Selling Your Plot of Land | McEwan Fraser Legal

Selling your plot of land

Sell your land with McEwan Fraser Legal

When it comes to selling land, we know how to achieve the maximum value for our clients. Don't be tempted to sell "Off Market" to a developer until you have spoken to one of our land experts.

We can provide you with a no obligation independent valuation, and advise on legal agreements to allow you to profit while developers seek planning permission particularly when any offers are subject to planning. Sometime offers are subject to unrealistic planning approval, which means attractive initial offers are subsequently reduced.

We work with a broad range of individuals and organisations wishing to assess the value of large or small land plots, with or without planning, as well as some of the UK’s leading developers in order to provide them with high-quality land appraisals according to their requirements. We also have an experienced legal team and can draft option agreements to suit individual circumstances.

What is involved in selling land?

We focus on optimising value by working with our trusted partners and help secure planning consents on potential residential development land. Our in-depth knowledge of the complex planning regulations makes us the ideal company for landowners keen to promote and maximise their land’s potential to the open market. We can of course also work “off market” with carefully targeted and qualified developers where land owners want confidentiality. Through local knowledge and research of local authority’s housing land supply we are able to identify and promote sites that are suitable and have good prospects for housing development.

Once planning has been secured, we work to achieve the maximum value by offering the land for sale to a large number of house builders and developers. This enables us to create competitive bidding scenarios – you the landowner are then safe in the knowledge that we have secured the true value of your asset.

If you have a plot of land for sale, or if you own a house with a large garden or vacant ground that you believe may be suitable for redevelopment, gives us a call and we will let you know all your options.
