Land is an immensely valuable asset, this is something that you’ll already realise and appreciate as a land or property owner but there are a plethora of development opportunities available to you that you may not be aware of. You may have already applied for planning consent with a view to selling, for example, but there are many lucrative options that are regularly overlooked.
We’re specialists in providing unrivalled insight and industry intelligence that can be combined with introducing you to local specialists and trusted property buyers.
We can help you navigate the many pitfalls that can occur when assessing a valued site which, when combined with our network of national, regional, and local housebuilders, provides you with a platform with which we can work together to find a serious buyer and prioritise maximising your return on investment.
What Types of Sites are of Interest?
Currently, there is a demand for a wide range of sizes and shapes in land. Uniquely shaped parcels that would suite bespoke properties in densely populated areas to more open plots that could be used for mixed use developments are particularly desirable, alongside gardens, office buildings and commercial properties.
Brownfield, Greenfield, and Strategic Land all have potential for a myriad of uses – from residential houses and care homes to retirement developments and affordable housing.
We are attuned to the needs of those thinking of selling land in close proximity to their homes and neighbours and so we look upon the project as a partnership. Carrying out community consultations when necessary and clearly explaining the process to help you achieve the level of planning consent you require to secure a sale.
We excel at adding value for our clients at any stage of the process. Submitted planning? Awaiting a decision? Been refused? Consented? We can help you!
What Part Does Planning Play?
Land tends to be offered for sale in one of three ways:
- With planning consent
- Without planning consent
- Subject to planning consent
If the property is sold subject to planning, 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). Therefore, it becomes the buyer’s responsibility to submit the planning application at their own cost and when/or crucially if the planning consent is granted the sale will be completed. While selling a site in this manner has risks and can be protracted a lengthy process It is by no means insurmountable.
It is not uncommon to be baffled by the terminology and processes involved so please do get in touch if you have any questions at all. We have knowledge of the land and property development industry and the parties involved enables us to offer unrivalled advice and insight.
With our help, you can achieve the best possible price with the least possible fuss.
