Meet The Team

"Property development" covers a wide range of activities from the refurbishment of an existing property, to the acquisition of land and the obtaining of planning consent for the construction of a whole housing estate or commercial centre.

We have a great deal of experience working alongside local and regional developers to realise their business ambitions. Our strong local connections with banks, surveyors and commercial agents means our existing business relationships work to the advantage of our clients.

Our solicitors work on multi-million pound property development projects, as well as smaller ones involving the development of pockets of land domestic builds.

Whatever form of property development you undertake you need a specialist lawyer who knows what to look for to ensure that your project is successful.  From establishing that you have the necessary rights to connect an electricity supply, to ensuring your neighbour doesn’t have the right to stop you building on your land, our many years of experience means we think like a developer to predict where problems might arise.

Bell & Buxton's specialist commercial property team provide hands-on advice and ensure that legal issues do not crop up during the project which affect your ability to deliver the finished product on time and on budget.

What our clients say
  • I have really enjoyed dealing with Charlotte and have found her very responsive. I had a deadline which she enabled me to easily meet. My own input was accommodated with exactly what I wanted from her i.e. fine-tuned such that it was legally robust.


  • "Excellent Service. Efficient, high level of expertise."


  • "This was a sensitive buy out of my business partner. Emma & Alex were excellent, not only in the legal matters but also empathised with the difficulties. The deal was well executed and a close attention to detail. We will be using Bell & Buxton for all our legal requirements."
