Experience

Plot sales is fast-paced with many deadlines having to be met for both exchange of contracts and completions, particularly in peak times such as Christmas, Easter and Bank Holidays where many sales are completed on the same day.  Advance preparation is essential in such cases as well as receiving up to date information from buyers’ solicitors to ensure the transactions run smoothly.

"Wright Hassall LLP’s work is ‘on a par with the big London firms’. It is acting for Chase Commercial on the redevelopment of a large site in Bromsgrove, and is providing ongoing advice to BMW and JC Decaux (UK)."
