With UK development targets for housing set at 300,000 new properties each year until 2025 and nearly one-third of our reports identifying properties as having a high risk of development within 75m, the construction industry is booming. This means that conveyancers are under increasing pressure to provide clients with information that identifies and analyses any risk of development that could impact their investment.

During this webinar, we’ll look at the challenges with identifying development risk, the implications for conveyancers and look at how to adopt a best practice approach to protect both clients and solicitors.

  • In this one hour development risk session, we’ll look in detail at :
  • National Planning Policy
  • Five-year housing supply and its importance.
  • Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessments (SHLAA)
  • Bird and Bird case law
  • Case studies
  • There will also be opportunity for a Q&A if you have further questions in this area.


This webinar is hosted by poweredbypie.
