charge of coordinating the preparation and signing of all subdivisional documents by all relevant parties. We meticulously manage this process to ensure the new Certificates of Title are issued as quickly as possible, minimising any delays.

Expert Legal Advice

Our experienced team provides expert advice on inter-title issues such as height restrictions, easements, and restrictive covenants. We help you maintain the appropriate standards for your development, ensuring compliance with local regulations and safeguarding your interests.

Title and Zoning Compliance

Understanding and complying with title and zoning requirements is crucial for successful property development. We conduct thorough title searches and provide guidance on zoning laws, helping you navigate the legal landscape effectively. Our expertise ensures your development is fully compliant with all legal requirements.

Easements and Restrictive Covenants

Easements and restrictive covenants can significantly impact your development plans. We provide detailed advice on these issues, helping you understand their implications and ensuring they are correctly addressed in your subdivision plans. Our goal is to protect your interests and facilitate a smooth development process.

Environmental and Planning Permissions

Securing the necessary environmental and planning permissions is a critical step in property development. We assist you in obtaining all required permits and approvals, ensuring your project meets environmental standards and local planning regulations. Our comprehensive support helps you avoid potential legal pitfalls and delays.

Dispute Resolution

Property development and subdivision can sometimes lead to disputes with neighbouring property owners or local authorities. Our skilled legal team is adept at resolving such disputes efficiently, protecting your interests and ensuring your project stays on track.
