Chartered Surveyors – South Lakes / South Lakeland

Lea Hough Chartered Surveyors is a well-established firm of Surveyors in the North West of England. Our location just over the border in Lancaster means we are ideally placed to serve property owners and those involved in property transaction in the South Lakes and South Cumbria area.

Commercial Properties in South Lakes

Lea Hough is able to advise on a variety of matters for a wide range of commercial property types.

We are commonly appointed by commercial clients seeking assistance in relation to a commercial property transaction, be it a purchase of a property, or regarding a lease. We act for buyers, investors, landlords and tenants. We inspect buildings and prepare the various reports to assist in the process, such as Pre-Lease Assessments, Schedules of Condition, Pre-acquisition Surveys, Commercial Valuations, and Dilapidations reports.

During the course of our work, we also frequently advise on other property matters including the project management, renovation or upgrading of commercial properties. We undertake contract administration, Planning drawings, development monitoring, planned maintenance works and we provide advice in relation to Listed Buildings.

Our Chartered Building Surveyors are also well-placed to provide advice and oversee works on public sector or council run buildings in the South Lakes and South Lakeland areas.

Residential Properties / Landowners in South Lakes

Our team are able to assist property owners of large residential homes / second homes / guest houses in the Lake District with full Building Survey Reports; providing them with all the information they may require to be able to proceed with a transaction with peace of mind.

The nature of the landscape in the South Lakes means many of the clients we work with have rural properties or land. Our team has a specialist Land and Development team that are able to assist landowners who are looking at the options available to them. Where land has development potential, we are able to represent the landowner, project-managing the process through the various stages to achieve Planning permission. Once achieved, we are then able to act on behalf of landowners during the negotiation process, helping to select the most appropriate developer and oversee the sale of the land.

School Building Consultancy for Schools in South Lakeland

Lea Hough has a team dedicated to advising schools building and maintenance projects, including obtaining funding for such works. We have an established reputation in the education sector and have helped many academy schools, small Multi Academy Trusts, Free Schools and sixth form colleges in the North West to obtain funding including via the annual funding round for the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF), along with other sources such as SEEF, SALIX and Urgent Capital Support funding.

“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.”
