Joint Ventures

Changing times have seen an increase in parties combining to achieve a desired outcome and this is particularly true when it comes to developing land and property.

Whether for residential or commercial development, we can advise on the best structure and what the parties need to agree upon. The "devil is in the detail" with joint venture agreements and we can guide you to make sure your interests are protected.

We provide advice on joint ventures to clients around Yorkshire from our offices in Leeds, York and Sheffield. For an initial discussion on the specifics of your joint venture, contact a member of our team today by calling 0333 323 5292, or complete our online contact form and we will get back to you.

Joint Venture Terms

Frequently, one party will own land but will not necessarily have the skill or resource to see it profitably developed, and another will have those missing elements. Working together, the land can be developed and both parties profit.

But getting the terms of such a joint venture arrangement just right for a particular development and deciding what each party can contribute is quite a skill in itself - this is where we can help. We have extensive experience of managing property joint ventures, be they contractual or in the form of a joint venture company or limited liability partnership.

Important elements to consider when entering a joint venture agreement can include the following:

  • Financial contributions from each partner
  • Third-party financing
  • Ongoing capital requirements
  • Defaulting partners
  • Frameworks for dealing with any arising issues
  • Exit strategies

No matter the arrangement, Lupton Fawcett can help you draft a watertight agreement for you and any partners involved.

Tax Considerations

To ensure the success of a joint venture, tax efficiency must be considered. Here at Lupton Fawcett, our tax team can help you ensure that your joint venture remains tax transparent, whilst ensuring additional costs, such as capital gains, remain at a minimum. We can also provide you with help and advice around any tax issues you and your joint venture may face.

  • I was recommended to Lupton Fawcett by our Financial Adviser to deal with our commercial lease renewal. They were able to offer me expert advice and negotiate better terms with our landlord on various matters. They kept me informed of developments and were very professional in all area's. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their legal services.
