Secure a buyer you can rely on

Helping landowners by sourcing promoters and buyers who can be trusted to gain planning consent and deliver on a sale as promised

Maximise the value of your land

Set the terms that work for you

Have confidence you’ll complete

The ‘best’ deal is the one that makes it over the line

Sites with potential for planning often attract multiple offers, sometimes varying significantly in value. Without experience in the property development sector it can be hard to differentiate between what’s a persuasive sales tactic and a genuinely promising offer for your site. The problem is, the stakes are high. No one wants their land blighted by planning refusal or a buyer bailing out on their offer in the eleventh hour. We’re here to help you avoid this.

Get a buyer you can trust

We have worked extensively with a range of buyers and promoters across the south who have the capability and expertise to deliver as promised when an agreement is reached.

Stay in control of the sale

What you want out of your land sale matters -  that’s why we agree a full marketing strategy with you and outline ideal terms to secure an agreement you can be 100% happy with.

Maximise your return

We only select buyers and promoters with a strong track record of gaining planning consent so you can unlock capital early with a signing fee and be confident you’ll enjoy a great return.

We’re here to help you avoid the pitfalls


The planning landscape is complex, with ever moving goalposts. Gaining consent on a site – particularly one with complications - takes experience and expert insight. At Searls Land we help landowners find committed buyers who understand how to maximise the value of your land with considerate plans that will win the seal of approval from local authorities. Our land agents will help you:

Ensure the terms of the sale that matter most to you are included

Deliver multiple propositions for you to consider

Where possible, secure a signing fee to release capital to you early

Agree a satisfactory delivery schedule to help you plan ahead

Where terms are agreed, more than 98% of our sales and acquisitions complete – because we know who, how and when to place your proposition in front of the people who will offer best value – and be in a position to see it through.

Land with
planning consent

We identify buyers who will respect what matters most to you and be capable of completing the sale as agreed. We draw on our vast network of housebuilders and promoters to match your priorities with theirs in order to negotiate optimum terms for you.
