2. Review of developer/contractor consultant appointments and warranties to ascertain compliance with the contracts and risk profile of any amendments;
3. Review of building contracts to assess compliance with the requirements in the sales contracts;
4. Review sub-contractor contracts and warranties;
5. Agree JCT D&B contracts for fitting out amenity spaces, mainly just finishes;
6. Support during the HoTs negotiations, ie. the non-binding agreements; and
7. Assist in monitoring Sales Agreement obligations post exchange.

This is a unique and very exciting opportunity in the current market and a rare opportunity for an experienced construction lawyer to work part-time in a rewarding and exciting role! You must be UK qualified, based in the UK and must have previous developer JCT contracts experience.
