  • Easements and rights affecting the land, especially rights of light – can they be dealt with?
  • Are easements and rights needed for the development?
  • Adverse possession issues
  • Restrictive covenants – will they be a problem for the development?
  • Contaminated land and site surveys – avoiding future issues
  • Planning obligations and Community Infrastructure Levy – issues to avoid
  • Roads and sewers – stopping up, adoption, ransom strips, etc.
