At times, Milk Chocolate will present properties that require cosmetic or structural renovations.
We do this for a few reasons:
• Higher rent can be achieved with some modifications
• To add instant equity
• To modify the home so it’s better suited to our clients needs
The thought of purchasing a property and undertaking a structural or cosmetic renovation can be a daunting experience, with most people not knowing where to start, how to negotiate costs and what tradesmen to trust.
If Milk Chocolate recommend a property that requires a cosmetic or structural renovation we offer full service Project Management, removing all the stress and allowing you to enjoy the process from afar.
To give you an idea, we would manage the following on your behalf:
Plan and Design
Failing to plan is planning to fail. We are totally diligent when planning your renovation and/or new build. Using our extensive network of town planners, architects and building designers - we have all the tools to set you on the right track.
|Design management||Project planning|
|Risk management||Document/Data control|
The elephant in the room is the council and how best to deal with them. Luckily we are well-verse with this part of the process and feel completely at home with council submissions. To coincide with this, we have a network of teams we call on for each project, dependant on the specific build design, structure and specialised requirements - making the tender stage all that more manageable.
|Council submissions||Client representation|
|Tender and sub-contractor management||Document/Data control|
Build, Insurance and Occupy
The nitty-gritty of the project is the build itself. We are your eyes and ears on the ground liaising with all the trades and teams of professionals on a daily basis. We will ensure your project runs on time and on budget, keeping you abreast along the way. We will ensure your build is compliant and certified before you or your tenant occupy the property.
