Lea Hough Chartered Surveyors are proud to have developed an excellent reputation within the area of commercial property work, particularly within Lancashire, having worked alongside businesses of all sizes and sectors, for over thirty years.
Our team are able to offer commercially focussed advice; recognising that in many cases, profitability and affordability remain key factors when it comes to making any decisions.
A large amount of our work within the commercial sector is generated in relation to property transactions, such as sales and purchases of commercial property and also at the start / end of leases.
We are able to assist commercial property owners, prospective buyers, landlords and tenants in regard to all services relating to commercial property portfolios, such as completing the necessary investigations on a property to help safeguard their financial investment. We are also appointed by banks, financial institutions, pension funds, property companies and professional advisors in respect of freehold and leasehold land and property.
Depending on the nature of the work involved, our services can either be obtained on an individual one-off survey basis, or where the project is of significant size and involves several steps, some companies choose to appoint us to undertake several aspects of the work, taking the project through from inception to completion.
The work we are appointed to undertake in relation to commercial property can vary far and wide, but some of the most commonly accessed services we offer include:
- Schedules of Condition
- Schedules of Dilapidations and dilapidations advice for landlords
- Defending dilapidations claims, for tenants
- Pre-acquisition Building Surveys
- Pre-lease Assessments
- Commercial Property Valuations
- Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programmes
- Project management
- Rent reviews and renewal advice
- Budget cost estimates
- Planning and Building Regulations advice
Our team have established strong connections with other commercial professional advisers over the years and are able to liaise directly with others involved where this benefits the client.
