Transaction advisory

As a part of the transaction advice, you can rely on our Experts to conduct the Technical Due Diligence analysis, as well as property valuation.

Technical Due Diligence is a multi-business inspection and audit of facilities carried out with the help of professional engineers from the construction, architectural, sanitary, electrical and, if necessary – environmental and road industries.

The real estate valuation by a property valuation expert is often a prelude to further proceedings which aim at determining the amount of compensation, for example in damages where there has been a decrease in the value of the property.

Scope of transactional analysis:

  • real estate inspection performed by a team of qualified engineers;
  • inspection of plots with an overview of documentation of the objects that are located on said plots;
  • technical description of properties and precincts;
  • assessment of the technical condition and functions of all facilities planned to be demolished and the resulting costs;
  • assessment of the technical condition of real estate based on visual assessment in the field of construction, wiring, sanitation facilities and fire protection installations;
  • review of the formal documentation of the property (property book, use permit, mandatory reviews);
  • recommendations and estimated valuation of renovation costs and renovation works;
  • analysis of the actual state of the facility and archival technical documentation with regard to the adaptation planned by the Investor;
  • indication of the risks and scopes of works resulting from the need to adapt the facility to the current laws;
  • examination of the existing and designed road system with the possibility of its expansion and determining the initial costs of possible changes;
  • submitting comments and recommendations on circumstances that may have a significant impact on the investment;
  • risk analysis;
  • development of a detailed schedule for planned investments at each stage.
