Land Acquisition

Completed: January, 1970

Service: Land Agency

Sectors: Mixed Use, Residential

Continuum acted on behalf of a local authority who were offered a large mixed-use site. The local authority had received a purchase price accompanied by Heads of Terms and they instructed Continuum to review all supporting evidence.

Through analysis of the site-specific challenges, terms offered and the local market, Continuum proceeded to advise the client on the value of the site whilst providing a suitable property mix for the residential and employment land. In addition, Continuum provided strategic development advice in relation to the retention and disposal of key assets.
