Property development rarely proceeds without a hitch or two somewhere along the line. When it comes to disputes, developers who choose to involve a skillful team of lawyers at the outset stand to minimise the damage caused.
Every sort of property development project is a complex collection of practical, legal and financial considerations. Timing, profitability and completion will be on the minds of those in charge of delivery. For those affected by the development – residential and commercial neighbours for example - the effects of a development on their day-to-day lives and businesses can become all-consuming.
This can create tensions and disputes which can result in projects being stalled or, at worst, aborted.
