Tony Nutting is a Senior Associate in the Real Estate Department at Shoosmiths and heads the newly created Plot Sales Team at their Manchester office.


Tony and his team work to ensure that Developers achieve sales of new homes to purchasers as smoothly as possible (whether being bought for a new home or as an investment).  This involves working with the Developer at an early stage after acquisition to create a comprehensive “sales pack” made available online to purchaser’s solicitors to assist with the sales process, whether the Development is a city centre tower of apartments or the provision of new homes in the suburbs.


Tony and his team also have experience in acting for Developers where Developers are looking to use the Government’s Help to Buy scheme or agree to buy purchasers’ existing properties as part exchange for the new property.


Tony will also negotiate sales of affordable houses to Registered Providers and Shared Equity sale documents to enable Developers to satisfy planning obligations, management agreements where open space is required within the estate and infrastructure agreements for the provisions of services to developments.


Tony also has a number of years’ experience acting in the disposal of the reversionary interest in leasehold developments (large scale developments or apartment blocks) down to individual reversionary sales to home owners.  Extensions to existing leases under the current enfranchisement laws are also handled.
