UKLI - Strategic Land Acquisition

March 25, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Once the opportunity to purchase land was only open to professional property developers and the larger building firms but UKLI (UK Land Investments Group)has changed that forever. They have pioneered a new and simple way for individuals to buy and possibly gain outline planning permission for future development.

Essentially, UKLI removes much of the complexity of buying land, by identifying prime pieces of land using the strategic land acquisition team made up, in part, of former Directors from some of the UKís biggest housebuilders.

The company has just released a fourth phase of itís highly sought after site in Borehamwood, North London and Hertfordshire. UKLI believes that this is a site with very good potential.

Brian Smith, UKLI Groupís Strategic Land Director, who is based at the companyís Head Office in Mayfair, says, ďThe local planning authority within whose area the site is located will be faced with having to make significant provision for additional housing need within the near future in order to meet regional growth requirements. The site in Borehamwood represents a truly sustainable opportunity being located in close proximity to a wide range of local community facilities and public transportĒ

Buying land has proven to be one of the best ways to create real personal wealth over the years. In fact the value of residential land has increased in value by 800% over the past 20 years. None of the traditional investments have demonstrated such consistent growth over the long term.

This trend looks certain to continue for the foreseeable future. Particularly when you consider that approximately 200,000 new homes need to be built every year just to keep up with the demand for new homes in England. With this in mind, itís perhaps hardly surprising that many of the UKís richest people are property developers or landowners.

So why have so few individuals purchased land in the past?

Well, generally itís been due to lack of know-how. For most individuals buying a plot of land, being able to identify, select and buy a site with an excellent chance of being re-allocated into a Local Development Plan is daunting. UKLIís secret is to get the right land where all aspects of the site have been looked into prior to purchase through their strategic land acquisition team, who boast an extensive knowledge base and wealth of expertise in land buying and development having held senior positions with major house builders like :George Wimpey Homes, David Wilson Homes and a number of Local Authority planning departments.

Groupís land consultants are well trained to be able to advise individuals on the best land strategy to suit their personal objectives. The in-house legal and financial departments are able to further assist with all of the legal and financial issues that will enable easy purchase from UK Land Investments
