Residential / Commercial & industrial Developments

Please call now for assistance with your project.
Due Diligence, Land Sale and Acquisition
Similar to property development Phase I and Phase II site investigations are carried out on land prior to its sale to ensure there are no issues with a site and to ensure the seller receives maximum values for their land and the buyer understands any potential concerns which may render the property not worth investment. It is vital that both parties understand any potential issues with any piece of land and this due diligence process is essential when buying or selling land.
