Seminar Details In this joint seminar Jacqui will provide an overview of the salient points in an Option and Lease Agreement from a developer’s perspective, with particular emphasis on the provisions in the drafts which a landowner’s solicitor should refrain from revising where possible.  As part of the core Renewable Energy Team, Jacqui provides advice on the wide range of legal documents required for a renewable energy Projects. In addition to advising on the fine detail of an Option and Lease Agreement for a wind farm, Jacqui is also involved in the early stages of a wind farm project, such as reviewing and advising developers on their Heads of Terms before being issued to the landowner and examining and reporting to developers on the relevant information contained within the Owner’s title deeds. She has also advised developers on bringing sites to financial close.

Graham will outline the corporate vehicles and structures which a landowner may wish to put in place in order to grant the option agreement and to which the landowner may wish the wind farm rent to be paid, all with a view to minimising a landowner’s tax liability, whilst having in place a structure which works for the developer.
