We have extensive experience in providing technical due diligence advice to investment managers, institutional investors, private equity and public bodies as part of the acquisition and disposal process and management of existing stock. We have a wealth of experience in a wide variety of sectors including office, retail, industrial, build to rent, purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA), healthcare and defence sectors. Our experience includes working with listed, new build and converted property in a variety of scenarios including portfolio and stand-alone transactions, refinancing, development and portfolio management.
Thorough and relevant advice
We understand that every transaction has a unique set of underlying drivers and risks, and that awareness of these is key to delivering advice that is both comprehensive and relevant to your appraisal process and business planning. We therefore take an approach that combines rigorous and comprehensive review of all core technical aspects, paired with the flexibility to tailor our reporting for issues of particular relevance to the wider transaction process. Our goal on every instruction is to provide our clients with the essential technical information in the most clear and concise manner, backed up with a clear appreciation of your requirements and the matters most relevant to you.
Our priority ranked cost summary tables highlight the most important issues and works required, and provide a view on recoverability under tenant leases and service charge. We are also able to offer additional budget cost advice for redevelopment or refurbishment proposals, and onward management of the process under our Contract Administration Service (Link to page).
Communication is key
We also understand that information flow is key to a smooth reporting process, and therefore pledge to deliver a summary of the key issues, outstanding information required and further investigations that may be necessary within 48 hours of inspection. We will call immediately following inspection with any significant concerns, and proactively liaise with your other consultants where directed to ensure timely flow of key information.
Our full reporting will complete the process, accounting for all additional information received following the initial enquiries. We will assimilate this information and discuss any key items of expenditure with you before issue of the final report, expanding as necessary on items such as estimation of recoverability from tenants, recommended capex improvement works or estate management issues to be followed up post reporting.
