A Commercial Building survey is designed to offer you a detailed appraisal of a building, usually but not exclusively prior to purchase or taking on a lease of the building.
Our survey will identify any major defects or problems and thus assist you in negotiating a reduced price, prevent you from proceeding with an unwise purchase or, in the case of a leasehold premises, enabling you to exclude major defects from your repairing obligations.
The type of report prepared will give the purchaser/tenant a detailed account of the current condition of the building and will advise on all aspects of repair and maintenance, which in the case of a tenant are likely to arise during the term of the Lease. The report will also include a budget costing for any repairs, which are required to the premises, thus allowing for possible renegotiation of the purchase price where applicable.
It can also outline and give an estimate of cost of the dilapidations liability of an exiting tenant in an assignment of lease situation.
