Land Development

About Us

Curchods Land Department exists to provide expert advice to those who own land and property where there may be the possibility of development or re-development. In order to ensure that we can offer the correct advice to our clients wishing to maximise the potential of such development sites, we have our own team of development specialists.

Here in the South East, the available opportunities for re-development diminish every day, placing a greater pressure on demand for available land and thus a greater value. With the dynamics of the property market over the last 10 years, it is now a fact that many properties are worth more in re-development terms than as single residences, so receiving expert advice to establish this is vital.

Unless one is a property professional and in the business daily, it would be difficult to know precisely what potential for development or added value a site may have. This is especially true where the creation of a development may involve more than one parcel of land. Our land experts have created many development sites recently by 'piecing together' neighbouring properties and parcels of land.

Market Comment January 2017

Curchods have seen 2017 start on a positive note with exceptionally high levels of both buyers and sellers entering the marketplace in January.

The number of property valuations we’ve carried out for sellers thinking of coming to the market, has been high for this time of year and as a result January saw us secure our most new instructions of any month this financial year in the month of January.

Better news still, we have achieved our best sales levels this financial year in January, which is also up 27% year on year from 2016! Landlords can also take comfort in the strength of the lettings market, which... read more

Will a loft conversion add value to my property?

We are frequently asked if adding a loft conversion to a property will increase value. The simple answer to that question is yes, adding extra floor space will increase the value.

However, before you rush off to clear the attic and call the builders, there are a number of factors to take into consideration:

  • Will the cost of the work be proportionate to the increase in value? Will the accommodation be balanced?
  • Do the number of bedrooms outweigh usable reception space?
  • Will it make the house too large for its plot or location?
  • Will the addition of the staircase involve losing or diminishing the size of an existing room?
  • Will the extra... read more
