This offers clarity for private investors, developers, corporate organizations, landlords, occupiers, and public bodies alike and supports informed decision-making.
Our expertise reveals the true nature of a property and its assets, starting with a building survey. We assess specifications and drawings, benchmark buildings against industry standards, assess repair obligations for leases, review legal contracts, prepare budget schedules and reports, and enter into negotiations to protect our clients’ position. Our experienced team covers Italy, offering the assurance of a solid track record of achievement combined with reliable and concise commercial advice. Our knowledge of urban planning regulations ensures we provide strategic advice on different legal routes when considering building use amendments.

We help by identifying a site’s unique selling features and value, reviewing development options to maximize marketability, and strategic planning and product optimization, then guide clients through their options on issues such as design, pricing, marketing, and exit strategies.
