Data and legal documentation is your biggest asset when managing millions of dollars in the timberland asset class. And thanks to due diligence during the property acquisition, when the deal is done, it’s done, right? Wrong. Enter unintended consequences; consequences such as errors or duplicative records, which can lead to disputes, appeals and corrections. At best, they’re a nuisance. At worst, they’re catastrophic.
The supposed remedy, however, is a mishmash of multi-agency legal effort – most of which are in the form of documentation books left quietly sitting untouched on a shelf, in a drawer, or buried under stacks of files and folders. Add in outdated parcel data and legal documents, time-consuming documentation upkeep, and documentation incompatibility with operational systems, and it’s easy to see why timberland asset managers and investors need current and accurate documentation.
