Pre-acquisition surveys provide you with confidence

If you are planning to buy or lease a commercial property, you need to first determine the condition of the building in order to establish any potential works and associated costs. Understanding this before completing on the purchase or finalising the leasing agreement is essential, as it allows you to buy or lease with full confidence in what is required.

This is where Perry Hill Chartered Surveyors can help. Our team of skilled surveyors calls on years of experience and local property knowledge. We will provide you with a detailed report on any given property, including commentary on the structure, building fabric and an assessment as to the condition outlining recommendations for any wants of repair.

Our pre-acquisition surveys allow you to make an informed decision on the property you are considering acquiring, helping you to understand investment potential, as well as providing a basis for negotiation on price.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a pre-acquisition survey?

Pre-acquisition surveys are often commissioned by investors, purchasers and business occupiers looking to understand whether the commercial property they are interested in acquiring is in good condition and is suitable for their requirements. Our survey provides details not only on the condition of the property, but also the extent of potential repairs/remedial works.

What does a pre-acquisition survey involve?

A pre-acquisition survey is a thorough and in-depth analysis of the condition, risks, and liabilities of a commercial property. The survey will provide details on the structural integrity of the building and make comment on works that are required or will be required in the future.

Do you offer other commercial property surveys?

Yes, we offer Dilapidations surveys as well as Schedule of Condition reports which can be ideal for landlords or tenants before the beginning of a lease.
