Although I cannot reproduce Tony's article I can mention some of its salient points.
Claremont Forbes intends to offer investors parcels of land that already has planning permission. Each land site would be organised and managed as a Limited Liability Partnership.
‘At Claremont Forbes you will find a highly experienced team who take pride in offering a best-in-class service.’
What property experience do you and your team have?
From Tony Hetherington’s article on Midas Extra:
‘So, what is Claremont Forbes offering? So far, not a lot. The company is run by 28-year-old Terence Farr, who has never headed a limited company before. He told me that it is offering land in Kent, but he added that it was ‘in the process of acquiring one new site as well as finalising a recent property investment club’ – so it appears there is as yet no LLP up and running that the FSA could put under the microscope.’
What land with planning permission in Kent are you offering? Also is Claremont Forbes (Margate Kent) LLP up and running.
‘But unless those investors know what they are doing, and perhaps have some knowledge of planning and development, and land values, it is hard to see the attraction. And with Claremont Forbes itself anticipating a battle with the FSA, it is easier to see the downside and decide to steer clear.’
