Here are five reasons to sell your land to us.

Sustainability champions

Sustainability Champions

For us, buying land and realising its development potential is about so much more than profit.

Like many of the landowners we deal with, we have a passion for the environment and really do care about getting things right rather than simply ticking a box.

The fact is, housing is desperately needed, but building residential developments doesn’t have to have a detrimental impact on the local ecosystem.

We believe sustainable and purpose-led development is the solution to the UK affordable housing crisis.

Project success rate

Often, land gets sold but sits untouched for years – or even indefinitely – for a variety of reasons. And while most landowners want the best price for their land, they generally have an interest in seeing the land put to the best use.

An abandoned site can be an eyesore or even pose a health or environmental hazard if fly tipping becomes commonplace.

Our sister company, Collaborate Living, has a proven success rate for seeing projects through to completion for the benefit of landowners, local communities, and the surrounding environment.

Unlocking the potential of land

A land sale is a delicate balance between getting the best sale price for you, the landowner, and unlocking the potential of the land.

Our team conducts a series of complex and thorough assessments to understand how a piece of land should best be used to benefit all stakeholders, from local residents to local wildlife, as well as avoiding any potential risks.

This means that, as a vendor, you have the reassurance your land will be used in the right way to make a positive contribution to individuals, communities, society as a whole and the environment too.

Plus, as we’re well-connected and have a good reputation in the property development industry, we’re able to assemble the right team of contractors and project partners to ensure developments run smoothly and meet deadlines.
