Following his succesful How to Pass the APC: Essential Advice for General Practice Surveyors, Austen Imber's latest publication examines surveyors' work in practice. The case work is based mainly on examples of APC candidates' critical analysis, and is supported by additional guidance on the key issues arising in practice. In a clear, practical way the book covers the public, private and corporate sectors and enables graduates to understand the roles of the various participants in the property industry.
Subjects covered include investment valuation, development valuation/appraisal, profits valuation, the Red Book, lettings, sales, rent reviews, lease renewals, estate management, ratings, planning, development, regeneration, compulsory purchase, telecoms and insolvency. The hands-on style of the candidates' critical analysis, clearly shows the detailed reasoning behind the initial strategies and decisions throughout a case. The examples of APC interview questions and tasks for study are invaluable in encouraging graduates to consider further issues - including the many practical problems which graduates need to understand in order to succeed in practice and with their APC interview. Professional ethics are also represented within the cases featured.
The APC Casebook is an essential tool in preparing for the final assessment stage of the APC, as well as being an important reference source for candidates throughout their APC training.
