Property and Land Development

Whether you are a property developer or a landowner with land that has development potential, then Hunt & Coombs will be able to assist you. The team at Hunt & Coombs is experienced at dealing with large and small developments and will give you the assistance you require whether it is preliminary advice or help in negotiating a multi-party option agreement.

At Hunt & Coombs we can assist you with:

  • Conditional Contracts
  • Option Agreements
  • Promotion Agreements
  • Overage Agreements
  • Collaboration Agreements
  • Site assembly and title issues
  • Planning and infrastructure agreements


It is easy to feel daunted as a landowner during a development transaction, the professionals involved will often use acronyms and technical terms that seem to obscure the details that a landowner wants to know. The team at Hunt & Coombs will help to cut through the jargon and support the landowner at every stage. We are able to advise on the key issues, help you avoid the pitfalls and find fair compromises with developers. The opportunities offered by property development can generate large capital sums and the property development team can liaise with the private client team and your other professional advisors to meet your objectives and plan for the future.


The property development team at Hunt & Coombs has acted for small and large developers across the region. We understand the drivers involved in property development and the hurdles that need to be jumped. Our experience in dealing with every stage of the development process means that we can save our developer clients time by asking the right questions early and anticipating and mitigating issues that may cause a problem later.
