When commissioning a commercial building survey, always make sure it includes all the relevant technical due diligence AND focuses on advice which is specific to
your particular situation.
Any report you commission for your business should save or make you money in the longer term. It can
only do that if it informs you of all pertinent facts. That’s why it needs to be prepared with care and attention to detail by a
qualified RICS Building Surveyor.
Avoid any survey that follows a standard template. You need a report that:
- Addresses your main concerns as a property owner, purchaser or investor
- Documents these concerns AND any other factors you need to consider
- Makes recommendations to ensure you realise the full benefit of your investment
Whatever the purpose or scope, building surveys and technical due diligence of commercial property should be based on careful assessment of YOUR needs.
‘Technical due diligence’, in this context, is the process of investigating a property’s physical characteristics to evaluate its risks and advantages. Its
purpose is to put you in a position to gauge the building’s suitability (or otherwise) for your intended use.
