Pre-lease
Advice

you can trust innes england

Our team of RICS chartered building surveyors provide lease advisory services for occupiers in all sectors across the UK.

We have a multi-disciplinary approach to our pre-lease advisory service and can tap into our own in-depth market data as well as our in-house highly experienced professional services team to add value to what we deliver for our customers.

If you intend to lease a commercial building, you will be aware that the onus is on you to undertake maintenance and repairs to the property, so before costs can be calculated or a lease agreement negotiated, getting pre-lease advice is a good idea to save you costs during the lease term and when the inevitable dilapidations claim is received at lease expiry.

But beyond advice, a Schedule of Condition documenting the condition of the building before the lease begins can be a valuable tool in limiting a tenant’s liability for repairs and reducing exit costs.

The Challenge: The property owners faced challenges due to a lack of experience in service charge management. They required a managing agent who could not only handle this aspect but also actively market a vacant retail unit within the property.
