Strategic Land

Strategic LandStrategic Land is an asset which has development potential but requires promotion, management and investment in order for the potential to be realised - whether in the short, medium or long term, with the timing often dictated by the continually evolving planning system. The ever changing planning system means the demands of land promotion and the associated financial / time commitment is a complex process. We regularly assist our Clients to select the most appropriate deal structure and exit strategy to suite their requirements, often working with other retained advisors, including planning landlords, solicitors & accountants.

Agency Transactional Focus

As market facing land agents, we deal in the sale and acquisition of residential development land on both brown and greenfield sites and have an in-depth knowledge of the residential land sector. We regularly sell land to the regional and national house builders & property companies across the South of England.

We specialise in the disposal of land with and without planning permission.  We regularly take on instructions where we work from the outset with landowners and their other retained professional advisors to ensure the optimum disposal strategy is employed and implemented.  Our objective in securing the optimum outcome for the landowner, whether it be subject to planning, or procurement of a planning consent to dispose on an unconditional basis, or via a variety of hybrid arrangements. We remain the principle point of contact between the Landowner & Developer, resolving problems and reducing unnecessary delays, our consultative approach ensures fewer challenges during at the later stages of negotiations.  Many projects takes months and sometimes even years, to come to fruition.  We are in it for the long term.

Conditional Contracts / Options / Hybrid Promotional Agreements / Joint Ventures

The selection of an appropriate deal structure to suit each client’s different financial and commercial circumstances and aspirations is the first imperative of any instruction. We regularly advise on and negotiate the optimum commercial terms to suit each individual clients requirements. We work closely with solicitors and tax advisors to optimise each instruction and we remain involved to the point of completion.

Development Appraisals

DevelopmentThrough the use of industry standard sophisticated professional software as well as our experience of valuing hundreds of millions of pounds worth of land annually, we have a clear market facing insight to current land values.  We can undertake valuation of land to assist with a variety of objectives, including: pre-marketing guide pricing, price determinations, "Red Book" valuations, viability studies, feasibilities etc.

Land Evaluation/ Feasibility Studies
