Professional Advisory Solutions

Property investors need specialists who are knowledgeable about current legislation and understand how to protect their interests in the legal landscape and commercial liabilities through fund monitoring. Our building surveyors are expertly placed to advise you. If you are seeking guidance regarding lease ends, lease breaks or general dilapidations, we offer an in-house multi-skilled team with expertise in M&E, cost management, environmental, dispute resolution and health and safety solutions, while also providing full legal and legislative support.

Manage risk from acquisition to disposal

Technical due diligence requires a thorough consideration of the entire ownership life cycle. Our multi-disciplinary team – consisting of building surveyors, MEP experts, fire consultants and sustainability advisors – can advise you on short-term capital spend and protect investor interests through each stage of ownership from acquisition to disposal.

Ensure legal and legislative compliance

It can be challenging to maintain a building’s compliance with today’s many and diverse regulatory standards, such as the Party Wall Act, Right to Light Act, Building Safety Act, Landlord and Tenant Act, Equality Act, and Regulatory Reform Order. We will provide you with expert reports, as well as help in understanding and interpreting the outcomes, to ensure your project’s legal and legislative compliance is professionally managed.

Understand and minimise liabilities

Dilapidation claims are often dealt with by way of settlement agreements, rather than court proceedings. With our unrivalled experience, we can provide expert advice and strategic solutions that will enable you to pre-empt and obtain the best dilapidations settlement agreement at either lease end or lease break to protect your commercial liabilities.

Monitor performance to unlock funding

Monitoring performance against specific goals is an essential component of property funding. To facilitate the drawdown of funds, it is critical to ensure that scope, schedules and budgets are on track at each stage of the project. Our project monitoring surveyors and subject matter experts have the knowledge to guide you through the complexities of property financing and provide confidence in drawdown.
