Residential Land Expert Joins Sibley Pares Chartered Surveyors in Maidstone

Sibley Pares Chartered Surveyors are delighted to welcome residential development land specialist Mark Presland as the newest partner and the latest addition to the fast-growing team. Mark will add to the already exceptional line-up at the Maidstone office which includes Chartered Surveyors Phil Hubbard, Sarah Raggett, Matthew Carpenter, David Pares, Brian Matthews and Chartered Building Surveyor Mark Kenward.

As an expert in residential and commercial development land throughout Kent and Sussex, Mark’s expertise will further bolster the wide range of services already offered by the firm. Mark can accurately value and appraise residential land opportunities as well as advise on new homes and affordable housing. Mark can also provide in-depth advice on the acquisition and sale of development land throughout Kent and Sussex.

Working with a wide variety of clients including private land owners, public bodies, developers, investors and housing associations, Mark will join our existing team in providing advice on the potential of land and buildings in both the residential and commercial sectors. Mark will also join the team in offering advice on securing the requisite planning consent, overseeing development, preparing viability appraisals and disposing of the land. As an RICS Registered Valuer, Mark will work within our dedicated valuations team too.

Having grown up in Maidstone and attended the Maidstone Grammar School, Mark now lives in Rochester with his wife Hannah and his local knowledge is second-to-none. After receiving a Masters in Planning and Development from the University of Sheffield in 2006, Mark qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2008 and has previously worked with existing partners at the firm, most notably David Pares with whom he will continue to work closely. He is a keen athlete and has recently ran the Paris Marathon to raise funds for local charity, Pilgrim’s Hospice.

Mark commented that:  “I have known and worked alongside Sibley Pares and have always considered them to be a well-regarded professional company and I am looking forward to adding my expertise and helping the company adjust and grow in this ever changing property sector.”

Partner at Sibley Pares LLP, Phil Hubbard adds “I have long admired Mark both in a professional and a personal capacity and am delighted he has agreed to join us at Sibley Pares. Mark’s knowledge in land and development is exceptional and he is very well respected in the industry and will help to expand this side of the business for us, particularly working alongside David Pares whose expertise and depth of experience in unrivalled. Mark will help us to build further upon the outstanding service we offer our clients across all matters in commercial and residential property matters. It is also going to be good to have someone else in the office to talk to about football, although as a Tottenham fan I am not sure how much weight his opinion will have!”
