Land Consultancies and Traders

Land is the lifeblood of any form of development – without land, there would be nothing to build on, and nothing to live in. Buying land can be a very complex and difficult process with the involvement of planning and the planning process. 

Often, developers and housebuilders have internal land departments to identify, appraise, and secure their land – this comes from a variety of sources, agents, landowners, and the council. 

Developers don’t always have access to all available land and as such land traders exist to source opportunities for developer clients, often gaining various planning consents to increase the value and then sell on to developers “oven-ready”. 

These professionals have to be experienced in sourcing land, and also putting them through the planning process, as this is where a lot of value can be added and also provides a service to clients in need of immediate opportunities. 

As the process of buying land can be long and drawn out, some companies use land consultancies to secure and buy various sites, substantially reducing their workload. These consultancies tend to have chartered professionals in both surveying and planning (MRICS, and MRTPI) as these are the two main tenants of a land consultancy.  

There is a lot of crossover in the development role with land and planning professionals as their skills tend to be similar whether working for a consultancy, trader, or developer – this is why our extended property network is so vital to our clients resourcing needs.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dan for the past 3 years. Dan supported and placed me into my first interim role at Ricoh. During my 13 month placement Dan continued to keep contact with me and the client to ensure there were no issues. He has a very personable nature and really understands the importance of building relationships with not just the client but also his candidates. Although my placement finished nearly two years ago we are still in regular contact. He is one of the best recruiters I have had the pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
