Sourcing Land

We're one of the South's leading residential development consultants. Since 1990 we've secured on average 1,000 plots per annum for developer clients, working in the main on Strategic Land Promotion and identifying Brownfield sites within settlement opportunities.

We work with all the major development companies on acquisition and disposal; our clients include Land Speculators, Charitable Trusts, together with private and public landowners, including County Councils.

In general terms there is no simple land transaction. We deal with Restrictive Covenants, servicing of sites, Highway Access, Method Statements and Archaeology. In recent years overcoming Ecology issues has become prevalent – this sometimes includes ‘rehousing' or relocating certain species and providing dog-walking areas ...

Our services to secure a purchaser include:

  • Following market trends, and keeping in touch with all our clients on a regular basis
  • Identifying development companies, ascertaining their current requirement for land, and assessing their decision-making process and their commitment to proceed
  • Preparing Heads of Terms, instructing the relevant solicitors and monitoring progress to a successful completion

We conduct market appraisals and source land in East & West Sussex, Kent, Surrey, South London, Dorset and Wiltshire.

Direct Contact with Landowners – as well as direct contact with Landowners, we also source land from:

Estate Agents, who occasionally have building land available, ie properties on large plots of land, or properties needing refurbishment/rebuild. Our High Street Agency, Callaways Estate & Lettings Agents has established contacts within the building trades, property developers and investment clients for this purpose.

Advertisements – our Land Team keeps a watchful eye on newspapers, trade journals, and word-of-mouth for any potential land sale opportunities.

If you have land for sale and would like a free-of-charge marketing appraisal, please call our Land Team on 01903-695952 of email land@rwhilder.co.uk.
