Who we are….
Alban Homes are a St Albans based company that specialises in land & planning facilitation on both residential and commercial sites.
Our agents are local and have extensive knowledge of the area, including schools, local amenities and present and future transport links, offering you the best advice available. We have a diverse background in estate agency and come with over ten years of history working for most of the top estate agents throughout the country, we also have an in house planning team that have over 30 years of experience locally.
Our team, are professionally trained, obtaining City & Guilds qualifications, making sure that they are compliant with all of the regulations that agents must adhere to, along with being regulated by the property Ombudsman and fully insured as a company, giving you that extra peace of mind.
What we do….
We spend hours of our time looking to re-develop previously used sites and buildings, often referred to as “Brownfield land” or commercial sites as part of the new property development process.
We feel it is paramount to ensure you hire the correct professional for the project as the planning side is not a protected profession, anyone, from architects and surveyors to home improvement companies will claim they are an”expert” and offer planning services, totally miss-selling the fact they can get you what you want, often resulting in tarnishing a potential future development site and leaving you out of pocket with a site that is unusable.
Once a site has been identified, we can recommend the most suitable type of development within existing planning guidelines. We can work with the landowner to progress the project through to a planning approval and then introduce the site to our comprehensive database of builders and developers – this ranges from small local companies right through to all the major national house builders.
What we offer….
With over a decade of past experience we understand that the planning process can be a very stressful and time consuming process.
We offer to help you from start to finish by attending and documenting every meeting, following up with feedback, negotiating your offers and vetting your potential planning
If our clients do not wish to go through the planning process themselves, we can offer a trusted partner who can fund the planning process and use an option to buy the site once planning has been obtained, this is known as a joint venture.
We have a full range of services and can help you throughout the whole process, from planning, right through to building or progressing your sale, the way through ensuring that you also have an understanding where you are in the transaction.
In addition, some developers have dormant sites that they haven’t the time to develop, we also offer a confidential site sales service.
If you feel you have a site or plot that you feel has future potential development, or you just don’t know where to start please call us on 01727 807000
We have the experienced people on hand to help you.
