Distressed Property Portfolios

In 2010 Browne Asset Solutions Ltd was incorporated to provide a bespoke service to Banking Institutions, Receivers and other entities that were managing distressed properties portfolios. BAS quickly developed a blue chip client list that includes Bank of Ireland, AIB, Ulster Bank, IBRC, Danske Bank, Deloitte, Baker Tilly Ryan Glennon, KPMG, EY and Grant Thornton. In January 2013 the business of Walsh Design Group and Browne Asset Solutions Ltd merged. From early 2013 we have been engaged by investors and receivers on several projects to complete housing and commercial developments in order that values can be maximised by bringing individual or groups of units to the market.

We are currently working with a number of receivers on the following three projects:

  1. Ashmount, Silversprings: Completion of 30 houses and construction of 30 new houses.
  2. Harbour Heights, Passage West: Completion of 30 apartment and duplex units.
  3. Shanvogh, Ennis: Demolition of 3 partially-constructed apartment blocks and completion of 23 units.

In tandem with managing the design and construction of incomplete developments we engage with local authorities on legacy matters relating to  social and affordable housing obligations, development bonds, taking in charge and compliance with planning conditions and building regulations. We pride ourselves in providing a bespoke service and offer all necessary project management, cost control, architectural, engineering design and certification on completion.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you require advice or assistance in your attempts to secure, manage and optimise your property assets.
