Full Building Survey - Public House & Residential

If you are considering purchasing or leasing a public house or residential property, it's vital that you know the scale of the liability involved with the property prior to entering into any agreements.

 

By commissioning a UK Surveyors Building Survey you can help minimize any risks and costs due to expensive repair works.


When you have a copy of the lease agreement, you will see that there are a number of clauses within it that will need to be adhered to. These clauses will include maintenance, repairs and the redecoration of the property.


These clauses are very important as they can cost you a lot of money!


As a tenant, usually, you will be responsible for all of the internal and external decorations within a set period of time; also, you may find that you are responsible for some or all of the repair works to the property.


If you take on a property that is in a poor state of repair and within the lease it states, that the property is to be kept in a good standard of repair, and you have not negotiated other wise, you will be liable for these repairs.


This does appear to be unfair, however, unless agreed by both parties, the condition of the property when you took on the lease is irrelevant; you will still have to put all of the repairs right at the end of the lease.


The Key Benefit of a UK Surveyors Building Survey is that once complete, the survey can be used by the client to negotiate the lease offering the client added peace of mind.
