Building and Acquisitions
Building and Acquisition
The acquisition of property for either occupation or investment purposes requires careful thought by the prospective owner. Allcott Commercial Building Surveying offer services ranging from Technical Due Diligence to Stock Condition Surveys for industrial, commercial, hotel, leisure, retail and residential portfolios allowing our clients to make an informed investment decision, having considered the risks and cost implications associated with committing to a purchase or any term of tenancy agreement.
Acquisition Surveys and Technical Due Diligence
The building survey is only part of the data required when considering property acquisition. However its significance must not be underestimated as it enables the risks associated with the building which may affect the delivery of a service to be assessed.
We adopt a flexible and innovative approach to property acquisition as we understand that no two clients’ requirements are the same. Our services are offered on a bespoke basis to meet a client’s specific needs when acquiring both freehold and leasehold property.
Acquisition and Due Diligence surveys focus on a building’s structure, fabric, finishes and systems, commenting on items of nonconformity, defects, lifecycles, health and safety risks and evaluation of relevant statutory approvals and consents.
We look to provide advice that will alert you to issues that will affect the
building both as an investment or asset. We advise on issues such as:
- Suitability for fit-out Space utilisation
- Ease of sub division Security
- Service charge levels DDA issues
- Compliance with Statute Tenancy issues
- Planned maintenance
