If you own the Freehold of a Commercial Property, or are a Long Leaseholder on a Full Repairing and Insuring Lease (FRI) the fabric of the building may well be your liability. Sadly, buildings do not always function perfectly. During their lifetime the effects of damp, attack from insects and changes in the way we use or have altered the property can create problems. Materials also wear out over time. Such problems ultimately manifest themselves as cracks in walls, mould growth, collapsing woodwork or the like.
A comprehensive and detailed report on your Commercial Property designed for purchasers of Freehold or Long Leaseholds.
A Building Condition Report is used to identify building defects in order that the clients' brief can be developed, for instance planned preventive and corrective repairs. It is usually a stepping stone in the decision process to drawing up a specification of works. It is suited to larger commercial or residential properties.
If buying a Commercial Property, you will want a Building Survey. If renting or leasing (either Landlord or Tenant) you will need a Schedule Of Condition and at the end of the lease or tenancy a Schedule Of Dilapidation and Terminal Schedule.
Whether it is repairs to a building, extension or routine maintenance, we will write a detailed specification for the necessary works including types of materials and the manner in which they are to be applied.
