Building Surveys
We can offer you a full range of Building Surveys for all types of commercial property.
Our reports will provide you with clear and comprehensive advice. We can meet tight commercial timeframes and our reports will provide key Information in relation to the asset.

The condition of a building often requires recording, either in relation to a new lease, prior to refurbishment or because of alteration works being undertaken on adjacent buildings. This document can then act as a reference point over the building's condition.

We can offer the following types of survey:

  • Acquisition Surveys
  • Due Diligence Reports
  • Vendors' Surveys
  • Review of Existing Reports
  • Portfolio Acquisitions
  • Condition Surveys
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Schedules of Condition
  • Approval of Schedules
  • Assessment of Dilapidations Liability
  • Planned Preventative Maintenance Schedules

Preventative Maintenance
Preventative Maintenance reduces the long-term costs of owning a building.

We can carefully plan a Preventative Maintenance schedule for a building as we are able to anticipate the maintenance requirement's of each element of a building and therefore increase their lifespan.

Works will be considered to minimise and spread the cost to make it more manageable. This becomes particularly important when costs are recoverable from tenants under a service charge agreement.

Reinstatement Cost Assessment
Used for insurance purposes, a Reinstatement Cost Assessment advises on the anticipated cost of re-constructing your building in the event of damage by an insured risk.

If a building is only insured for half of what it would cost to rebuild, the payment will be half of the loss. This applies even if your claim is well below the sum insured; as a building owner it's assumed that you have insured the difference with the premium you saved. Although, if your building is over-insured the reverse doesn't apply and there's no profit, simply a wasted over-payment of premium. Therefore it's essential that your reinstatement cost is calculated correctly. You'll be pleased to hear that we have considerable experience preparing Reinstatement Cost Assessments, specialising in the assessment and management of Portfolio Reinstatement Cost Assessments, whatever the type or size of your property or properties.
