Due diligence building surveys for commercial, health, public and industrial properties – all you need to know about condition and statutory compliance

We view each acquisition holistically, having years of experience advising in most sectors and understanding each sector’s property and commercial needs

Surveys of offices, shops, hotels, care homes and industrial units are undertaken for investors, leaseholders and SIPPs.

We understand that funders, institutions, investors, occupiers and vendors all have differing needs.  We will establish your specific requirements and tailor our service to exceed them – whether they relate to defects, deleterious materials, backlog maintenance, proposed refurbishment, landlord and tenant dilapidations recovery, insurances or warranties.

Our reports emulate all the very best in the marketplace. We advise a purchaser or leaseholder on the condition of a building and the surrounding land, together with the risks that you are effectively purchasing or leasing.

Signature know exactly what is needed to appraise you of not just condition, but the additional potential issues surrounding:

  • inherent construction issues
  • statutory obligations
  • health and safety risks
  • future maintenance liabilities

We have a team of specialist consultants who provide detailed assessments of building services, cladding, environmental matters and structures, where required.

An Executive Summary of Principal Considerations is provided within 24 hours of the inspection.
