Property And Land Sales Tenders

Property and land sales tenders are often released when organisations have property or land within their estates that they wish to take advice upon and/or sell. They are sometimes split into two phases, a consultation process and then a sales approach based on the advice given at the first stage. 

Who Commissions Property And Land Sales Tenders?

Property and land sales tenders are often commissioned by housing associations, councils and educational establishments. On occasions, the commissioner might have a number of acres of land that has been deemed suitable to offer to the market. 

If a housing developer has built a number of new homes, they often release tenders looking for services who can help sell the houses, with qualifying criteria such as being local to the development, being a first-time buyer, being a key worker, etc. There may also be a requirement imposed by the local authority for a number of shared ownership properties to be designated within the development. Thus, the commissioner will want sales and marketing agents with such experience.

What is Normally Involved in Property And Land Sales Tenders?

Depending on the nature of the tender, commissioners may stipulate that bidders must hold RICS accreditation ( and have a number of MRICS surveyors to assist in the:

  • Valuation and/or Acquisition of Land/Property
  • Development & Planning 
  • Project Management

Where tenders are based around key areas such as advising on a land portfolio, commissioners often base question sets around experience, potential concepts for the land and key members of the team that would be advising the commissioner. 

When it comes to property disposal tenders, commissioners might wish to base question sets around the areas of route to market, local presence, potential customer experience/journey and the price points of marketing properties. Property sales tenders often involve demonstrating your experience with other housing authorities. Bidders are often asked within a property sales tender to demonstrate their ability to market multiple developments, the ways they achieve this and key benchmarks to success such as number of days a property was sold within and if target values were achieved. 

In respect of shared ownership schemes, mentioned above, the commissioner may stipulate that a bidder must be a member of the Property Redress Scheme ( and to demonstrate experience and knowledge in shared ownership frameworks such as Help to Buy.
