Residential financial viability assessment

We adopt a strategic approach in advising our clients on viability matters

This ensures that the Affordable Housing strategy presented in planning applications is deliverable, maximises returns and affords the best possible prospect of securing planning consent.

Our experts assess the likely value of a proposed development against costs including land value, landowner premium and developer return. We have an extensive track record and deal with complex multi-phased developments within both the build to sell and build to rent markets. We are able to call upon that experience and provide our clients with a proactive and problem-solving approach to complex viability issues. Our advice is commercially driven and is provided within the framework of local, regional and national development plans, determined housing needs and known density parameters.

We provide detailed advice on the Affordable Housing provisions within S106 Agreements ensuring the seamless delivery of affordable housing units. We have an extensive track record of advising on complex viability review mechanisms.

We also have a strong background in providing expert evidence at planning appeals and public inquiries in respect of financial viability in planning. Our experts have appeared in a number of high profile cases where the provision of affordable housing has been a key aspect of the appeal.

We work with developers, local authorities and Registered Providers to advise on specialist building consultancy and planning services related to Financial Viability in Planning. This includes conducting feasibility studies, needs assessments and development consultancy in particular.

The insight and experience of our Affordable Housing team is unique in the property world thanks to its specialist experts for each part of the Affordable Housing lifecycle. The team has a strong track record in adding value to all types of developments with different tenures.
