What kind of site are people looking for?
There’s no such thing as a typical site. We can get the best out of small parcels of land.
We know which large open plots might be right for mixed use developments. We’ve seen gardens, office buildings, brownfield and commercial properties all become valuable sites.
We know that sites don’t exist in isolation. Maybe you’re thinking of selling land near your home and neighbours. We will work in partnership with you, carry out community consultations when necessary. We clearly explain the process to help you achieve the level of planning consent you require to secure a sale.
We add 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 play?
Land tends to be offered for certain in one of three ways.
- With planning consent.
- Without planning consent.
- Subject to planning consent
When a piece of land 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. This agreement will be covered by what is known as either an option or conditional contract.
So, it becomes the buyer’s responsibility to submit the planning application at their own cost. Only when - or if - planning consent is granted, the sale will be completed. Selling a site this way has risks, it can take time. But we know how the system works. We’ve helped dozens of people get the results they want.
