You shouldn’t have to risk your life savings to find out whether your land is worth selling
When land sits outside of settlement boundaries, understanding development potential isn’t so straightforward. Physical attributes of your site and the condition of the sub structure, could render your land unsuitable for certain projects or significantly increase build costs. Here’s the hitch, getting clarity on your land’s true value takes time and specialist expertise that inevitably comes, frustratingly, at a cost that many landowners don’t have at their disposal. That’s where we come in.
“The team at Searls Land, in particular Sam Dutton and Dan Acutt, provided a professional, transparent and personal service throughout. We always believed our land had some development potential but it wasn’t until Sam approached us, advised us on the most appropriate agreement to pursue and then helped us to secure the right promotion partner, that things really started happening. Two years later we had a planning consent and once again, guided by the Searls Land team we were able to secure a sale to a housebuilder at a price we never would have even dreamed of when we first started all of this. We have since recommended Searls Land to a number of our friends and contacts in the farming community and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone else!”
We’re here to help you avoid the pitfalls
The planning landscape is constantly evolving. When land has unknown potential, the possibility of gaining consent can take significantly longer and require expert insight to achieve. As a landowner you could be faced with multiple offers, citing varying terms, spanning different time periods.
