A condition survey is usually commissioned prior to the purchase of a building or prior to the signing of a lease. Its purpose is to establish the condition of the building so that any existing defects and their repair costs are identified prior to a commitment being made.
We point out the disadvantages of construction to identify possible future defects (although we cannot guarantee to identify all future defects).
We carry out the following types of survey:
- Property portfolio/investment - condition surveys of major commercial portfolios.
- Commercial, industrial or retail - full surveys are usually prior to purchase or lease.
- Pre-refurbishment surveys - usually for social housing or similar, where conversion or refurbishment is planned.
