Property Acquisition

Marldon acquires properties and sites for development that need significant refurbishment or new construction. The company has its heart in the business of building and so typically, projects are acquired vacant, with or without planning permission, in order to create new properties from the foundation work all the way through to interior design of the finished space.

Prices for properties of interest to Marldon tend to be in the sub-£5m range, with proposed development costs of £2m-£8m.
