WE CAN ANSWER THEM
A location audit that exposes significant development risk that is both presently and potentially damaging to a property. It will investigate a 75m radius surrounding residential and small commercial properties. DevAssess exposes risks to views, value and enjoyment of the property in addition to providing a professional opinion as to the development potential of the subject property. If the property is larger than half an acre you may need DevAcquire.
For buyers of commercial property or large residential properties. DevAcquire identifies potential development risks up to 75m from the boundaries of the property. It also looks at the development potential of the subject property, in part or in its entirety. As a consequence of the depth of investigations we carry out it can assist in identifying alternative exit strategies and hidden value for investors and lenders.
