The Council needs to appoint specialist property consultants to advise in a specialist property transaction. There are few consultants with the necessary experience and expertise in this specialist field. Lambert Smith Hampton have in excess of 25 years of experience in dealing with this specialist area and are best placed to advice the Council. The consultant fee structure is success related and as such fees will only be incurred in the event that a property transaction proceeds. The estimated fee is £35,000.
The decision is therefore to waive contract standing orders in the appointment of specialist property consultants to ensure that the Council receives the appropriate advice, expertise and experience in this matter.
