Commercial Real Estate expertise
Many of her transactions proceed by means of a development agreement or an option. Caroline has considerable experience in drafting and negotiating such agreements, and in other contractual arrangements which involve the sharing of profit and risk, such as property joint ventures, overage contracts and promotion agreements.
Caroline also provides specialist legal advice in relation to planning obligations - commonly known as Section 75 Agreements. She undertakes the negotiation, drafting and revisal of such contracts, and their modification and discharge.
"Caroline Docherty is very much an expert in relation to land transactions. I have valued her clear advice and ability to progress transactions for over 25 years."
