Rights Of Light
Rights of Light expertise to optimise development potential
At GIA we have one of the largest dedicated rights of light departments in the UK and have provided solutions to legal right to light issues in many of the most prestigious developments throughout London, as well as the country as a whole.
Together with planning, rights of light can be one of the largest constraints on development potential in built-up areas. We have helped projects of all types to progress smoothly from planning through to completion, with excellent outcomes for clients and developers. With a practical and creative approach, our rights of light surveyors always take account of the commercial opportunities as well as the limitations.
We work with architects, developers and clients to identify potential and analyse solutions. Our case studies demonstrate an ability to resolve issues for development teams and to successfully conclude negotiations with neighbouring property owners or surveyors on the client’s behalf.
In development schemes where issues of rights of light can influence the outcome, our team offers value, innovation and strategic solutions.
