Development Appraisal

Our Chartered Surveyors can advise on the viability of a project or identify the value land has for potential development.

Our development appraisals involve assessment and advice regarding the viability of a development proposal or the value of land for development purposes. As RICS Registered Valuers, we have an excellent understanding of property appraisal techniques as well as the development process, undertaking this service primarily for property owners, developers, architects and quantity surveyors. This service allows us to advise our clients on the overall form of the development to enable a maximum return on investment for the developer or landowner.

For all your development land valuation needs, you can contact:

Peter Riches on 01206 505709, or email peter@mrallp.co.uk

This has included sales, purchasing and renting of office properties in and around Colchester. He has been very professional and thorough, combining this with an understanding of the needs of a business client such as ourselves. Together with Peter Riches, he forms a very strong and likeable team."

We have also instructed Peter Riches to undertake a range of professional work on other properties in our portfolio including valuations, rent reviews, records of condition and schedules of dilapidation.  Again, we have always been pleased with the outcome and as a result have been happy to recommend him to other property owners known to us."
