Landmark Investments Group has placed more than £100million of ground rent deals with lawyers in the last 12 months.

It comes as the Bolton company, which acquires and manages residential and commercial ground rents, celebrates 15 years in business.

Managing director Mark Hawthorn said the activity in the 12 months to September 30 2015 covers its own portfolio as well as deals for retained clients.

It is also estimated that the deal haul covers in excess of £2bn worth of land and property.

Mark said: “I’m very proud of what we have achieved over the last 15 years, during which we have seen a lot of changes in the market.

“We continue to grow and innovate and are seen as leaders within the market.

“Our own portfolio has grown to over £25m and targeted to hit £30m by the end of the year. We enjoy low gearing which offers a robust platform for further growth and expansion into other asset classes.”

Ben Ogunby, Acquisitions Director, added: “We are sought out on a daily basis by a host of residential and commercial developers as well as their advisors, lawyers and lenders.

“We are happy to provide free up to the minute advice and guidance on the market to ensure sites are optimised for best value.

“We are confident of being able to add value in almost every situation, which is reflected in our deal volumes.”
