Forbes are involved in a number of schemes where we purchase ‘off the shelf’ Section 106 developments, and where the timescales are short between exchanging contracts with the developer and build completion of the first affordable units. Forbes always work to our timescales for the drafting of the Shared Ownership lease and setting up the conveyancing.
