It is becoming more common for larger development companies to have a management company which will take care of any public open space or communal areas regardless if the properties are freehold or leasehold.

CML stands for council of mortgage lenders. A CML certificate is required on all new build properties for lenders to lend this document gives them comfort that the property is covered by an appropriate warranty scheme or professional consultants certificate.

What is a Build guarantee?

A CML is not achievable without having a Build Guarantee in place. A Build Guarantee is a certificate issued by either a specialist insurance company or architects or specialists consultant who guarantees the works carried out for a period of time, some of these providers are NHBC, LABC, build zone, Zurich premier guarantee and building warranty, there are many suppliers available to the market, and our warranty should be put in place before you start any build.

How do I find or sell land?

At Complete, we have many years of experience in acquiring and disposing of development land.

What is the best way of appraising a potential development site?

There are many ways to appraise potential opportunities, but fundamentally an appraisal needs to produce a net return after all costs. At Complete, when we appraise any opportunity, we always consider Gross development value (GDV), rental yields and investment potential. We have built our own state-of-the-art appraisal process, which we are happy to share with customers ensuring the opportunity is right for them. Under new planning legislation, more local authorities are encouraging and in some instances insisting on significant developments that custom or self-build pots are being provided.

What is a custom build plot?

A custom build plot is bought by a self-builder but with a custom-build contract built into the transaction.

What is a self-build plot?

A self-build, the plot is bought and developed by the self-builder themselves. Having acquired and deposed many self and custom-built plots we would be delighted to advise on all areas relating to either of the above.
