What to watch out for

  • The landowner grants a developer a call option to buy land and the developer grants the landowner a put option over all or part of the land in the event that the developer does not exercise the call option

  • If the call option is exercised, the purchase price is calculated as a percentage of the property's market value with the benefit of the planning permission that is obtained by the developer

  • If the put option is exercised, the sale price is an agreed fixed amount
