What We Do

Buying Land is an essential part of our business.  We provide a professional and reliable land acquisition service and if you have land to sell we do our very best to ensure that you have a positive and profitable experience.  It's important in business, that when a deal is done, both parties walk away happy.

We self finance most of our land acquisitions and have a wealth of expertise and experience in buying sites and obtaining planning permissions, so you can rely on us for a smooth sales process.

We have experience of dealing with a variety of sites and are able to develop all kinds of opportunities.  With our in-house expertise and strong relationships with planning authorities we can work closely and appraise ALL possibilities.  

Our approach is highly entrepreneurial and speculative and we have a reputation for being easy to do business with.  For the private landowner with no experience on land sale or value, we can offer flexible structured deals and because we are a privately owned and funded company, we have the distinct advantage; if the project makes commercial sense, nobody can get the deal done quicker than Fairbank.

Some companies initially start with a high overall offer for a piece of land to get the land owner interested & tied into the sale with complex details and clauses, which gradually decreases when it comes to the end figure.  

If your land has planning potential, we will make an offer to enter into an option agreement with you, setting out how we will partner with you to obtain planning permission and to develop your land to its best potential. On many occasions, throughout this process, you can still continue to use your land as it won't effect any planning permission. It is in our interest to optimise the value of your land as we work on a profit share, so we only get paid at the end of the sales process. All fees associated with the planning process are covered by us.

Trusted Partners

Fairbank also buys land in conjunction with our trusted partners.  Together with our partners we are committed to working closely with landowners and local authorities and provide tailored solutions that take into account the needs of the landowner as well as local political, social and environmental factors.


We apply our understanding and knowledge of the local economic and social landscape to clearly identify deficiencies and future demands of local councils and are particularly focused on identifying opportunities and unlocking sites.  

Our experienced team have unparalleled knowledge of land acquisition, planning and developments processes for a wide variety of urban and rural projects ranging from substantial regeneration, to residential and mixed use schemes.
