Land Acquisition for Development

Henderson Homes is the chosen development partner for a new canalside scheme of six family homes off Hurst Lane in Bollington, Cheshire. The development has been planned to complement it’s attractive location and has been designed in close consultation with the Trust governing the land and canal.

The legal documentation was forwarded to Jackson Barrett & Gass to check and approve. The process was made significantly more complicated due to planning requirements, a number of relevant planning applications and the requirement for works to follow the Trust’s Code of Practice.

Jackson Barrett & Gass performed their usual duties, including but not limited to:

  • Checking the Freehold title
  • Submitting searches requested by the client
  • Checking the standard Commercial property Standard Enquiries (CPSEs)
  • Checking five planning applications
  • Raising further enquiries on all of the above
  • Preparing a formal report with references to specific clauses and enquiries
  • Advising on specific clauses e.g. conservation area

Professionalism and efficiency at all times

Due to the volume of work and the development’s location alongside a canal in a conservation area, this was a complex and detailed legal matter which needed considerable attention and consideration. Jackson Barrett & Gass acted with professionalism and efficiency at all times.

Complex but enjoyable

Hurst Lane was a complex but enjoyable matter to be involved with. We needed to liaise with several parties throughout the process and dealt with a wide ranging scope of documents and consideration within the context of the purchase. I’m confident the development will be highly successful for our client and the local area.
