From initial consideration to final marketing, this book provides a complete overview of the essential steps in the property development process making it a must-have resource for students and professionals in property finance and development, planning, surveying and construction. Covering site-finding, valuation, funding and construction, the book examines each step of the process in the context of property development, avoiding overly technical jargon and explaining concepts clearly. This second edition has been revised and updated throughout, taking into account the effects of the credit crunch on development activity and funding. The authors also discuss changes in policy, thinking and practice which have stemmed from a desire by all stakeholders in the development process to foster more sustainable property developments.
