Commercial Property

Our commercial services include photographic schedules of condition and pre purchase surveys

Our schedules of condition are a detailed recording of a property’s condition to help tenants (and landlords) avoid expensive and unnecessary complications at the end of a commercial lease.

Commercial schedules of condition can be used by both tenants and landlords to accurately record the condition of a property when entering a new lease.

The document provides a forensic look at all aspects of the property, recording issues as minor as worn carpets, or paint splatters on doorframes, with accompanying photographs. There can be no disputing the outgoing condition if condition at the beginning of the lease is fully recorded.

Our Commercial Pre Purchase Surveys

The RICS Home Survey Level 2 and our own Concise Survey give you peace of mind when buying your new home and helps avoid unexpected repair costs further down the line.

These surveys are ideal for ensuring the commercial property you intend to purchase is in a sound condition for doing so.

Schedules of Condition provide an greed benchmark

Agreement by both parties on how the property should be left at the end of the tenancy

The purpose of the Schedule of Condition is to protect both the landlord and the tenant from potentially expensive repair costs.

At the beginning of a new lease, both parties agree on the general condition of the property and how it should be returned when the lease ends. This is documented within a written condition report with corresponding photos.

Upon vacation of the property, a second inspection is carried out by an agent of the landlord to ensure the agreed conditional benchmark has been met.

For landlords, a schedule of condition insures the property is well maintained. For tenants, is helps avoid any unnecessary repair costs and ensures they are not obligated to return the property in a better state of repair than it was at the start of the lease.

Much like buying a house, it is advisable to also get a pre-purchase survey on commercial property.

We provide advice and guidance on the property’s construction, any urgent or significant defects that happen to be present, or whether any further investigations are required prior to purchase.
