Why bring your land to Renaissance Retirement and not the competition?

1. Our track record for securing planning permission without the need of an appeal is second to none, meaning your fees will be paid significantly quicker

2. Unlike our competitors we will gladly team up with your local estate agent network to assist us in selling our retirement apartments (if you have a suitable presence within the town)

3. We are a small, personal team who project manage each and every site we acquire, so you will always have direct access to key people and be kept abreast of what stage a particular site is at throughout the acquisition and planning process

4. We are able to make land acquisition decisions immediately as we do not operate like many of our larger corporate competitors who will have to go through a protracted board approval process in order to acquire a site

5. We always pay introducing agents their deserved land introduction fees

Nick Watkins, Renaissance’s Development Director, comments: “Many years spent working on my own as a land agent has given me a unique insight into what level of communication is required with all land agents or companies who introduce sites to us. I am acutely aware that a quick view on whether an introduced site is suitable is essential feedback for any land agent, especially if it is an off-market site that has just been introduced to Renaissance before being sent to anyone else.”
