Delivering Value for your Land

As a land or property owner, you appreciate that you possess a valuable asset. But are you aware of all the development opportunities available to you? If you have already applied for planning consent with a view toward selling, did you know that there are many lucrative options open to you that are often overlooked? Put simply, your land could be worth more than you think. We are specialists in providing land owners like you with unrivalled insight and intelligence and on introducing you to trusted property buyers and local specialists.

We specialise in helping land owners navigate the many pitfalls that can occur when assessing a valued site. Plus, we have the expertise and experience of dealing with a range of national, regional and local house builders, so if you are thinking of selling, we can often introduce you to a serious buyer.

What types of sites are of interest?

Currently many types and sizes of land are in demand – from uniquely shaped parcels that often suit bespoke properties in densely populated areas to large open plots more suited to mixed use developments. Gardens, office buildings and commercial properties are also all desirable types.

“Brownfield”, “greenfield” and strategic land all have potential for any number of prospective uses, from residential housing and care homes to retirement developments and affordable housing.

We are sensitive to the needs of those thinking of selling land in close proximity to their homes and neighbours. So we will work in partnership with you, carry out community consultations when necessary and clearly explain the process to help you achieve the level of planning consent you require to secure a sale.

We are adept at adding value for our clients at any stage of the process.  Submitted planning? Awaiting a decision? Been refused? Consented? We can help.

What part does planning consent play?

Land tends to be offered in one of three ways.

  1. With planning consent.
  2. Without planning consent.
  3. Subject to planning consent.

When a piece of land is sold subject to planning consent, the interested buyer will agree to buy the site and exchange contracts as long as they are able to secure the planning consent they need to develop on the land. This agreement will be covered by what is known as either an option or conditional contract. It then becomes the buyer’s responsibility to submit the planning application at their own cost and most importantly, when the planning consent is granted, the sale will be completed. While selling a site in this manner has risks and can be protracted in a lengthy process, It is by no means insurmountable.

It is not uncommon to be baffled by the terminology and processes involved in planning consent so please get in touch with us if you have any questions about it. We have deep knowledge of the land and property development industry and the parties involved that enables us to offer unrivalled advice and insight.

With our help, you can achieve the best possible price with the least possible fuss.
