As Land Agents, we deal with all kinds of planning, environmental, ecological and stakeholder issues. Occasionally situations arise which raise a smile – so I thought I’d share the following one with you.
Q) When is a stake not a stake? A) When it’s a bird-table …
Our Land Manager, Barrie Solomons, had been negotiating a site in Dorset and contracts were due to exchange. The Vendor’s eagle-eyed Solicitor spotted a mistake in the boundary plan; the developer’s Surveyors had marked out the plan but mistakenly used a bird-table in a garden as a marker instead of the allotted stake in the ground.
The owner lives in Spain, and the whole plan had to be re-plotted, verified and sent to him for approval. Surely a case of miSTAKEn identity!
We’re constantly looking for land for sale in East or West Sussex, and Kent. For further details contact
