Commercial property advice – Bury

Bury is home to a wide spectrum of commercial property, varying from both large and small retail units to industrial sites, office buildings and hospitality venues. Regardless of the type of property, Lea Hough is able to advise on a variety of matters.

Most typically, commercial clients seek our advice in relation to a commercial property transaction, be it a purchase or disposal of a property, or regarding a lease. We frequently act for both landlords and tenants in this regard; providing expert advice in the form of Pre-Lease Assessments, Schedules of Condition, Pre-acquisition Surveys, Dilapidations advice and Valuations. Our primary role is to protect our clients from unnecessary exposure to liabilities and our advice can often prove invaluable in doing this.

Other property matters we are approached to assist with include the project management, renovation or upgrading of commercial properties, contract administration, drawings, development monitoring, Listed Building advice and planned maintenance works.

Lea Hough is one of the few firms of Chartered Surveyors in the North West that focus on the area of education, in particular, applications for funding for school building and improvement projects. Our team have advised many academy schools, free schools, sixth form colleges and small Multi Academy trusts on sources of funding, also managing the preparation and submission of funding bids for CIF, SEEF, SALIX, SCA and other rounds of funding that may be applicable. We have a particularly high success rate for obtaining funding via these routes.

We are also able to advise schools in Bury about maintaining their buildings and estates, working to help prepare plans for managing a programme of works by budget and priority.

Always nice to receive a good review from a happy client!


“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
