Building Surveys & Due Diligence
Building Surveys are undertaken for a variety of reasons including for the assessment of overall condition of a property, through to investigating causes of movement, cracking, leaking, dampness and so on.
Due diligence and pre-acquisition surveys are usually undertaken where advice is sought by a client on the condition of the building fabric prior to an investment or purchase of a property. That investment may be an outright freehold or long leasehold purchase or it may be a short or medium term lease investment. Irrespective of the nature of the investment an assessment of risk is of paramount importance and usually this type of survey would also include the identification of defects & remedial works, advice on any proposals / planned alterations and advice in connection with on-going maintenance liabilities.
