Landfill ownership transfer - the Northumberland Estates

Landfill ownership transfer - the Northumberland Estates

With a property portfolio including quarries and landfill sites, the Northumberland Estates is a privately owned family business that represents the interests of the Duke of Northumberland. The Seghill landfill site, leased by the Estates to SITA for depositing household waste, has recently closed and is being restored. The lease included a provision allowing the Estates to ask SITA to accept a transfer of the land - the Estate viewed the landfill as a liability.
 
We were asked to progress the transfer of ownership on their behalf. Wardell Armstrong project managed the transfer process and the site was transferred to SITA together with the potential liabilities.
