Large construction projects invariably call for substantial budgets that often call for the involvement of a funder. Since funding will commence before construction even begins, these projects can represent a significant risk to banks or other lenders so many will appoint an independent monitoring surveyor (IMS) to protect their financial interest in the scheme.

Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors offers a dedicated development monitoring surveying service for funders, acting as their eyes and ears from pre-construction stage through to final completion when the final sum will be released to the developer and the project handed over to the client.

If you would like to talk to a team of Development Monitoring experts about a project that requires funding and specialist protection, please contact us.

Appoint a Development Monitoring surveying team to protect your funding interests

Lenders are often subject to extraordinarily high risks, which are dependent on the success of a development scheme – appointing an independent development monitoring specialist to oversee the project will not only help to mitigate risk, but ensure it remains on track, on budget and remains fully compliant with standards and the lending client’s proposals.

Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors’ Development Monitoring service begins before construction with an initial report that covers due diligence, planning permissions, building regulations approvals, warranties and insurances, and a detailed review of proposed construction costs. This staged process is reviewed on an ongoing basis throughout the construction process as we continually check compliance with the scheme’s original proposals, conduct programme and change management and cashflow reviews.

Our interim reports provide all the evidence funders need to allay or uncover concerns – these reports are usually used to sanction the staged drawdowns for funds to the borrower. Our final inspection will address all remaining issues, including variations, permissions and approvals so that final handover of the project can take place.

Contact us to discuss a project that calls for the services of a trusted team of development monitoring and surveying specialists to give you the reassurance your funds are being utilised as they should be.

What’s included in a commercial property management service?

Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors Property Management services are tailored to suit each client and extend from basic landlord services to sophisticated programmes for more complex commercial estates. You can discover more about what’s included here.

What are the main benefits of an acquisition survey?

An acquisition survey will help you avoid any unexpected issues and costs that may appear in the future and give you greater power to negotiate a better deal on your new commercial property. You can find out more about what’s involved in a Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors acquisition survey here.

Whose responsibility is it to conduct a Schedule of Condition?

It is usually the landlord that agrees to allow a Schedule of Condition to be incorporated into a commercial lease but, as the beneficiary, it is usually the tenant that arranges for the Schedule of Condition to be prepared.  The document is then assessed by the landlord for agreement before incorporation into the lease. Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors acts for both landlords and tenants in the production and review of Schedules of Condition. It helps to protect the condition of the landlord’s property and is a safeguard against dilapidations claims for the tenant. Read more about what this service entails here.

How can you avoid a dilapidations claim at the end of a commercial lease?

Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors recommend that dilapidations is a key point of consideration for both landlords and tenants from the commencement of a new commercial lease – this way we can help our clients negotiate the most favourable terms and manage their liability. Read about our dilapidations services here.

How often should you conduct a rent review for a commercial property?

A rent review should take place according to the terms of the commercial lease although, typically, rent reviews take place at five to 10-year intervals. You can read more about Trinity Rose Chartered Surveyors’ rent review service here.

When should you carry out an IRV assessment?

We recommend that building owners, landlords and tenants who are responsible for insuring commercial premises carry out regular IRV assessments, ideally every three years, to ensure reinstatement values remain accurate. Read more about our IRV Assessment service here.
