Discussing Development Disputes
Yesterday, we hosted a seminar covering some key issues facing today's developers. The panel, made up of speakers from our Real Estate Disputes team, and their hot topics up for discussion were:
Obtaining vacant possession - Paul Tonkin (Senior Associate) Collective enfranchisement of residential or mixed use properties - Tim Reid (Senior Associate) Residential tenant's rights of first refusal – Edward John (Senior Associate) Rights to light and the impact of Coventry v Lawrence – Dellah Gilbert (Of Counsel)
Mathew Ditchburn, partner, assumed the role of MC for the event which was attended by over 120 people, including developers, fund managers, agents and investors from across the industry.
As always, the important message for developers is to start your planning early and to plan for the worst, as there are many pitfalls that can turn a successful development project into a series of delays and costly court actions.
