Development agreements are needed between developers, landowners, and funders to set out the obligations of each party involved in a development agreement.
All development agreements will have some sort of common element, but each development agreement will be different as its need to be bespoke and tailored for a specific development.
Types of Development Agreements
- Pre-let agreement or agreement for lease: This is where a tenant takes a lease on completion of the development
- “Stand alone” development agreement: where a landowner contracts with a developer to carry out a development project, either at the expense of the developer or at the expense of the landowner
- Forward purchase agreement / Forward funding agreement: This is a contract between the developer and the purchaser at the early stages before planning or construction have even taken place, where the developer sells the completed development to the purchaser.
