If you’ve been left land or property as an inheritance, you’re likely to be planning to sell it on once probate has been completed. More often than not, property sold through probate fails to achieve its full market value. Luckily, here at Albright Dene, we can offer a solution to enable you to gain the maximum financial settlement from your inheritance.
By utilising our services – at no upfront cost or risk to you – we can quickly and easily evaluate the inherited estate and advise you how we can work together to add value by gaining a planning consent.
HOW IT WORKS
- We will carry out an initial appraisal of the estate, focusing on identifying a plan for future development that will maximise the property’s potential whilst adhering with local planning policy.
- We will pay for and manage the entire planning application process at our risk. Each and every project we take on is allocated a dedicated team, including a project manager, senior planner, architect, highways engineer, arboriculturist, ecologist and civil engineer.
- Once planning consent is granted, we move onto the next stage – to realise the value added by the planning permission.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
We appreciate that it can often be a difficult and challenging time whilst probate is being completed and the process itself can take several months, especially when land and/or property are involved. Our timescales for undertaking the above work and acquiring a planning consent can often be achieved within the time it takes to complete the legal probate process, enabling you to add significant value to your inheritance without losing time or money in the process. And you can rest assured that we will always handle these matters with the utmost sensitivity.
AN ADDED BENEFIT
By working with Albright Dene, you’ll also be helping orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi to have safe, clean new homes built for them. For every three properties we gain planning consent for here in England, we’ve teamed up with the charity Habitat for Humanity to build a new home in the remote communities of Salima and Mulanje. Already this year, we’ve committed to fund 22 new homes.
