When a client comes to me with a property they want to buy, sell, or redevelop, several questions come to mind. These questions generally fall into the categories of development, environmental, liability, and regulatory. Over the years, I’ve compiled a standard list of questions, the answers to which help shape my strategy for assisting my client. These questions also help focus my client’s attention on myriad issues they may want to consider.
As a client, having this same list of questions in your back pocket can help you engage with your consultant in a more strategic and efficient way. Getting on the same page early about the scope and desired outcome of a project can foster a smooth and productive relationship.
