Overview

This book covers partnerships in the broadest sense, presenting a critical account of the whole range of partnerships in property development.

The emphasis is on the relationship between developers and landowners, developers and funders, and the provision of public services through the use of private finance.

The authors draw on their own professional experience of running property partnerships and, with carefully researched case studies, present the 'insider' view, making a potentially dry and complex subject accessible and lively. 

The book moves beyond a theoretical overview and, by illuminating the reality of property partnerships shows for example, exactly how the government is procuring schools, hospitals and roads. 

This clear and objective analysis sets property partnerships in their economic and political contexts and will be of topical interest to surveyors and developers - in both private practice and local authorities - as well as to funders.  Students in surveying, estate management and real estate development will also find this a concise and authoritative guide.
