Development Risk Webinar Confirmed

poweredbypie has confirmed a free development risk webinar to be run by Paul Addison, Managing Director of DevAssist for 11am on 3 November 2021. 

Paul Addison, Managing Director of DevAssist confirms:

“With nearly one-third of our reports identifying properties as having a high risk of development within 75m, conveyancers need to be able to offer  information that identifies and analyses the risk, in order to protect clients’ investments.  Our free webinar for poweredbypie’s customers will highlight the challenges and risks and look at how to adopt a best practice approach to development risk.”

The session will include:

  • National Planning Policy
  • Five-year housing supply and its importance.
  • Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessments (SHLAA)
  • Bird and Bird case law
  • Case studies

Addison continues:

“With UK development targets for housing set at 300,000 new properties each year until 2025, it is even more important than ever to protect clients from the increased risk of development.  Our webinar will inform conveyancers about the latest policy and how to present planning information to clients and we will be able to answer questions to ensure conveyancers can move forward in the best position to mitigate the risk.”
