Our survey reports deliver robust, concise and commercially minded advice about your intended acquisition.
A thorough understanding of a property’s condition, challenges, and opportunities is essential to a client when acquiring a property. Our advice enables informed decisions to be made by providing technical due diligence that considers the property from various angles. We take into account what the use of the property will be and how the clients operational or investment criteria fit within any constraints presented by the building under consideration.
The basis of our approach to pre-acquisition surveys stems from our MD’s experience in asset management from an operational and investment perspective. We can look at a building and understand the drivers affecting an acquisition then support the client’s decision with relevant and focused advice.
The contents of a pre-acquisition report will always be defined by the client’s requirement for the individual property but where appropriate we provide budget costings to assist price negotiations, headline risk identification, and a summary of legal considerations which can only be appreciated from a physical inspection of the building.
Over the past few years we have provided pre-acquisition advice on modern office buildings, Listed property, development opportunities and retail units. we’ve inspected individual properties, multi-let space, and investment portfolios. In fact, if it’s a built asset, we can inspect and report on it.
The pre-cursor to every inspection comprises a brief with the client to enable us to understand objectives, headline criteria, and timescales. We’ll identify and engage with other consultants relevant to that particular acquisition, and ensure that their advice is reported in a manner that is consistent and relevant. Above all, we will provide the client with advice that is in line with their aspirations for each property.
