    Surveyors could and should be involved in every aspect of any investors real estate decision making. In the first stage, an investor or developer could consult with a surveyor to find suitable land plots, assess development potential and constraints and advice on planning and development strategy in order to make the development as profitable as possible.

    At this stage it pays to have a multi-disciplinary team of surveyors employed – for the viability, valuation and feasibility work, a commercial surveyor will be able to advise, whereas for the construction and project management work, a building surveyor will be able to advise, ensuring that the client is getting the best advice throughout the process, avoiding any pitfalls and maximising profitability.

    A commercial surveyor will also be able to help with the marketing of the development scheme, either for subsequent sale, or for leasing. With leasing of uncompleted developments, it’s absolutely vital that a client gets professional advice, as the wrong lease or tenant could seriously prejudice any future lettings.
