Find the Land YOU Want


Woodhouse Associates services for finding property for development, building land and individual plots of land come in four forms:-

  • Details of building sites and individual building plots that are advertised on our website.While we make no charge for this, location details of some land may be subject to payment of a commission to the land scout who has found the land.This is the service mainly used by small house builders and self-builders.
  • Regular updates to Registered Buyers. If you have registered your requirements we will send you details of all new sites and individual building plots meeting your specification as they are listed with us.This service is very popular with firms and individuals who are still evaluating the overall costs of developing in a particular locality.
  • General search service for buyers who agree to pay us a small £50 retainer to search out development land for them.We then carry out a trawl of all sites and agents offering land for sale and send them details of anything that meets their registered requirements.This time and cost saving service is of particularly use to developers, house builders, and self-builders who have decided to build within a particular locality.
  • Special, individual ‘seek and find’ Land Scout service that targets a specific location, sifts public records and plans to discover possible development sites that are not on the open market.For this we charge a nominal £250 retainer fee plus a ‘finder’s commission’ if the any site found is bought by our retaining client. This commission is based on a sliding scale between 0.5% and 2.5% depending on the eventual price paid for the land.While smaller house builders and self-builders may find this service of use to them, it is mainly the larger builders and developers who retain us as Land Scouts on this basis.

We  reserve the right

… to offer any sites not bought by our retained client, to our wider markets.

Land Service Enhancement

Any of the above services can be enhanced by the addition of other paid services, like professional valuation, residual land value analysis, site land and ground surveys, environmental and energy surveys, and so on.
