While property buyers and solicitors pay great attention to houses themselves, it is easy to overlook the surrounding area. Planning proposals can change the surrounding area permanently and negatively. It’s crucial to be aware of any potential developments within the immediate area, as these can have an impact on both the property value, and the owners’ enjoyment of it.

DevAssess* is a unique report which combines existing planning information with a comprehensive investigation which exposes unexploited development sites. As altered views and loss of privacy can significantly reduce the value of some properties, DevAssess reveals relevant potential development activity to homebuyers and nuisance planning applications that could affect the homebuyers’ enjoyment of the property.

The report also identifies the new build development potential of the property. By exposing the hidden value, buyers could make a home an even better investment.
