Commercial Surveys

MHA undertake a wide range of commercial surveys on many building types including industrial premises, office and institutional buildings. Our bespoke reporting format allows us to provide the client with a concise overview of the building, together with any detail required to negotiate a lower rental or sale price.

In order to provide the best possible service, we utilise both traditional access equipment such as cherry pickers and also more recently we have utilised drone technology to not only view large roof areas in real time, but also to provide the client with 4K screen shots and a video of the footage to append to the lease by way of a schedule of condition.

We often undertake Schedules of Condition on commercial premises prior to occupation in order to record current conditions of building elements and finishes in order to limit the tenant's liability with respect to on-going dilapidations. These are generally a written schedule supplemented with a digital cache of photos.
