There have not been nearly enough new homes built for decades which has resulted in a national shortage of new homes. The Government aims to build one million new homes in the next 5 years.
The economic crash devastated the SME sector of the housing market and it is reported that there are fewer than 3000 small builders currently active in the market. The Government is keen to encourage SME’s back to the market and have introduced a number of funding packages to help with acquisition of land and development costs.
The HCA is the government agency to contact regarding funding opportunities. Their advisers are on hand to guide you through the funding process https://www.gov.uk/hca
At Ryder & Dutton we can help with the buying and selling of development land irrespective of its size or planning status. We can advise on the viability of a plot and work with you to bring a scheme to the market that matches the ever changing needs of the buyer including advice on house designs and internal layouts.
We work with a large number of local house builders who are actively building and on the look out for their next site. We have a database of clients who build anything from a couple of houses up to 100 houses.
We can advise on the best route to market your land and for sites that do not have planning we can put you in contact with architects and planning consultants who are likely to be familiar with various local planning authorities and design a scheme that maximises the potential of your land.
If you have a piece of land that is suitable for residential development and would like to talk to us confidentially please contact our Land and New Homes team who will be happy to help.
