Lea Hough are involved in projects from pre-planning stages, to those in the planning process, though to sites with existing planning consents.

We can advise landowners at an early stage on the most appropriate course of action, whether that be to preserve, enhance or release the value of their assets.

Lea Hough will ensure the right agreements are pursued in the best interests of the client. Where there is planning risk, these can take the form of an option or a promotion agreement, made between a landowner and a potential purchaser. The site will then be supported through the relevant planning process, followed by an application funded by the purchaser which, if successful, leads to the sale of the land.

Alternatively, Lea Hough will look for ways to deliver sites via conditional contracts, actively seeking and negotiating with purchasers/developers to achieve best value in the most appropriate timeframe.

"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
