Commercial property maintenance inspections
Helping you preserve the quality and value of the property
If you own or rent out commercial property, Lewis Chartered Surveyors can help you protect the quality, fabric and value of the building by conducting regular inspections of the premises.
Our thorough inspections can assess issues such as whether:
- Your tenants are adequately maintaining the property in line with their Lease covenants.
- Any health and safety issues that have suddenly arisen, which you need to address – for example fire safety and access issues.
- Any natural events (such as storms, excessive heat or cold) have created problems in the building structure and features.
- All services in the property (such as water and drainage) are being managed and maintained correctly.
Our inspections can alert you to any breaches of the lease, for example if a tenant has conducted non-approved alterations. We would also flag any changes which may have a bearing on your insurance for the buildings.
Furthermore, clients use our reports to schedule repairs and maintenance activities to be covered by service charges for the premises. The reports can help to limit the extent of dilapidations, which then need to be addressed at the end of a lease.
