Advisory - Residential Valuation
Harry Wackett is an RICS Registered Valuer who specialises in Planning Viability and Affordable Housing.
Harry prepares Financial Viability Assessments in support of residential-led planning applications on behalf of developers, Housing Associations and landowners. This involves justifying and agreeing on the level of affordable housing that a scheme is able to support whilst remaining deliverable. Harry then reviews and drafts S.106 legal agreements and negotiates the affordable housing contribution applicable once a viability review mechanism has been triggered.
Harry also advises landowners and developers on affordable housing accommodation within a development as the scheme design progresses from inception through to scheme completion. Through his understanding of each affordable housing tenure and its physical and value implications, Harry can optimize a scheme accordingly. Harry also carries out soft market testing and informal tenders to a select list of Housing Associations on behalf of developers, as well as acting on behalf of Housing Associations when acquiring affordable accommodation.
"Harry is reliable, responsive and always delivers robust advice. His attention to detail and problem solving ability have been an important part in the delivery of schemes. "
