Property development FAQs
An option agreement provides a developer with the option to purchase land from the landowner at a certain date or when a trigger event occurs (normally the granting of planning permission). In exchange for the option, the developer pays the landowner a non-refundable deposit. For developers, option agreements provide an ideal solution in situations where they find the perfect land for their development but need to acquire planning permission before work can commence.
A development agreement sets out the relationship between the development’s stakeholders. Types of development agreements include:
- Forward funding agreement.
- Speculative funding agreement.
- Agreement for lease.
- Forward purchase agreement.
- Stand-alone development agreement.
- Joint venture agreement.
Most development agreements cover the following elements:
- Quality of the development.
