Land Development

Hardcastle Burton provide strategic advice and practical support to landowners of all sizes – from small, one-off sales of building plots or surplus buildings to large multi-landowner collaborations on long-term strategic land.

Tax charges on property transactions can be significant, particularly where wide-ranging anti-avoidance legislation is triggered by the unwary. We can help you to navigate the complexities of the tax system and ensure transactions are structured tax-efficiently.
