The industrial estates where we regularly undertake commercial property inspections in North Lancashire and Cumbria include:
Owning property can be a lucrative business but the profitability of buying and leasing commercial premises relies on them staying in good condition. Our advice and inspection reports, such as Schedules of Dilapidations, Planned Preventative Maintenance programmes, Valuation Reports and Rent Reviews can assist landlords in the upkeep of their properties, reducing any potential repair bills and helping properties to achieve high occupancy rates. By keeping a close eye on the condition of their properties and taking proactive action to ensure that tenants keep up to date with their maintenance and repair obligations, we can ultimately help to maintain the value in a commercial property portfolio.
Taking on a commercial property as a tenant usually involves a significant risk of liability relating to upkeep and repairs. When appointed prior to the lease commencing, our team can prepare a Schedule of Condition that provides a detailed report on the property before taking occupancy. This, along with a pre-lease assessment, can help to limit the liability faced by the business later down the line. Lea Hough’s team can also work alongside tenants throughout the course of a tenancy to ensure that the property is well maintained. When approaching the end of a lease, our team can advise tenants in relation to works that may reduce any dilapidations claim they may face. When served a Schedule of Dilapidations, we work to reduce the liability faced and negotiate a more preferable settlement.
