Property Reinstatement Cost Assessments – Are your property assets correctly insured ?

Construction costs are subject to constant change, so if you are insured are you confident that you are not either under or over insured in a changing cost market?

Quantity Surveyors are the only construction cost trained professionals that can make sure your assets have the appropriate insurance replacement cost cover.

A Quantity Surveyors purpose is to predict and manage construction costs. They are specifically trained to do so and they don’t value, they don’t build, they don’t design, they don’t buy and sell property. They are independent and professional consultants.

So here’s a quick list of Property Reinstatement Cost Assessments do’s and don’ts : Continue reading

Over the past few years, the Australian development market has been severely hit by the credit crisis by the reduction in primary lenders and also the remaining banks appetite (or sometimes lack of it) to fund anything that they deem to be “risky”.

“Risky” has taken on a whole new meaning in the last few years and as we’ve talked about before you could have the best site in town, with an award winning design and 100% pre sales – but this in some instances still proved too risky for the banks in an uncertain market going forward.

To be fair to the banks, we are seeing increased lending activity in some sectors of the market, generally not large builds but certainly in the up to $20m market and more recently to a limited extent in the $20m to $100m sector with some isolated builds over $100m, so some of the banks, at least seem to have a developing appetite for deals.

A significant issue raised by a number of banks, is the quantum and quality of equity being put forward by developers with lenders wanting to see “real dollars” as a means of mitigating their risk further. Continue reading
