As leading property experts within East Anglia, Watsons is well placed to offer expert developer property services consultancy and advice to developers at a very early stage of the development project. Our surveyors have worked on developing sites, our estate agents have sold new homes and our property managers have taken on developments and been retained as their managing agent as the sites have matured.
Years of Experience to Add Value to any Development Process
We work closely with developers at every stage, and across every type of residential block and commercial developments, including those that incorporate freehold units and mixed-use developments. Our involvement can begin from the outset, well in advance of planned handovers.
We work closely with sales teams to ensure their clients are aware of the services available and fully understand the annual service charge as well as helping to manage their expectations. We produce ‘welcome packs’ to ensure that future property owners have an accurate picture of the services available on the development and a clear idea of future payments.
We understand that every development is unique, and how important it is that pre and post sales service reflect and build a positive reputation of the developer creating clear documented procedures that are effectively communicated and understood by all parties concerned.
By bringing us in at the early planning stages of your build, we can offer expert pre-instruction advice on design and construction issues that may affect the future management of the property. We will create a comprehensive budget estimate and management proposal, liaise directly with solicitors as necessary and supply information packs to potential buyers.
Years of working in partnership with developers has given us the ability to add value to any development process by highlighting potential issues that may cause difficulties with the future management of the site. This may include on site estate staff and 24 Hour security, fire safety, the management of refuse and recycling, landscaping, window cleaning, parking strategies and the management of plant and assets.
