Structural surveys are a thing of the past. These days our clients expect a greater depth of investigation prior to the purchase of a property, whether this is for occupation or investment purposes. These surveys are described as technical due diligence. As well as considering the general condition of the property, we can investigate a range of other issues as well as carrying out checks on the building such as building regulations compliance, occupancy capacity, maintenance costs, insurance reinstatement costs, adjacent construction proposals, party wall and easement issues.
This approach helps to minimise the number of unidentified risks an investor is exposed to when purchasing a property.
