Construction, maintenance and repair of commercial buildings shouldn’t be difficult. Would you like yours to be simpler?
Understanding what’s going on with the condition of your building is key.
So if you’d like professional input getting to grips with, for example:
- renovations or maintenance,
- defects analysis,
- planning & building regs,
- dilapidations liability,
- dispute resolution, and more
I’d like to help.
When commissioning a commercial condition survey, make sure it includes all relevant technical due diligence, as well as giving specific advice for your 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 the facts. And the surest way of doing that is
to have it 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 does three things:
- Addresses your main concerns as a property owner, purchaser or leaseholder.
- Documents your concerns, as well as 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 specific needs.
‘Technical due diligence’, in this context, is the process of investigating a property’s physical condition to evaluate its risks and advantages. Its purpose is to put you in the best position to
gauge the building’s suitability (or otherwise) for your intended use.

Perhaps you need advice on correct market value before buying or leasing? Or to assess particular elements of a property’s structure and fabric? Poor surveying can mislead you as a buyer or
leaseholder, seriously jeopardising the value of your investment.
When involved in negotiations for a commercial building, you may be concerned about the extent of renovations or maintenance needed. Or about your dilapidations liability at the end of a
lease. Or about how to remain compliant when making alterations.
For both property purchases & leases and building projects, you’ll need to take account of a range
of factors, not just the obvious structural aspects, including:
- specialist construction techniques
- building services, such as mechanical and electrical systems, fire protection, etc
- insurance options
- environmental issues and sustainability rating
- building compliance and other legal requirements, and more
Qualified, experienced building surveyors advise on all these factors and more, as well as construction methods and materials and how to assess them, of course. They will also be up to date with
building legislation, including how a property may be repaired or adapted, and can customise your survey so you get precisely the information you
Crucially, the best surveyors know the full consequences of poor structural integrity – and the potentially huge costs, in both time and money, if things go wrong. It makes sense to get
the right professional advice. Get started now. Call 07967 254296.
