Transitional Study (Developer Turn-Over Report)

Ensuring a Smooth Transition with Ray Engineering Inc.’s Professional Transitional Study.

What is a Transitional Study/Developer Turn-Over Report?

A Transitional Study, also known as a Developer Turn-Over Report, is a critical assessment performed during the handover of control from a developer to a homeowner’s association. This study examines common elements, identifying any design, construction, or code-related issues that could impact the association’s future management and financial well-being. These studies are often performed in conjunction with a Capital Reserve Analysis.
