Commercial Building Surveys, Custom-Built to Your Requirements

Bespoke Commercial Property Surveys in London & the South East

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:

  1. Addresses your main concerns as a property owner, purchaser or investor 
  2. Documents these concerns AND any other factors you need to consider
  3. 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.

Get the Right Commercial Surveying Advice for Your Business

Perhaps you need advice on the correct market value before buying? Or to assess particular elements of the property’s structure and fabric for your use? Poor surveying can mislead you as a buyer, seriously jeopardising the value of your investment.


If you’re buying, selling, letting or renting a commercial building, you may be concerned about the extent of renovations or maintenance needed on a property. Or perhaps about your dilapidations liability at the end of a lease. Or about staying compliant when making alterations.


For both property purchases and construction projectsyou’ll need to take account of myriad factors, not just the obvious structural aspects of a building, 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  

Custom-Built Property Surveys for Peace of Mind

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 need.


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.
