Building Surveys can be undertaken on any property you propose to purchase to ascertain whether it is structurally sound, fit for purpose and its general condition.
This report can be used as a basis for re-negotiating the purchase price if required, or as a reference for future maintenance expenditure.
Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 there is a legal duty to manage the risk from asbestos in all non domestic premises and the communal areas to domestic premises. In order to comply with this legal requirement you require an asbestos survey by a ‘competent’ person. Michael J Redmond BSc (Hons) MRICS can undertake the survey, take samples of suspect materials, produce a comprehensive report assessing the risks and advising on the management of the risk.
Schedules of Condition
If you are entering into a new lease for commercial premises we would recommend that you have a full photographic and descriptive Schedule of Condition carried out before occupation. This will limit your liabilities in respect of the repairs required to be undertaken at the termination of the lease if appended to it.
Schedules of Dilapidations
This issue is a complicated one and our reports can be prepared to support either the tenant or the Landlord.
The Landlord needs to ensure that his property is maintained correctly in accordance within the repairing covenants within the lease. An interim schedule can be prepared to focus the attention of the tenant on existing problems, hopefully before the property falls into disrepair.
A final schedule of dilapidations, with costings, will identify items of disrepair to be made good by the tenant in order to protect the asset value to the landlord at the expiration of the lease. If the tenant has not complied with his repairing obligations, the schedule can be used to form the basis of a financial claim by the Landlord.
Landlords can sometimes present large dilapidations claims at or very near to the expiry of a lease. It is important that the tenant ensures that the schedule only includes items of disrepair relating to the repairing obligations of the lease and that these are priced correctly. We can negotiate on behalf of tenants.
