Property Research

Researching the market

We have a proactive, results-driven approach to research. This reduces the time it takes to find the right property for a person with disabilities—and, most importantly, enables us to find them a place to call home.

the brief

The research starts with the injured person whose home this will be. To find a suitable property, we need to understand the injured person’s needs, where they want to live, their likes (and dislikes), their architectural preferences, the care packages they require, and also how we can help their family through this crucial time.

Working with the individual and their family from the outset helps us to identify what to look for in the market and ensure it fits their specific needs.

Evaluating what’s possible

We provide a clear and concise view of the current market, setting expectations for what is possible and within budget.

There are many factors that could affect the search for a new home. We evaluate all the information available before reporting back to all stakeholders, including geographic and demographic analysis, and past and present sales data, and we work hard to ensure that this data forms an integral part of how we find a home.

Preparing to make the purchase

Before the person buys their new home, we make sure everyone involved is happy to progress with the purchase, and that the budget will be used to best effect.

Our renowned pre-purchase reports make recommendations based on research into electrical and plumbing conditions, asbestos management, drainage, and other aspects of the property not always covered by a survey. We also advise on the potential costs of carefully adapting the person’s new home, as far as reasonably possible.

our research reports

We pride ourselves on offering different forms of report and analysis dependant on the needs of the potential client and their legal team. These include:

Property search review – Outlines potential properties within a set search area, their suitability and the potential adaptations that could be made.

Property search analysis – Provides specialist local knowledge of the market within the search area, market trends and statistics, and budget requirements.

PPR the pre-purchase report – An in-depth review of structural composition, the neighbourhood, and vital information for the design and tender stage. It also ensures the price paid reflects the accurate state of the property.

Suitability reports –These look at how a property can be made to work for the client by providing an initial design and an estimated cost plan.
