We have an absolute commitment to collaboration and best practices which ensures that clients obtain maximum benefit from our knowledge, expertise and global alignment.
We have dedicated regional leaders who form our global senior management group within Valuation & Advisory Services to ensure our agreed strategy and goals are achieved.
Whether it is a direct acquisition, a disposal or a joint venture; an accurate assessment of the property value is the starting point of a transaction. Often, it goes beyond the valuation report with advice given on other aspects of the property due diligence. We can effectively structure the best team to complete any assignment anywhere. The team comprises talented professionals with expertise in every discipline of real estate development.
Listed companies and managed funds require regular revaluations of their property portfolios to comply with the various regulatory requirements. Our experienced team is able to prepare valuations that comply with the local regulatory requirements in each market, and can be used for annual reports and when shareholders need to be notified of transactions that occur during the reporting year.
We conduct in-depth market surveys, feasibility studies, design and management reviews, often in conjunction with other consultants such as architects, planners, engineers and quantity surveyors. The team’s role is to focus on the development strategy, marketing, financial and management aspects of a project to assist in optimising the returns for the developer / investor.
As lending markets become more sophisticated, so do valuation reports. Fully supported valuations with comparables, calculations and reasoning are increasingly required in Asia, and we have implemented procedures and systems to prepare these in both hard and soft copy formats.
We advise on town planning applications, change of use, lease modifications and short term tenancies. Services include valuations and estimations of the land premium involved, the optimum approach to be adopted, lodging of documents and negotiations with the relevant government departments.
We prepare proofs of evidence and expert witness reports in connection with legal disputes, claims and arbitrations. We are experienced in preparing reports in a form that is acceptable to the courts as evidence, and also in appearing in court to give evidence as an expert witness.
Mergers and acquisitions often involve the transfer of significant property interests even for companies whose core business is not property-related. The performance can be analysed, and leases can be reviewed to confirm compliance with market standards and to identify any possible savings. Forecasts and projections of future performance can also be provided.
