You cannot miss them - those monoliths that remained abandoned for years on end. They blight our urban landscape. They are grave cause for concern , a festering wound- to those who have invested in them, to neighbouring property owners and to every caring member of our urban community. They undermine would be investors confidence in the Region's ability to sustain our economic promise.
No concerted effort appear to have been taken to address the situation. We have invited a number of speakers ranging from those who have first-hand experience in investing, dealing and in administering such buildings, property professionals who have advised clients in managing property assets in project and construction management and in marketing such properties. We have invited a well known speaker to discuss the adequacy of our existing laws and their implementation to deal with the situation.
Participation will have a chance to express their views besides listening to the speakers in an open discussion session.
- Raising awareness of everyone as to the full extent of the damaging effects of abandoned buildings
- Sharing and exchanging information and experience to prevent incidence of abandoned buildings
- Extending your knowledge as individual investors on your property investment risk
- Sharing information and experience on resuscitating stalled projects
- Raising awareness of all affected parties to agree to combine resources and jointly work towards resolving the problems
Who Should Attend
All concerned with the quality of their urban environment and those who are directly affected by the loss due to the abandonment should attend the Seminar. Others who would particularly benefit from this seminar include individual Property Investors, Property Developers and Lending Institutions, Financial Advisers, Professionals from the Construction and Building Industries, Architects, Town Planners, Engineers and Project Managers, Receivers and Administrators, Property Consultants, Managers and Real Estate Agents, officers from LocalAuthority and Public Agencies involved with building development, NGO’s and Consumer Associations.
