How we can help landowners?

For many landowners, selling land is a once in a lifetime event and it is therefore vital that you understand what options are available to you, and that you work with an experienced land agent who can help you make an informed decision and maximise land value.

If you are seeking to explore the possibility of selling your land for development, then we can provide you with assistance through every stage of the process. We can also help you navigate the planning system, with support from our planning consultancy,Boyer.

Land holdings, with or without existing planning permission, can be highly attractive to developers. We will work with you and at the appropriate time introduce you to our network of contacts, and help you realise your aspirations.

A guide to selling your land

understand context

Step 1: Understand the planning context

The planning system will determine the development potential of your land, the timeframes, amount of development and ultimately the land value.

disposal option

Step 2: Choose the best disposal option

What works for one landowner may not work for you; everybody has different aspirations and priorities. Therefore taking advice on the different types of deal structure and associated clauses and caveats is vital to ensuring you make the right decision.

manage expectations

Step 3: Manage expectations

The planning system is notoriously fraught with delays and uncertainty, and selling land can take time so be prepared for a potentially lengthy process.

take legal advice

Step 4: Take proper legal and tax advice

The importance of an experienced solicitor who understands development and property should not be underestimated. They are responsible for making sure that any agreement with a developer is watertight and protects your position.

tax advice

Step 5: Take tax advice

Development is generally subject to capital gains tax, so you should take professional tax advice to make sure that the disposal of your land is done efficiently and correctly.
