WE ARE EXPERTS IN ALL STAGES OF THE PROPERTY CYCLE.

This ranges from acquisition to maintenance and lease termination and includes design, construction, building defects, construction law, landlord and tenant law, property management, financial performance, risk and health and safety. We have been applying this capability to the benefit of a wide range of commercial clients for many years.

Dilapidations

Whether you are landlord or tenant, dilapidations will be one of the most important issues you face during the term of a lease of commercial premises. Without repairs, the value of a landlord’s asset will diminish over time and, from the tenant’s perspective, unplanned dilapidations expenditure can significantly impact on business profitability.

A strategic and dynamic approach is essential to getting the best result for either party. We have developed a highly effective process for managing dilapidations claims, led by Paul French, who is a member of the RICS panel of Experts Specialising in Dilapidations. We operate a network of contractors and specialists to ensure we deliver the best results every time, and at a competitive price.

Expert Determinations in Dilapidations Disputes

Dilapidations disputes can become unnecessarily expensive for both parties. Determination by a single joint expert is a cost-effective form of Alternative Dispute Resolution, binding on both parties, which is particularly effective for smaller value disputes where costs can quickly become disproportionate to the value of the claim. Paul French is a member of RICS Panel of Experts specialising in dilapidations and is fully trained to implement RICS’ Dispute Resolution Scheme, as well as delivering expert determinations bespoke to the parties’ needs.

Pre-acquisition & Technical Due Diligence Reports

Our experience ranges from city centre office developments to small retail units and warehouses. Acquiring a freehold or leasehold interest in property requires the timely assessment of risks that might affect future liabilities and asset value. Leasehold premises in particular can involve the assignment of liabilities and wider service charge obligations. Our due diligence service can include structural assessment and building services review, as well as consideration of future use, dilapidations liabilities, adequacy of Landlord services etc. We work seamlessly with legal and agency teams to ensure all issues are adequately covered.

Insurance Reinstatement Assessments

Property is likely to be one of the most valuable assets you have and insuring its replacement value is essential. We use the latest rebuilding cost data to calculate the sum to be insured, using the RICS Guidance. Significant cost savings can be achieved in the knowledge that the property remains adequately covered should the unexpected happen.

CONTACT US TO FIND OUT HOW LITTLE IT COSTS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE ADEQUATELY COVERED.

From major office refurbishments to cyclical repair and replacement projects, we have the technical expertise to design the construction work needed. We use the latest CAD software and project programming tools to efficiently prepare tender documentation, and have developed a trustworthy network of contractors who we are able to recommend for the work. Our involvement in the preparation of tender documents ensures you get the best tender offers from contractors who are able to deliver exceptional value for money.
