The use and costs of real estate are increasingly important in the operations of businesses with a sizeable real estate portfolio. The leaders of these companies aim to achieve cost-efficiency and manage their assets more and more effectively, and the best way to accomplish this is through a real estate portfolio. Restructuring or consolidating a company’s assets is a complex, costly and time-consuming procedure. However, it is even more important that the tasks required fall outside the scope of activities and experience of the parties concerned. In such cases, we involve our most experienced consultants in the project. Our real estate specialists have the practical skills and experience that our clients need to evaluate and assess the available options, whether they are the owners, users, creditors or debtors of the real estate assets in question. As part of our consulting work, we review the existing assets, and their usefulness and usability. We develop strategies together with the company’s management, and make suggestions on the steps to follow, depending on the company’s needs and expectations. This service is closely related to two other specialty areas: real estate financing, and facility management consulting.

Mortgage banks specialize in granting mortgage loans backed by real estate. Mortgage banks primarily raise the financial resources they need to fund their lending activity by issuing mortgage bonds to be sold to investors. Mortgage bonds are debt securities that typically have a long maturity. They are secured by interest and principal repayments of the mortgage loans provided by the mortgage bank (collateral), and liquid assets allocated by the bank to increase coverage (additional collateral). However, mortgage bonds are ultimately collateralized with the real estate holdings on the basis of which the mortgage loan is provided. In the mortgage lending process and the issue of mortgage bonds, property auditors play a special role. A property auditor, who is fully independent of the mortgage bank, ensures the availability of collateral for the mortgage bonds. Property auditors are also responsible for inspecting and evaluating property holdings, and auditing related land register records.
