Selling your Land or Garden
As quickly as we are obtaining our sites, they are selling, which is why we need more land! We will consider land or gardens with or without planning permission. We have had lots of experience in the buying clients private land. It would enable you to get a cash injection and release equity in the land that maybe going to waste.
If this is of interest to you please fill in the form on the right and someone will be in contact shortly. Please don't worry about a "pressure sell", it's a no obligation discussion to see if your land or garden has development potential.
We wouldn’t expect you to sell your land without questions. We’re here to help and provide open and honest advice. If you would like to talk to us call us now without obligation on 07796955672.
How do I know if my land is suitable for development?
Our specialist land acquisition consultants are experienced at identifying gardens with potential, and will be able to assess the land on their first visit to your property.
If I sell my land to you, will I have to pay extra taxes on my profit such as Capital Gains?
At present, in most cases your profit is tax free for any development involving your Private Principal Dwelling (PPD), however Capital Gains Tax may apply if you are selling part of a property that you don’t live in. There are strong rumours that a land tax of up to 40% could be applicable to homeowners selling private land at some point in the near future. Please check our news pages regularly for updates on tax liabilities when and if they happen. Arnold Developments would strongly advise anyone thinking of selling land to act quickly to reap the full rewards of a cash windfall.
I'm worried you will pressure sell to me?
There is no need to worry; all we want to do is provide you with good, honest and open advice. We don’t pressurise, we want you to walk away from our partnership feeling good about your decision and maybe even to recommend us to your friends. However, if you are still unsure, ask yourself the following questions. ‘Do I use all of my garden all of the time?’, ‘Is a large garden as important to me now as it was when I first bought my home?’, ‘Would a large cash windfall give me the freedom to turn my dreams into reality?’. Whatever you decide, we will respect your wishes at every stage and will not make any decisions without your consent.
Will I de-value my property by selling off my land?
We will work with you to develop a scheme that will sit alongside your property with minimum impact, so it is very unlikely that you will lose value. Modern lifestyles have created a trend for properties with low maintenance gardens. These days most people lead such busy lives that they have little time to manage a large plot, and it can be a disadvantage for some house hunters. This is one of the reasons why many newly built homes with smaller gardens sell for such a high premium.
How do I know that you won’t build an eye sore at the bottom of my garden?
We take a collaborative approach to developing land, and always work in partnership with the landowner right up until detailed planning permission is obtained. This means that you will be able to agree the type of scheme planned for your land before making a commitment to sell. We can even put you in touch with garden designers to help you make the best use of your remaining garden so that you can continue to enjoy it for years to come.
How quickly will I be able to receive an offer for my land?
A formal offer will be made for your land once we have researched the site and established potential for planning permission. This will normally take place within two weeks of our first meeting but can vary from development to development.
When will I receive my cash?
We purchase your land once we have obtained planning permission, and before building commences. No work will start until the transaction is complete and the land is securely fenced off.
