Investors and Developers

Growing income and capital returns for investors and developers

We understand that your priority is to maximise your return in a way that suits your individual risk profile and incorporates your legal and social responsibilities. At JK, we use our in-depth sector and policy knowledge to forecast future opportunities and guide you towards lucrative investments that hit your objectives.

Planning development viability

We combine experience and business acumen with effective communication and consultation to make sure all parties fully understand the impact of planning. We rely on fully structured negotiations and only refer to the appeal system as a last resort, moving you away from a litigious planning system to one that is positive, proactive and more likely to generate swift returns.

Development appraisals

Under increasing levels of scrutiny from planning departments, it’s more important than ever that you can demonstrate viability through a well-researched and robust appraisal methodology. At JK, we are often instructed early, at the concept stage, to suggest uses that will maximise social and economic value, to deliver appraisals for viability studies, and to make sure you fully understand the potential of your scheme.

Development management

Whether you’re an experienced investor or new to the game, instructing JK means you immediately benefit from our experience, infrastructure, databases and specialist partners every step of the way, from viability appraisals and valuations to securing finance and planning permission, to eventual sale or lettings. We create development strategies that are ambitious and achievable, turning your goals into clear returns.

Land sales and acquisitions

When it comes to buying and selling development sites, JK can empower you to successfully overcome even the most complex of issues. From the creation of detailed market reports and the targeting of on-and-off-market opportunities to the formation of Joint Venture Partnerships and the negotiation of options, clawbacks and development agreements, we are here to advise you every step of the way.

Investment management

Whether your investment goal is to increase personal wealth, provide a pension fund, or create a stable income or asset base for your business, we can help you achieve better returns in a shorter timeframe. Through our excellent market knowledge and proactive management style, we ensure that your new or existing portfolios have clear objectives and are managed in line with these – through simple ‘buy, sell and hold’ recommendations through to a full management service.

Investment agency services

Property investment can be lucrative, but it is a long-term investment and gains are often realised through purchasing at the right price or by selling at the right time. At JK, we provide a highly personalised service, enabling unique access to the best deals and recommending when to secure or dispose of your assets. As agents, we have a large contact database of owners, developers and buyers so we can act quickly to reach your investment goals discretely and purposefully.

“JK Property Consultants helped us in our search as a new business to find the best possible premises and location in which to set up our artisan bakery. There was a scarcity of small units fit for the food hygiene needs. Their knowledge of the availability of units, and the help and guidance given, enabled us to find suitable premises from which to grow and thrive through a very challenging economic climate”
