Fees & Commissions


Everyone Can Benefit!

The main purpose of Woodhouse Associates is to deliver professional support services to owners, developers and builders of timber frame properties in the UK and overseas.

However, all of our services, including property sales and listings, are available for all other types of buildings.

This page sets out a selection of these services and an indication of the fees & commissions – if any – that we charge.

If in doubt, or if you have a special situation with which you would like assistance, please ‘phone for clarification and/or more information.

Free Listing of Land for Sale

If you wish to list a building plot, site or land for sale, there is no charge, but please use the standard listing form.

Woodhouse Associates’ support services include building design, timber frame manufacture, project management, etc. for developers, house-builders and self-builders.

Because many of them are looking for appropriate building plots and sites throughout the UK and overseas, we provide a Free Listing Service for owners of land with, or suitable for obtaining planning permission. .

Land owners, agents and land scouts are invited to submit full details of land for sale to be included in our widely accessed website using the standard listing form provided.

Site Finder’s Fees are protected –  see details

Site Finding Services

The UK government has announced its intentions to boost the output of new homes via the Self Build sector.

At the same time, more and more people are moving away from the UK to France, Spain, Italy and other ‘sunbelt’ countries, maybe for a new career or retirement.

In all cases they have one thing in common – the need for somewhere to live and, very often, the land to build it on.

Woodhouse Associates’ national and international coverage gives us a distinctive ‘edge’ in helping you to find the development land or building plot that you are looking for.

Individuals and small house-building firms can now take advantage of the same Land Scout site finding services that large national volume house- builders and other developers use to save huge amounts of time and money.

Our fees for this are usually commission based, starting at around 2% of the eventual purchase price in the UK, with a minimum of £1,500.  Overseas they can be a bit higher, depending on individual country conditions, legislation and your requirements..
