Baines Wilson advises on Genesis Homes flagship scheme in West Cumbria

The Commercial Property team have advised Genesis Homes on their flagship scheme, ‘Beckstones’ at Rheda Park, near Whitehaven. Genesis have recently concluded the acquisition and the development funding arrangements with the Housing Growth Partnership and Homes England.

The firm supported the transaction from beginning to end. That included the initial option, assistance on planning matters, the acquisition process, and then finally development finance. Genesis Homes have now started construction on the site with properties due to be released in Autumn 2021 and two show homes to be completed in Spring.

Duncan Harty, Head of Commercial Property at Baines Wilson commented: “It was a pleasure to work with the Genesis Team on this development. The scheme at Rheda Park is impressive. It is testament to it’s quality that national funders like HGP and Homes England have seen fit to support the development.”

The Commercial Property team at Baines Wilson have also recently received a significant accolade in this year’s edition of the Legal 500 guide. The team ranked in the top tier for the North region with Head of Department, Duncan Harty and Head of Partnership, Sean Logue listed as Leading Individuals.

Always offering ‘common-sense advice’ with a ‘deep understanding’ of property transactions.
