We use our wealth of experience in conjunction with the latest software to deliver projects successfully, on time, within budget and to the quality you expect.

Dilapidations

We are experts in dilapidations and provide both landlords and tenants with strategic advice in respect of lease termination and dilapidations liabilities.

Dilapidations principally concern a tenant’s failure to conform to certain express and/or implied obligations within their lease, thereby committing a breach of covenant.

We work within the strict guidelines of the dilapidations protocol set out by the Property Litigation Association and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Acting for landlords and tenants, we offer professional advice to assist in determining a fair assessment of loss and minimise overall costs for our client.

We are happy to meet with you to provide initial advice and budget cost with regard to any dilapidations claim.

Technical Due Diligence Surveys

As Chartered Building Surveyors, we are specialist in undertaking Technical Due Diligence surveys for prospective purchasers or occupiers.

We produce survey reports which provide essential advice about a building’s condition. We tailor our reports your objectives and requirements including issues such as material testing, insurance, warranties and alterations.

Planned Preventative Maintenance Surveys

We are able to offer detailed strategic advice on the maintenance of your asset, we use bespoke reporting formats to produce different levels of schedule to suit your exact requirements and delivered in your preferred reporting format.

Planned Preventative Maintenance Programmes (PPM) identify and quantify a programme of works to the fabric and services of a building over a prescribed period of time – usually 5-20 years. An accurate PPM survey provides information to enable the preparation of a bespoke plan of action to ensure that a building’s condition (and therefore its value as an asset) is preserved, or even increased.

Recognising that reliable cost estimations are vital for ongoing budget forecasting, we are able to provide detailed schedules of works or broad cost overviews, tailored to suit your requirements.

We base our costs on the latest industry-recognised pricing data and our extensive, knowledge and experience across the commercial, industrial and residential sectors.
