Buying selling or leasing Commercial Buildings.

If you are considering purchasing a commercial building (factory, office, shop, large building, small industrial unit, farm, etc) you may wish to consider finding an experienced Surveyor who will be able to lend an expert eye and help you develop a full understanding of what you are taking on.  In addition to carrying out a Survey or your Commercial Building an experienced Surveyor may also be able to help you complete your negotiations and ensure the best possible outcome.

If you are not buying a property but instead you are negotiating a possible lease, it may be useful to talk to a Building Surveyor with experience of negotiations on commercial buildings.  Commercial leases can sometimes be very straight forward but on other occasions they may have rather onerous conditions attached to them Whether you are a landlord or a prospective tenant you should not agree to a lease until you have a good understanding of the issues. You will need to feel comfortable that the lease is reasonable and that it is fair to both parties.

Before taking up a lease on a property you would normally have a Schedule of Condition undertaken by a Surveyor to document the condition of the property at a point in time.  This will be an important document, as you will need to refer to it later on when the lease comes to an end. Dependent on the terms of the lease, the tenant may have to pay for work to be carried out to ensure that the property is left in the same condition as it was when the lease started.

A landlord needs to ensure that a tenant looks after a property and keeps it in a good state of repair.  To help in this process a landlord can consider commissioning a Surveyor to produce an interim Schedule of Dilapidation midterm of the lease or at an appropriate point in time before the end of the lease.  This would give the tenant plenty of notice to carry out necessary maintenance rather than waiting until the end of the lease.  Once the end of the lease is reached a full Schedule of Dilapidation can be undertaken to identify and cost the necessary work required to return the building to an acceptable condition.  The tenant may undertake to have the necessary work carried out, or a financial payment may be agreed in lieu.  Again these negotiations can be quite complex and getting help from a Surveyor with commercial experience may be cost effective.

If you are about to renew an existing lease you may wish to have a Commercial Building Surveyor carry out a rent review of your property to get an independent view of a fair price.

If your building is not commercial but is in fact a residential property then you should request a set of estimates from Surveyors who specialise in Residential Building Surveys.

Helen, Bath
I would like to thank John, Rayna and their team for all the hard work and effort helping us through a minefield of getting plans passed for building a stone barn on green belt. Their expertise in guiding us through with advice on how to begin the applications and then carrying us through with their design plans and constantly being available when obstacles presented. This company was the second one we used after previously being rejected by the council and we would definately recommend their services and would make them our first port of call again should we need them. Again , thank you to the whole team for all your help....even after office hours John would always be available to discuss any issues we had. THANK YOU AGAIN! Fantastic job from start to finish.....well done..
Dean and Karen, Doncaster
Excellent price, done at short notice and a really good report done.
Mike, Gosport
Really easy to use and was impressed by the speed at which the businesses in the quote responded - in one case within minutes and virtually all by the end of the day. Also impressed that initial response emails were followed by phonecalls. Excellent
Mina, Wolverhampton
