We have the most experienced team of specialist Rights to Light surveyors based in Birmingham and around the UK
With this unrivalled expertise, our Birmingham rights of light surveyors deliver solutions to schemes affected by rights of light, maximizing the development potential of a site whilst respecting the amenity of neighbouring buildings.
Our Birmingham Rights to Light surveyors are based in offices in the heart of the city. Just around the corner from St Philip's Cathedral they provide Rights of Light advice in the city and across the West Midlands.
Rights of Light can be one of the key determinants of the development potential of a site, particularly in dense urban areas.
No matter the size of a project, from modest residential work to the largest commercial developments, we apply the same expertise, care and attention to detail.
We work with investors, developers, owners and occupiers to assess schemes and provide clear strategic advice on potential issues, whilst proactively managing any associated risk.
With our practical and creative approach we look to take account of the commercial opportunities as well as the limitations.
Rights of Light for Developers
From site acquisition through to the resolution of rights by negotiation, we advise our clients on how to optimise the development potential of a site, whilst mitigating the impact to affected neighbours.
Using the latest specialist software and 3D laser scan data, we create 3D models and undertake cutting edge analysis.
We deliver solutions to affected schemes, maximizing the development potential of sites and providing certainty to enable development to progress.
Rights of Light for Adjoining Owners
We analyse proposed schemes and review the impacts on our client’s properties that adjoin proposed developments. We devise strategies for negotiating a settlement or scheme variation to settle any potential claim for loss of light.
Rights of Light Management
We advise owners of property portfolios on the management of their assets, including the use of Light Obstruction Notices to prevent neighbouring properties from acquiring rights.
