Building Surveys, Dilapidations & Project Consultancy

We have established links with Chartered Building Surveyors, Project Managers & Project Consultants.

We can therefore assist clients in helping secure quotes for a range of commercial property related matters.

In particular:

  • Pre – Acquisition Surveys and Due Diligence

These will help provide you with a greater understanding of what you are acquiring.

They will help identify any fundamental repair issues so you can then budget and plan appropriately.

Indicative cost estimates can often be provided as part of the pre – acquisition report to help you decide how best to move forward.

  • Preparing, advising & negotiating Dilapidations/wants of repair

Schedules of dilapidations are normally served on Tenants by their Landlord or the Landlord’s representatives to advise the Tenant on breaches of their repairing obligations under their lease.

They usually are served prior to a Tenant giving notice to vacate, but may also be served on an interim basis during the lease term if the Landlord considers there is the need to.This can often occur when a tenant is looking to assign or sublet the property.

The extent of Tenants repair necessary will be determined by the terms of the lease, statute and any specific plans the Landlord may have for the future of the property which may mitigate the extent of claim.
