Land and New Homes Division Launched

McAndrew Martin are expanding with the launch of a land and new homes division to push forward developments across the south coast.
We will draw on the expertise of The Land Agent South Ltd to assist in the new service for developers and landowners.
The move comes as the housing market and the economy gain momentum with growth upgraded to 2.7 per cent for this year, the extension of Help to Buy and proposals for 200,000 new homes nationwide.
Our Director Ian Lee said: “With an improving economy and housing market, this is the ideal time to start our land and new homes department.
“With Daryn’s knowledge and our expertise, we will be able to identify land and make sure it fulfils its development potential.
“It means there will be an all-inclusive department for landowners, businesses and developers to move projects forward.”
Ian added: “We are excited by the prospects for growth and are looking forward to developing the new venture.”
Although we are based in Portsmouth, we will be targeting land and schemes across the south.
We will bring such expertise as architectural design, surveys, structural engineering and project management.
Daryn Brewer, who is Managing Director of the Land Agent South, will bring his experience to bear in offering advice to landowners and developers on residential, commercial and mixed-used property.
Daryn recently has dealt with acquisitions for a mixed-use site of a former restaurant in Waterlooville, a site proposed for 25 homes in Chichester and land for retirement apartments in Cosham.
Daryn said: “With the changes in Government policy, there has never been a better time for this new initiative.
“We are a terrific fit. McAndrew Martin has 25 years of experience and expertise guiding clients through the development and planning process.
“It means that together we can offer a quality and customer-focused service from conception to completion.”
Growth was upgraded to 2.7 per cent for this year in the Budget and the Help to Buy scheme extended for four more years to 2020. The Budget also included provision for 200,000 new homes.
Nationwide building society estimated that prices rose on average by 1.2 per cent in April compared with the month before and 10.9 per cent on April 2013.
The latest Nationwide indices for the last quarter of 2013 put the average house price in the Portsmouth area at £197,078.
