New Homes

Our Real Estate practice is the largest in the country and deploys a dedicated New Homes team comprising 20 people to focus solely on residential sales.

Our New Homes team is in a position to operate the timely and efficient completion of high volume residential sales in a cost effective manner. Our experienced team is well-positioned to advise on all elements from site acquisition, financing and planning advice, through to establishing development and management structures and the ultimate sale of the units and distribution of funds.

Using a practical approach and specific high-quality document management systems, we effectively manage all sizes and types of residential development sales from start to finish.  We specialise in the sale of individual units in residential development schemes as well as block sales of units within developments.

We have also invested in a state of the art document management system which greatly assists in the efficient generation of documents required for streamlining the sales process and in updating trackers and reporting to clients.

Our New Homes team took home the top award for “Innovation in Legal Expertise” at the prestigious FT Innovative Lawyers Awards 2018 for the approach the team has taken to Ireland’s conveyancing process and the assistance the team has provided in the sale of over 5,000 properties throughout Ireland.


All 20 members of our New Homes team have been specifically selected on the basis of their expertise and their active involvement in large-scale residential and commercial property sales.  The majority of our 10 legal executives worked in law firms acting for developers on large residential sales projects during the last development cycle and have ample experience in working to deadlines and getting sales closed on time.

Our New Homes team is supported by and works collaboratively with our Construction, Planning, Financial ServicesCorporate and Tax teams to offer a full range of services to suit your evolving requirements at any time.
