This property investments database lists freehold residential & commercial property investment, property renovation and property development sites for sale such as run down, disused or derelict pubs, wine bars, night clubs, hotels. hostels, care homes, guest houses, petrol stations, factories, churches, hospitals, post offices and other former public buildings.

Many of the property investments listed for sale enjoy prime high street city, village or town centre locations and have car parks, accommodation, beer gardens & out buildings. With the necessary planning permission or consent for change of business use, delicensed , disused, former pub sites may be suitable for complete redevelopment as 'new build' residential schemes of flats, apartments and houses or multiple mixed commercial properties, such as retail, office and leisure. Existing run down, unmodernised or old fashioned pubs and pub buildings may need simple, general or extensive refurbishment, renovation, restoration or repairs.

For the first time property investor or developer it is essential to consider the following points before committing to buying an empty or run down pub or public house for redevelopment, conversion or renovation:

'Planning permission' - Planning consent may be required if the external appearance of the existing pub or shop are to be altered, or if new buildings are proposed. Planning permission may also be required if a change of use is proposed from a commercial property, pubs and hotels for example, to a residential, retail or office property. Planning laws on change of use may restrict development to residential property on pubs in certain areas; a city centre bar or pub is more likely to gain planning permission for conversion to a residential property than the only pub in the village. High street pubs may also be put to different commercial uses; some changes are considered as 'permitted development' under the Use Classes Order 1987. Pubs and wine bars for example, are in the A4 ‘Drinking Establishment’ class, and conversion is permitted to the following;

A1 Shops - Shops, retail warehouses, hairdressers, undertakers, travel and ticket agencies, post offices (but not sorting offices), pet shops, sandwich bars, showrooms, domestic hire shops, dry cleaners, funeral directors and internet cafes.

A2 Financial and professional services - Financial services such as banks and building societies, professional services (other than health and medical services) including estate and employment agencies and betting offices.

A3 Restaurants and cafés - For the sale of food and drink for consumption on the premises - restaurants, snack bars and cafes.

The majority of our freehold property development opportunities are not offered on a 'subject to planning permission ' basis which means it is essential for applicants to conduct their planning due diligence before commencing negotiations. This is easily done by consulting with the relevant Local Planning Authority or/and following the planning guidelines set out in the most recent Unitary Development Plan (UDP).

'Costs' - There are endless costs associated with a potential site redevelopment and/or the conversion, refurbishment and modernisation of existing properties. It is essential from the outset to be surrounded by a highly experienced and reliable professional team. Appointing a good architect and quantity surveyor is a perfect starting point in establishing architectural possibilities and quoting an estimate on building costs associated with the development. They can also assist in obtaining planning consent and advising on matters such as whether Listed Building Consent is required and whether Conservation Area rules need to be followed. Most can recommend good builders, plumbers, architects and electricians for the specific job at hand. Other costs include lawyers fees and Stamp Duty which are general applicable on every acquisition. VAT may also be payable.
