DevAssist

DevAssist is the only company that audits locations for development risks and opportunities.

You could be buying or selling property with no knowledge of how views could be altered or removed due to new development.

  • Have the neighbours ever attempted to obtain planning permission for new build development?DevAssist-Logo-v8
  • Are they trying to achieve permission for a basement or an extension?
  • Are those fields safe from development?
  • Why are the vendors selling?

You and your solicitor should be asking these questions. DevAssist can answer them.

Great for solicitors:

Did you know that 95% of your client base is concerned about development risks. 10% will be affected by it.

With solicitors PI being one of the most common contributory factors to solicitors going out of business can you afford not to protect it? DevAssist have created the only reports of their type in the country. DevAssist investigate and audit a location so that buyers of property can purchase with peace of mind, or in the knowledge that change is coming. By understanding change it prevents any blame to the solicitor and increases service levels.

Great for lenders:

Development, change of use or views can have a huge impact on value. Understanding a location is critical.

Valuing makes many assumptions and is based on what a valuer sees. Just as a valuer cannot see an environmental or flood risk they will not see a development risk.

It could be land that is going to be used for an alternative and less neighbourly use or a dramatic reduction in view. We have identified numerous examples where a significant change to an area would impact the value of a property.

This is vital information for both the lender and the buyer. Alternatively a property could have hidden value that has not been identified. This could improve the value and lower the risk for the lender.

For more information please contact us on 01524 220001, or by email at davidopie@etsos.co.uk

We are going to win a lot of business thanks to ETSOS Julian Sampson – Wright and Wright LLP
