Leading Independent Development Surveyors

Established in 1984 Alder Land has for the last 4 decades been active in most sectors of the property market.

For the last 15 years we have moved to specialising in residential focused schemes and our area of activity is London and the Southeast around the M25.

Over the years we have sold and acquired numerous sites for commercial and residential development.

That’s sums up what we do, Identifying Potential and Release Maximum Value of your land or the site you have your eye on (from Possibility to Realisation).

Alder Land activities include:

  • Sale of land for Property Owners
  • Provision of Development Consultancy including Planning Advice
  • Acquisition of land for development
  • Identification of off and on market Development Opportunities
  • Negotiation of Site Assembly transactions
  • Strategic Land – Options and Land Promotion Agreements
  • Regular Housing – C3
  • Sheltered Housing and Care Home developments – C2
  • We will also deal with any associated commercial development requirements either directly or with consultants.

Creating a deal on the best possible terms takes imagination, expertise and a finger on the pulse of the market. We are immersed in the market on a daily basis, we are at the “coalface” making it happen.

Open Market Housing and Care Homes

We specialise in arranging Land Deals for the Residential, Sheltered and Care Home Sectors including Strategic Land.

We work with many of the leading national and local residential developers as well as prominent operators in the Care Home and Sheltered sectors.

We also act for Land Owners and provide advice on value, planning issues and other related matters.

We build strong relations with our clients and constantly seek to maintain the highest level of service for our friends in the property industry.

Land & Development

We don’t just know where the land is and what it’s worth, we know the people who will shape and control its future. We have well established contacts with local politicians including leaders of many councils as well as planning officers. Our contacts with developers range from the boardroom to the land team on the ground.

Extensive links with corporates and agents nationwide help us find sites that offer the right opportunities for development, with the greatest potential to add value. But most importantly, we have an extensive knowledge of how the “land lies” on our patch plus a significant database of potential sites/development opportunities.

We work with a wide spread of clients including Institutions, the leading UK house builders, local residential developers, government agencies, local authorities, private landowners, charities etc. We have an outstanding understanding of the land market and developers’ requirements. This means we can help focus ideas to maximise the value of any development proposal.
