A Brief Legal Guide to Development in the UK

December 2014
Mayer Brown Brochure
This Guide explains some of the key issues to consider when planning your proposed development in the UK. It is very much an introduction to the subject and like all legal systems, the UK is subject to regular change, therefore please be careful to check with us that the law as stated here is still in force.

Please note that Scotland, England and Wales, and Northern Ireland are largely separate jurisdictions for legal purposes. This Guide relates only to the laws of England and Wales. If you are considering property development in Scotland or Northern Ireland please consult us first.
