was established as part of Weald Group in 1985 and has remained a
wholly owned subsidiary of Weald since.
All property transactions carried out by Weald are effected through Headland
which has over
the years established a strong presence in the market and a reputation
for efficiency, reliability and a high quality product.
As evidenced on subsequent pages in this website, Headland seeks to purchase
well established areas, principally in London. It pursues a conservative
policy, in particular, by:-
(i) attempting to pursue a contrarian
approach to the market and to anticipate accurately market trends;
(ii) taking a creative approach to projects
that it considers are attractive, typically devising, before purchase,
two or three different ways of carrying out a development; and
(iii) managing its exposure to individual
sectors of the property market in order to ensure that it maintains a
well balanced portfolio.
The Company maintains a low overhead cost structure and engages most necessary
human and other resources on a project by project basis.
Its contra-cyclical attitude to the property market means that there are
periods when the pace of its activities is subdued.
Headland has been consistently profitable since 1985 despite significant
property downturns during that period.
