If you think that the process of selling land is complicated, think again – it doesn’t have to be. One of the key aspects is the engagement a vendor has with their estate agent or consultant.
A scattergun approach, by merely sending details of your land to every agent, developer and housebuilder is less likely to result in a positive outcome; as these potential buyers may be cautious about committing their time and resources of looking at your land’s potential. What they are typically looking for are reliable and qualified land investment opportunities.
The best initial approach is a selective one. At Pygott & Crone we know the best people to work with based on our years of experience within the local authories of the East Midlands, and with high quality house builders. Our Land and New Homes team will provide you with a free and thorough assessment without obligation. They will go through all of your options detailing the relative benefits of each.
You may already know that the value of any piece of land significantly increases if it has obtained planning permission. However you may not be aware of the costs and outlay required to obtain planning permission for land development. The investment in architects, planning consultants, ecology surveys and reports, CIL payments, Section 106 obligations through to finance and planning fees can soon add up.
There are risks that the developer must bear the cost of when developing land, so this must be factored in when the landowner values their land. We will help you strike the right deal. As a landowner you are in the driving seat, but you only get one chance to achieve the best terms and profit. Work with Pygott & Crone to ensure that your interests are protected.
