Barn Conversion & Development

If you are a property owner and have secured planning permission to develop a barn into residential units, or you’re in the process of preparing for planning consent, we can provide you with expert advice.

Careful planning and consideration is needed at every stage of a barn conversion to ensure that the division of the units within a small development enjoy all of the rights needed for access and services.  It is important that an appropriate structure is put in place to enable shared maintenance contributions to be imposed and collected.

We actively guide our clients through the various stages of their developments to make certain that all relevant matters are addressed at the appropriate times.  Our significant experience allows us to foresee the potential problems which ultimately hamper and delay sales to prospective buyers and which may cause issues for their mortgage lenders.

Equally, our experience in acting for developers makes us well placed to advise purchasers interested in acquiring barn conversions or properties located on small developments.

Our team can advise you on:

  • Barn conversion and new development sales & purchases
  • Legal issues to be considered by developers
  • Drawing up standard documentation to deal with barn conversion and development unit sales
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax & Land Registry issues
