Developing

Property development is an essential arm of our business and represents yet another excellent opportunity for our investors. At LDP we believe that for any development undertaking to be successful, it has to meet our stringent tests of viability. We therefore place heavy emphasis and research into the location as well as understanding the exact type of property you want to get into. Above all we determine the extent of demand for either purchasing or renting in a given area.

As experienced developers ourselves, we are not short on expertise to help you work out the cost implications of refurbishing a property. We can accurately project manage the entire process for your convenience. Herein lies the wonderful opportunity to engage in a joint venture with LDP where we provide the vital expertise on top of your personal financial commitment. In such a scenario we usually have our own solicitor draw up the paperwork, whose services you are welcome to use for yourself. Or if you so wish you can appoint a solicitor of your choosing.

As a rule we always make sure we have set in place at least two exit strategies before taking the plunge or even deciding to acquire a particular property. This approach provides the much needed layer of protection to you as well as ourselves, inside each of the following four key development areas we specialise in.

Frequently Asked Questions

Residential Refurbishment for flip (put back onto the market)

If current political and economic trends are anything to go on, now is the best time to seek out Below Market Value or BMV deals. Investors who partner with LDP soon realise the enormous value to be had in securing such in-demand properties before anyone else. The goal is to renovate them to a high standard, and then sell them off for healthy profits. Along with working closely with Estate and Letting Agents who help us rapidly discover the best off-market property opportunities, we find dealing directly with vendors offers us the best deals whilst also offering savings to the vendor on estate agent fees.

This ongoing marketing strategy help us to find and work directly with property vendors. It also makes it easy for us to help owners who are hard pressed to make an urgent sale. I will personally target landlords who are looking to leave the market and need a guaranteed exit over a period of time.

Our highly motivated teams always work under close supervision. They know what it takes to finish on time and how to work responsibly within budget limits. Additionally, we only work with experienced professionally accredited tradespeople.

Buy to let (buy and hold for rental income)

There is still a huge demand for good quality rental properties throughout the UK and specifically in our chosen investment areas. We believe very strongly that the best tenants are those who are carefully matched to the type of property suitable for them to rent. Middle income families are therefore best placed in housing that they can afford regularly over the long term. We therefore only advise purchasing properties where we have established actual demand in the chosen rental market exists in the area.

We advise that all the properties are refurbished to a standard appropriate to the chosen rental market, are fully compliant with all lettings regulations, and are managed by professional agents. Our maintenance teams ensure the ongoing operations of the portfolio.

In the UK we are experiencing a tremendous shortage of affordable housing. Currently there is an estimated shortfall of approximately 240,000 such housing units. Also, with stringent restrictions on borrowing to buy residential property, more people have little choice but to continue renting for longer. We will soon see the average age for first time buyers rise to 40 years. The growth of “Generation Rent” is projected to mean that one in four households in the UK will be renting by 2025.

HMO – House of Multiple Occupation (buy and hold for larger rental income)

In certain areas, the demand for ‘Room Only’ lets is very high. We have worked with builders, letting agents and Local Councils with the aim to deliver quality rooms to the market, in order to maximise the returns of the building and utilising space.

We will target professional workers, contractors and students along with migrants who are new to the country and are looking for their first accommodation in the UK.

We will ensure that all properties meet relevant legislation, are properly licensed, meet the required safety, planning & building control criteria, and are managed pro-actively.

We aim to raise the standard of these properties in the chosen areas and deliver a quality product to our tenants.

Commercial / Mixed Use development

(can be for either buy and sell or hold)

The introduction of the new stamp duty in the residential market has led to increased purchase pricing. Therefore we see a huge opportunity in taking over properties previously reserved to the commercial sector. These can be repurposed through the correct planning process and converted for use into residential units.

Working in areas where there is a shortage of stock, we will be focusing on purchasing old offices, pubs, restaurants, clubs and council buildings that can be afforded change of use.
