Due to continued growth, our client are seeking an experienced Lawyer to join their In House Commercial Property Team in East Anglia.

You will support the Commercial Property Team in their development while effectively and independently managing with minimal supervision, a caseload of site purchase/development working alongside other commercial property and development matters.

Predominantly matters will include purchases of bare land for development which includes drafting and negotiating complex conditional contracts, development agreements, transfers of part, completing due diligence on bare land for development and negotiating and entering into ancillary documents such as overage deeds, option agreements, pre-emption agreements and deeds of easement etc.
