As a department, we love the sale of consented development sites! We've been selling them for over 25 years, and in the southern M25 corridor our track record is second to none. We weren't instructed to sell this particular site in Bexleyheath; in fact the seller only held an option; not title to the property. Having secured planning permission for a new block close to the town centre comprising 9 small self-contained apartments, we asked for the opportunity to introduce a retained client. Our New Homes Division had recently sold out a similar project for Kent-based developers Tranquil Homes, and we knew they were looking for another site locally.
Terms were promptly agreed, and an assignment of the option taken by our clients. Completion took place in October 2021, with a site start due in early 2022. We'd always prefer to act for the seller; after all, our expertise is in driving the best possible price. If for any reason we can't be instructed though, we have a long list of buyers happy to pay us a handsome fee to secure the right site for them.
