Building Surveying

Pre-acquisition surveys and reports have evolved significantly in recent years. The condition of the property must be accurately assessed and recorded. In addition however the assessment should also take due cognisance of investors’ concerns, highlighting possible future risks and offering views on how they might be mitigated. The importance of environmental impact and future limitations inherent in building designs need to be understood and documented prior to purchase to help inform investment decisions.

· Pre-acquisition reports
· Vendors reports
