Before entering into an agreement, the developer must have obtained the building permit, including permission for all reserved questions. The building permit will generally include an indicative ordinance of the roads to be adopted. The assumption is that the highway authority agrees to maintain the road at a public expense from an agreed date. The agreement between the motorway authority and the promoter is called the agreement section 38. A developer may complete the construction of a road and then propose to the Highway Authority in accordance with Section 37 of the Highways Act 1980, but the S38 is more desirable because the Commission does not have the authority to insist that a road meet an authorized standard or that it is then proposed for adoption. However, if an S38 agreement is reached before construction begins, the City Council can ensure that it is built, lit and drained to the appropriate standards. Copies of the above agreements are managed by LGSS Law (Northamptonshire Highways` legal service providers). A Section 38 (or S38) agreement is a section of the 1980 Highway that can be used when a developer proposes the construction of a new road for residential, industrial or general transportation, which can be proposed to the road authority for adoption as a public highway. A loan under the Scottish Road Agreement is a financial guarantee granted by a Bondsman to the Scottish Local Authority before it can start work on residential construction. This obligation is only waived if the local authorities are satisfied that a new highway has been built to acceptable standards or if an agreement is reached in accordance with Section 38, in which case the link is often delegated as a partner. This guarantee loan guarantees the Scottish local authority that the road will be completed to an authorized standard.

It is supported by a loan or cash deposit, calculated by the motorway authority, on the basis of the proposed work.
This loan or cash deposit can be used if the developer goes into liquidation or if he otherwise complies with his obligations. What is a Section 38 agreement? Section 38 Agreements are "highway bonds," as requested by local authorities. Including Irish Scottish equivalents. Section 38 is established between the proponent and the board or the relevant authority to ensure the completion and adoption of a new road development system. The agreement is voluntary and between a developer and the Council. The proponent undertakes to bind the loan or to put cash security on the value of the road works and covers this roadway until the end of the deadline for obtaining defects and issuing the final certificate by the Council at the time of adoption. Bond`s risk ends there. The value is generally sufficient to ensure that the Council can build/repair the road if the developer does not. An inability to develop to meet the standards agreed under the Scottish Road Agreement will allow the Scottish local authority to obtain a sum of money from the bondholder (who claims the loan) needed to finance the completion or rectification of the road.
