Those involved with the buying and selling of land will be well aware of how intricate and time consuming the process is.

Planning has become more complex in recent years, and to secure a planning permission requires a combination of intelligence, expertise, experience and sheer determination.  It’s fair to say that no day is the same with constant changes to general planning law, legal considerations, housing demand and supply, as well as local planning legislation keeping us on our toes. Each land transaction is also completely unique requiring a level of experience, knowledge and a bespoke approach for each client. As all of our clients have their own unique objectives, there is no “one-size fits all”.

detailWith so many considerations and factors that are constantly evolving, the devil is truly in the detail, which is where our expert team come into their own.

With so many variables, complications and potential setbacks, you could expect a high percentage of abortive work, but thankfully this is not the case. Why? Because we, and the purchaser we introduce, focus on the fine detail and work diligently to overcome all obstacles. Given the considerable cost both in terms of time, planning and risk, this is probably unsurprising.

We’re particularly demanding when it comes to finding the right developer for the owner; we have a wide network of connections that are reliable, experienced and knowledgable. Working with such high calibre developers, we seldom meet barriers that cannot be overcome. Should a potential issue arise, we can also throw our arsenal of technical expertise at the situation, by having a thorough understanding of the challenges each transaction presents.

With 25 years of experience working in the area, (as well as 73 years of combined agency years within our Land Department), we are able to advise and successfully manage our clients’ requirements.
