Consent and Approval

Don't Pay Attorney Fees for Admin Work: Property Works' Consent and Approval Service

Landlord consent and approvals: they're a necessary step in portfolio transactions from purchase and sale, to refinancing and mergers and acquisitions. Obtaining a landlord’s signature may seem like an easy ask, but underestimating the time and relationship management skills required, can tax in-house and outside counsel resources and cost you twice as much as it could.


The Problem: You're Paying Attorney Fees for Administrative Tasks

Companies taking on a landlord consent and approval process in-house, may be startled by how significant an operational undertaking it is. It makes sense that you would gladly pay someone else—anyone else—to take over this process so your team can focus on the daily operations. Unfortunately, when under pressure to get landlord consents handled, the first option many turn to is also the most expensive: attorneys. However, while obtaining landlord consents does require a certain level of expertise, it is primarily hours of project management and administrative work that does not have to be done by an attorney, nor at an attorney's hourly rates. Property Works coordinates with your attorney teams to manage the administrative and time-intensive aspects of landlord consent projects so the legal and business teams can focus on the deal. By bringing in operations support through a partner like Property Works, you can save your time and money pursuing the necessary landlord approvals with an experienced landlord liaison working on your behalf.

How It Works

  • Phase 1: Setting Expectations

  • Our team works closely with the client to understand the project scope in detail, from timelines to deliverables and beyond, ensuring total clarity.

  • Phase 2: Preparing Communication

  • We load all client contact info into our cloud-based, custom software platform, which also tracks the project throughout all stages. We work with clients to craft messaging that maximizes the potential for swift signature delivery, and handle the busy work of all landlord letters and materials.

  • Phase 3: Following Up

  • Once landlord packets are received, our team tenaciously executes a concentrated, phased, and thorough follow-up plan, complete with one-to-one contact, swift escalation of any concerns that must be handled by the client, and regular client meetings to closely monitor project status.

  • Phase 4: Delivering and Debriefing

  • Of course, all executed hardcopy and electronic signatures are delivered to the client in a timely manner, but in addition to landlord approvals, we provide clients with a completed list of all landlord contact information, which has been continually updated throughout the process, as well as any landlord issues that were unrelated to consent and approvals, but noted for client attention.
