DevAssess Premium Residential

DevAssess Premium Residential establishes the development risk within 75m of the property’s boundaries and reports on the development potential of the site.

More comprehensive than DevAssess, this report is strongly recommended for residential properties over 0.25 acres and is a must for risk-averse clients.

Over the last five years, over 1/3 of our reports have exposed one or more high-risk sites within 75 metres.

This statistic is based upon thousands of reports undertaken across England and Wales and the statistic is currently tracking at over 40% of reports exposing one or more high-risk sites within 75 metres.

This increase reflects the initiatives from central government to encourage development in order to meet the shortfall of housing in the UK.

DevAssess Premium Residential is the must-have report for every risk-averse buyer.

We understand that buying a property is a huge investment of time and money, so we analyse both the location for development risk and the development potential of the site in question.

Our DevAssess Premium Residential report delivers a thorough analysis of a location, including crucial insight into the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) sites currently being considered for future allocation. DevAssess Premium Residential ensures you have all the information you need before proceeding to purchase.

Local development can alter views, reduce privacy, increase noise pollution, increase traffic volume, and risk local parkland, all of which will significantly reduce a property’s value and resale potential.

The report also identifies the development potential of the site. By exposing the hidden value, buyers can make a more informed investment.
