Our Office

Putterills has a specialist Land Department at Bridge Street in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. One of our roles is to identify and progress development opportunities – be they for newly built homes or conversions of existing sites and properties - using unrivalled local knowledge and expertise.

The demand for development sites continues to be strong and, with supply limited, this is unlikely to change as the presumption against development in the Green Belt continues to prevail.

In line with these planning guidelines we spend a lot of time looking at opportunities to redevelop previously used sites and buildings, often referred to as "Brownfield land" as part of new property development.

Once a site has been identified, we can recommend the most suitable type of development within existing planning guidelines. We can work with the landowner to progress the project through to a planning approval and then introduce the site to our comprehensive database of builders and developers - ranging from small local companies through to the national house builders.

If our clients don’t want to go through the planning themselves we can find a development partner who will fund the planning process with an option to buy the site once planning has been obtained.

In addition, some developers have dormant sites that they no longer wish to build, so we also offer a confidential site sales service as well.

The Department in Hertfordshire is led by Ken Lee. Ken has been involved in the property development business since 1981 working, at director level, with major national companies and smaller niche developers on land development projects.

As a Chartered Surveyor, he has the experience and knowledge to recognise and co-ordinate opportunities - from small sites to more complicated, brownfield and multi party site assemblies - with the skill and professionalism to get the best deal for land and property owners.

The Land Department’s activities and contacts are very important to the generation of sales of new homes. We work alongside other property professionals such as planning consultants, architects and solicitors to ensure our clients have access to the best possible advice.

From the very beginning of the process, Kay has been really accommodating, facilitating viewings at short notice and at weekends which was a great help as we lived in another part of the country. She was extremely professional, gave us regular and clear updates, responded to queries quickly and made the whole process much less stressful for us. Would have no hesitation in recommending Kay and Putterills. Thank you very much!

Alecia B - Aug 2016

Putterills are the selling agents for a small new development in Knebworth. We have found the selling Sales Manager (Dom) extremely professional. He has ensured that the process of progressing the purchase has been smooth and liaised both with the developer (Matthew Homes) and the site manager (Tom). Dom has maintained communication on a regular basis. He has answered questions promptly and chased as needed other parties. This has significantly reduced stress associated with the purchase of a new home. I should add that Dom also positively assisted with pushing the progress of the whole chain we are involved in. I would recommend Putterills to others where they provide the agency service for a new home development

Trevor Pope - June 2016

I have been dealing with Dom Ciraolo. A most pleasant, approachable, helpful and professional person. He makes the house purchase process as stress free as it can be. Many thanks. As a representative of Putterills, this gives a good positive impression of the company as a whole.
