Residential & Commercial Surveys
It is vital to be fully informed about the condition of a property and the cost of repairs before you make a purchase. This is of equal importance in commercial and residential properties. Pre-purchase building surveys provide the buyer with detailed information on condition which facilitates a balanced judgment of purchase price and suitability before it is too late.
There are various types of building surveys available, but it is important to remember that they should always be carried out by fully qualified professionals.
Surveys for buyers
It is important to know exactly what you will receive for your money before committing to buying a freehold property. We provide professional advice backed up by extensive experience in all types of buildings. We usually recommend a full structural survey for pre-1900 properties and building surveys for younger structures.
Surveys for landlords and tenants
If you take on a commercial lease, you are likely to be responsible for repairs. A building survey provides full information about what you are taking on. A schedule of condition may save you from committing to more than necessary.
Repair clauses are enforced by a schedule of dilapidations. We can act on behalf of the landlord or tenant in negotiations.
