We help scores of homeowners do just this in all sorts of innovative and sensitive ways – with amazing, attractive results. Plus, selling a section of the land that your property sits on can often free- up a life changing sum.
You may not be aware that, if your plot’s too small, you can get together with one or more neighbours and create what’s known as a ‘land assembly’ and, typically, the bigger the site, the more appealing it will be to developers.
Your garden development checklist:
You must own the freehold
Conservation areas can present challenges in some instances
If the garden is large enough, listed building status may not be an issue
Corner sites are particularly sought after
Is access difficult to envision? We can often suggest new solutions
Large trees often add to a site’s appeal
It’s the planners, not your neighbours, who will decide
Check your local plan for valuable insight
If this is something you’re curious about, we can provide you with a completely safe, socially distant, no obligation consultation that includes a valuation based on the land as it stands today - and what the development could be worth tomorrow.
