Often referred to as Due Diligence, building surveys are key surveys to provide a detailed understanding of the property, risks and potential costs, including what solutions are available. 

Prior to the acquisition of a property or lease, it is vital that a Building Survey informs your decision-making process. A pre-acquisition survey is a detailed technical report on the building or leased demise to assess risks that may have an impact on investment value or its suitability for your intended use.

Building Surveys are integral to any commercial property transaction as they assess the technical risks for either investors or occupiers.


A building survey report is normally prepared for a prospective purchaser or tenant of a property asset or portfolio. However, they can also be prepared for a building vendor to assist in the sale process. Either way, we tailor our reports to meet your specific needs from each transaction.

Whether you are fund, investor or tenant, our expert and comprehensive building survey report is invaluable.
