Building Surveys provide information and advice essential to the decision-making process for prospective owners or occupiers of property about a building’s condition and potential, as well as the risks and liabilities they may inherit on completion of a property transaction. For investors, pre-acquisition surveys are integral to the due diligence process.
Recognising the increasing complexity of building services we also offer a comprehensive range of specialist M&E services in-house. In addition, many of our clients choose to ‘bolt-on’ additional services, such as planned maintenance schedules, condition records, building audits and reinstatement cost assessments which can be carried out in tandem with the survey.
Our particular expertise in landlord and tenant matters provides an added benefit when looking at tenant liabilities, whether for the prospective tenant or the investment purchaser. These dilapidation’s liabilities can have a significant effect on risk, and advice on the correct management is important.
Condition records benchmark the condition of a property at a given date. They are used to limit landlords’ and tenants’ repairing liabilities in leased property or provide a record to enable damage to be identified when construction works are undertaken by neighboring owners.
We can advise on the requirement for certificates of compliance and prepare certificates in the format recommended by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland.
We offer a full range of conveyancing certificates – from Certificates of Compliance with Planning Regulations, Building Regulations, Fire Safety Certification and for Certificate of Exemption from Planning.
