Property advisory services

CIPFA Property is able to provide practical advice, support and in-house training to help you get the maximum out of your property assets.

Our experts can help with the overall performance of your property portfolio with strategic advice that can help to deliver significant savings. There is a need for outsourced and flexible help as organisations are stretched to meet current and future demands.

We are able to provide a full and varied advisory support service for the public sector, drawing on other specialists at CIPFA.

The range of services include:

  • high-level asset management 'health checks' – undertaking an audit of existing asset management policies and practices, identifying areas of strength and weakness and providing an improvement plan. More information here and here
