What do we cover?

During our consultation call we will cover the following topics:

• Context Analysis: we will conduct a thorough analysis of the context surrounding your property, identifying both constraints and opportunities to help you make an informed decision.

• Architectural Layout study: we will use the available floor plans to sketch possible design solutions, to verify if the property can fit the scheme you have in mind.

• Planning: We will investigate local planning policies that may impact your development, helping you identifying possible challenges related to your scheme.

Building Regulation: we will identify any building regulation requirements, including fire and acoustic regulations, that may affect your project, providing peace of mind and ensuring compliance with all relevant regulations.

• Feasibility & Viability Summary: we will conclude our call highlighting our findings and recommending the best strategy for your project and the potential risks associated with it. We understand that while a project may be technically feasible, it may not be a wise investment. Therefore, leveraging our development experience, we will offer expert guidance to ensure that your project is not only feasible but also viable in the long term.

• Planning Success Rate: at the end of the call we will list all the risks related to the project and establish an indicative % Planning Success Rate to help you make an informed decision about your potential property purchase.

"I had the pleasure of booking a pre-purchase consultation call with WindsorPatania, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The architect I spoke with was very knowledgeable and provided me with tailored recommendations that helped me feel more confident about the purchase of an old building needing renovation works which I wanted to split into flats. They took the time to understand my unique needs and provided me with practical and actionable guidance. Overall, I highly recommend this service to anyone looking to buy a property..”
