Proven Results

The Client

Last Mile

Project

Site in South Wales

The Challenge

This project involved a heavily complex site with multiple landowners, including landlords and third party owners, a DNO and an investment fund with their own stringent requirements. To add to this multifaceted site, there was also an unregistered freehold following the transfer of part on an estate, an unregistered leasehold title, as well as various environmental concerns. 

How We Helped

Our team of experts completed the transaction within three months, meeting the developer’s tight completion window with ease​
We secured cost contributions from the developer, resulting in large cost savings to ​ our client​
Our dedicated team of experts included representation at senior level to progress the instruction as quickly as possible
The developer also benefitted, with no delay to practical completion, no liquidated damages payable to the investment fund and tenant, and importantly no lost rental income – representing substantial savings to all parties involved​

“Shakespeare Martineau’s industry knowledge and understanding of our commercial objectives shone through both on paper and in person, and their delivery is matching up to their promise.” ​
