IT’S THE LAW: Drones

Oh look, it’s Devonshires, droning on again…

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a surveyor (or other building professional)!

Landowners, property professionals, developers and contractors are now taking to the skies when it comes to carrying out surveys and inspections. But there’s a whole new area of law that you’ll need to get to grips with before you can go ‘up, up and away’.

Read our latest issue of ITL to find out more.

Our ITL library is bursting with past issues ranging from ‘what to look for when inspecting a site’ through to ‘what collateral warranties are and why we need them’ so why not take a look.

For further information please contact Neil Toner, Partner, Head of Real Estate at Devonshires.
