One of the UK's leading house builders is looking to grow its legal function with an additional Real Estate lawyer.

Reporting into the Legal Director - Land and Acquisitions based in Northampton, you will be on hand to offer first line advice and have responsibility for transactional work covering the Midlands, Home Counties, Thames Valley and South. You will advise on land acquisitions, options and promotion agreements, strategic land opportunities, regeneration projects and an element of commercial developments.

Within the Land & Acquisition function of the legal department you will be involved with the following:

- Affordable Housing Sales on a turnkey/golden brick basis;
- Planning Agreements;
- Joint Venture Agreements;
- Legal Charges;
- Post completion work;
- Management Agreements and Transfers;
- Site Title Due Diligence
- Site set ups;
- Related finance documents
- Infrastructure Agreements

In addition the management team/ board members are looking for an individual who can 'add value' to the business. In practice this will be someone that can mix with the various disciplines within the organisation, be creative in finding solutions to problems and be able to work to deadlines with internal stakeholders.

This is a role that requires a lawyer with strong academics, strong development experience, especially in acquisitions, with a can-do and hands on attitude.
