All property development and investment sectors are of interest, in particular we’re looking for residential development land, student accommodation, co-living, build to rent / PRS, city centre regeneration, city and suburban retail, industrial, warehouse, and roadside A3.

We don’t mind if the property doesn’t have planning permission. In fact, we often prefer to create our own schemes or find ways to enhance or change an existing planning permission.

We have an excellent design and development team that has an enviable track record of creating value where others see problems.

We do not rely on bank finance, and usually buy properties subject only to legal searches so that you can receive quick payment on completion.

Introduction fees are available for opportunities that we are not aware of.

Development Sites

We urgently need land and buildings which are suitable for development.

Greenfield or brownfield sites are equally attractive to us.

We love city centres, university campuses, suburbs and former pit villages.

We will consider sites with or without planning permission.

Yields will normally be in excess of 8% outside London and over 6% within the M25.

Exceptional properties are always of interest regardless of the yield, price, or location.
