Lawyers. For Business.

The Davidson Chalmers Stewart team has extensive experience in dealing with residential developers and housebuilders.

Not only do we have lawyers who are acknowledged leaders in their field who have been working in the housebuilding industry for most of their careers and understand the business of housebuilding, we also have expert lawyers in every area that may help you develop your plans from Planning & Environmental experts to Corporate and Real Estate expertise.

With over 25 years of experience our expert team provides a seamless end-to-end service including initial contracts for land acquisition, site assembly work, planning and infrastructure agreements, Deeds of Conditions, dealing with maintenance issues and use restrictions, and unit sales. We understand the critical importance of ensuring unit sales proceed as planned with the minimum of fuss. Our in-house specialist sales team deals with this essential part of the service.

We act for a wide range of operators in the residential sector – not only developers but also landowners, funders and investors and advise on everything from small bespoke developments to large scale residential developments across Scotland.

This wide-ranging sector experience means we understand the essential commercial issues facing those involved with residential development across Scotland, allowing us to drive transactions and meet tight timescales, minimising the worry and disruption for our clients.
