We employ Chartered Building Surveyors with over 20 years experience in long term maintenance planning and building inspections to provide the technical and strategic advice required in preparing our Long-term maintenance plans. Our surveyors provide a professional approach and bring with them a clear understanding of the impacts of deferring maintenance expenditure and how to manage maintenance risk to enable better asset management decisions and improve building performance. Our software provides a superior report and financial planning model that allows us to meet the clients requirements without overlooking important financial factors such as inflation, interest and planned special assessments. The end result is a LTMP that allows the body corporate to accurately forecast their long-term requirements and evenly distribute sinking fund contributions over current and future owners.

What is a Reserve Study & LTMP?

A Reserve Study is an essential tool for assessing and planning the future maintenance requirements for your properties assets.

A Long-term maintenance plan will:

  • Help you maintain the value of your investment.
  • Enable you to budget appropriately.
  • Ensure maintenance is undertaken in a methodical, planned way.
  • Ensure that costs are distributed fairly among multiple owners.
  • Avoid large unexpected costs.
  • Help a Body Corporate to meet its legal obligations to maintain the value of the property.

Reserve Studies have two components:

Physical Analysis – involving:
Compiling an accurate inventory list of included assets.
Determining the useful life of each asset, and the inflated cost to repair and/or replace them in future years when required.

Financial Analysis – involving
Assessing current reserve fund levels and annual contributions.

The Reserve Study brings together these two components within the LTMP to structure a new Recommended Funding Plan.
