Key Team Members: Ian Golbourn
Acting on behalf of a wide range of Investor, Landlord and Tenant clients, we provide a tailored due diligence building survey service, offering succinct, detailed survey reports, across all property sectors and building types.
We undertake pre-acquisition building surveys for Freehold and Leasehold purchases. We also produce Vendor surveys in connection with sales, and for bank/lending re-financing purposes. We have extensive experience in coordinating and undertaking large portfolio instructions.
We are not just limited to the UK and undertake International due diligence instructions across Europe also.
Our reports are easy to read and written in clear English, providing clear, concise commercial advice. Executive summaries at the head of our reports provide a snapshot of the main pertinent issues, with traffic light ratings allowing findings to be placed into context.
Our reports identify problems and solutions, with large quality photographs documented within the report, clearly explaining each issue. Major anticipated repair costs are identified, and categorised to state where responsibility lies. In addition to highlighting building defects, we provide summary comment on statutory compliance issues and deleterious materials, and state where specific key legal enquiries or further investigations are required.
When acting for Investors, we always assess ‘added value’ angles, analysing opportunities for increasing floor space for example. Tenants often have additional requirements to defect analysis; how they will occupy the space, access and use buildings. We always look at the bigger picture.
We can co-ordinate and manage your entire due diligence process, recommending and advising on the appointment of specialist reporting, and capturing their findings within our report. We aim to provide a ‘one stop shop’ service. We always aim to inspect a premises within 48 hours of instruction, and report within 5-7 working days.
By choosing Colliers International you can be sure that you will receive the best advice. As a purchaser, our aim is to ensure that we identify all issues that should be taken into account when agreeing a purchase price. As a Tenant, your potential liabilities will be clearly identified, with practical guidance given on how best to you protect your interests.
