This basic assessment for residential and commercial purchasers of properties under 0.25 acres exposes any significant development risks in a 75m radius from the centre of the main structure. Areas investigated include risks to views, the impact on its value and enjoyment potential should development occur nearby, and a professional opinion on its development potential.
A DevAssess report is delivered in 5 working days. However, a limited number of fast tracked orders are accepted each day. Properties larger than 0.5 acre or those requiring a more in-depth report are better suited to DevAssess Premium.
This comprehensive report provides greater depth of information on potential risks. Recommended as the ‘go-to’ choice for risk-adverse property purchases under 40 acres, its search area extends 75m from the boundary. It looks at traveller sites, the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, local policy, listed buildings, the five-year housing supply and changes to nearby major infrastructure. Greater depth of this report can reveal alternative exit strategies and potential hidden value in properties.
A DevAssess Premium report will be delivered in 3 working days. However, a limited number of fast tracked orders will be accepted each day. Properties over 40 acres are priced on an individual basis.

Major urban locations are constantly evolving, especially in the big cities of England and Wales. These high-value, high-risk areas are analysed in two stages – initially looking at the planning history of nearby structures, followed before exchange by any other pending planning applications. As planning data can be four weeks out of date when purchased, it is essential for litigious clients to make sure the best data is being investigated. Just before exchange, the report is updated with any responses from the Freedom of Information Act request, revealing any other pending planning applications.

Sometimes you just need to investigate whether a piece of land or an asset has development potential. This report examines the hidden potential or alternative use in a property that may increase its value. Widely used by solicitors, estate agents, asset managers and debt recovery experts for identifying where land values may exceed existing use values, the report protects professional indemnity insurance from the risk of underselling property assets. With HMRC making random checks on property assets being sold, this report gives solicitors peace of mind that they have adequately assessed any development potential.
