Due diligence and reporting

We undertake thorough property investigations in consultation with other leading experts, including financial, legal, technical, planning and other asset-specific requirements, providing a comprehensive property report and due diligence package.

Sourcing Phase

Extensive and ongoing liaison with estate agents, private owners, developers, and other parties to obtain access to off-market and pre-market opportunities and publicly available, on-market opportunities. All investment opportunities must pass our proprietary investment grading criteria.
