Residential Land

We have established ourselves as one of Bury St. Edmunds most regarded residential land agents, with over 2,000 dwellings in the planning process. We have an ever-growing portfolio of strategic housing development sites within Suffolk, Norfolk, and other parts of East Anglia. We continue to act on behalf of landowners seeking to maximise the value of their holdings by assessing development potential and advising on all types of promotion, option, and planning processes with a view to eventual sale for development purposes.

Our residential land services cover a variety of scenarios and needs, with each client receiving a bespoke and tailored service. Our services include:

Land, Property Sales and Promotion Agreements

If land has potential for residential development or has existing planning permission and the landowner is seeking to sell it, then we offer a personal service from start to finish. We are here to guide our clients through the entire process, from the initial decision to sell land right through to exchange and completion.

We act for a wide variety of different landowners, including farmers, family estates, corporations, and private clients. We provide all the advice a client needs in negotiating terms with land promoters and house builders to maximise land potential.

Site Assembly

We will act for one or multiple landowners seeking to promote or sell land and may have the need to combine various parcels of land and legal interests to unlock the full potential of their collective holdings.

We assist in the preparation of consortium agreements, advise on planning prospects, negotiate terms for conditional contracts, options, or promotion agreements, and much more.

Land Acquisition

We offer a first-class land acquisition service that is targeted to make the process work for our clients. We act on behalf of the potential buyer, providing expert advice on opportunities, planning considerations, values, and negotiations, all with a view to securing land at a reasonable price and readying it for the next stage in the development process.

Easements and Ransom Strips

We are here to provide guidance and advice for landowners when approached to sell their land by housing developers or large organisations, including public and statutory services seeking easements or access through or under their land. We act on their behalf to negotiate a market-appropriate price for their land.

We can also identify or help where ransom circumstances arise and provide advice and guidance through what can be a difficult negotiating process.

Valuations and Appraisals

Whether a client already has planning permission or they want to find out whether it is worth promoting their site through the planning system, we provide considered and experience-based valuation advice on residential land as well as recommendations and guidance on how best to proceed.
