Developer Consultancy

Colmore Gaskell work closely with developers from planning stage to provide professional advice on design, estate management strategy, service charge strategy and lease provisions.

This enables the developer to ensure the estate can be properly managed, provide cost-effective service charges for purchasers and is also vital when looking to sell on the freehold interest to investors.

Prior to practical completion, Colmore Gaskell will have tendered and appointed soft service and maintenance contractors to commence work at handover.

We also arrange for a comprehensive health & safety/fire risk assessment and address any issues raised by the consultants to ensure the building is safe and compliant with legislation before the apartments are occupied.

Depending on the structure of the lease, once all properties have been sold, we will call a leaseholder meeting and look to appoint Directors to the Residents Management Company.

During the developers defect warranty period, Colmore Gaskell is happy to act as a conduit between the leaseholders and developer to assist with any snagging and warranty issues.

Our aim is to assist the developers in any way possible, provide professional advice in the interest of good estate management and to help ensure that the development can be run as smoothly and effectively as possible.
