"Wasim was extremely helpful in ensuring that our 200 home simultaneous site acquisition and affordable housing deal happened within the required timeframes."

Pip Phipps, Land Manager, Taylor Wimpey Plc

Experience

  • Acted for a Guernsey-based property developer on the complex sale of affordable home apartments in a mixed-use Canary Wharf development. A number of bespoke provisions in the transaction documents were incorporated including in relation to the payment of LADs, escrow payments and CHP.
  • Wasim drafted, negotiated and completed the agreement for lease which included the build and development obligations and key construction elements as well as the draft lease with the affordable housing provider purchaser.
  • Acted for a national housebuilder on the acquisition of a rural site for residential development in Essex with an estimated gross development value of £38m. The deal was a collaboration between multiple stakeholders including three landowners and a land promoter. The structure included several phased payments, overages and a contemporaneous sale to another housebuilder to assist cash flow for the client.
  • Acted for an RP on the conditional acquisition of 120 units from a PLC housebuilder in the south east. The circa £16m transaction included conditionality for reserved matters and a price adjustment clause in the event that the tenure mix was changed. The retention was to be held as part of an escrow agreement.
  • Assisted with the multi-million pound acquisition of a site for a charitable trust to be developed as a retirement village. The purchase was conditional upon the grant of satisfactory planning permission and the agreement included the seller's development obligations and associated financial retentions.
  • Acted for a Local Authority in its acquisition of vacant residential properties as part of a large residential regeneration scheme pursuant to a PFI agreement with a RP.

 

"Wasim managed the entire affordable housing process. Would highly recommend Wasim for any affordable housing contract and wider property matters."
