SJD Projects is a specialist land consultancy dealing with the sale and acquisition of development sites across the South of England. We act for vendors looking to sell sites ‘off market’ and for buyers looking to acquire sites not openly available. We deal with all sites and development opportunities ranging in size from single plots and houses to mixed use and major regeneration projects.
A typical example where we have been able to assist sellers was a mixed use site near Tunbridge Wells where the property was not suitable for estate agents to deal with, especially as the owners did not want to pay a fee. They had considered auction but knew that the price they were likely to achieve would be much lower than we would secure for them and this proved to be the case with a number of developers making offers both subject to planning and unconditionally.
In another instance when we acted for the buyer, we were instructed to acquire a site in Muswell Hill, North London for 3 detached houses which was on the market with other agents. There were already offers on the table and the seller was proving to be difficult as the market was slowly rising as was his ambitions on price. After several lengthy meetings and putting forward a proposal which was designed to come from a different angle with an uplift clause and an overage we secured the purchase which proceeded quickly to a satisfactory conclusion for both buyer and seller.
Quite often the most straight forward deal is one where we have been instructed on an existing property which needs to be renovated or replaced and have found a cash buyer who completes quickly without the need for surveys and internal inspections, quickly and efficiently.
