We are experienced in the provision of acquisition advice to companies seeking to expand their property holdings for occupational or investment purposes.

We are able to undertake property searches, advising clients, enabling them to achieve the best possible terms for the acquisition of freehold and leasehold property. For companies seeking to rationalise their property holdings we are able to advise on disposal strategies and how best to achieve the best possible terms for the sale or leasing of a surplus property.

Scanlans Consultant Surveyors Portfolio


Across the practice, we have extensive experience of selling residential and commercial property together with development land sites. We have sold individual properties and portfolios having acted on behalf of individuals, lenders and development companies.

Using the extensive nature of our contacts, we are on occasions aware of clients looking for certain property types to purchase and are able to introduce clients to one another promptly and with the minimum of disturbance to any tenants if the property is let. This can be important when a low key marketing approach is requested by the vendor.

CPO Building for Scanlans consultant


A Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) is made to enable a public body such as a local authority to buy land or buildings which Parliament has decided is in the public interest. If your property becomes the subject of a CPO you need to obtain specialist advice promptly.

We will value your interest and enter into negotiations with the acquiring authority in order to obtain the best possible price for you. You will also be eligible for disturbance costs. The general principle of CPO compensation is that you should be no worse or better off in financial terms after the acquisition.

If your property is the subject of a CPO and you require further advice then please contact Ian Stanistreet on 07973 656 196
