The execution of construction works is preceded by a whole complex of preparatory actions, such as determination of development conditions, preparation of designs or obtainment of relevant administrative decisions. All actions intended to carry out a development project, from the determination of the development conditions to the commissioning of the project, are called a property development process. The purpose of this memorandum is to view a property development process from the investor’s perspective with identification of potential risks for the execution of a project. This memorandum concerns a construction process related to the execution of commercial projects, and it does not encompass simplified procedures used in the case of small projects or buildings constructed for one’s own use, such as single family houses.
