Exit Strategy

The proposed exit strategy is to sell the units on the open market, with sales expected to begin 6 months before the completion of the construction works using an on-site furnished show apartment.

The apartments will be marketed with local estate agents, with the target market being a mixture of owner occupiers, first time buyers and single let landlords. As the developer is registered with Help to Buy, we're are able to target this market as well.

Based on sold comparables we expect to be able to sell the properties for the following prices:

2 bed flats - £230,000 each and 1 bed flats - £170,000 each.

These sale estimates have been supported by a development sales appraisal report from two estate agents based in Ipswich, Connell's and Haart. They have been further supported by a desktop survey conducted by Aitchison Raffety on the 20th January 2019 advising the 2 bed flats to be worth £250,000 and the 1 bed flats £175,000.

Operational Delivery

With all JaeVee development projects, the SPV (in its role as the client) enters into a JCT 2016 design & build construction contract whereby the responsibility in delivering the project rests with the Principal Contractor.

The Principal Contractor has agreed to a fixed total contract sum of £4,295,200 (with an additional 5% contingency fund and 10% professional fees fund) in delivering the project within the set time frame of 18 months.

As the Principal Contractor is holding the design and build contract, it will select the sub-contractors to assist in delivering the project. The SPV has the right to request copies of the JCT subcontractor contracts which will be taken care of by JaeVee's inhouse project management team. This forms part of JaeVee's role as Employers Agent, overseeing the project from inception through to completion (the pre, during and post construction phases) assisting the property developer throughout.

As per CML regulations, a professional consultants certificate (also known as an architects certificate) will be issued after the building regulations completion certificate of works. This will provide a 6 year structural warranty which is a mandatory CML requirement for mortgage lenders to be able to lend on each dwelling.

The Property Developer also will be uploading updates to the JaeVee system throughout the duration of the project thus allowing investors to see the progress in real time.
