We have all specialised in Residential 'Managed Properties' for all of our professional lives, and as such we fully appreciate the intricacies and issues involved in working within the confines of Leases and Landlord & Tenant Legislation, and as such we consider that we are very well placed to advise either Landlords or Leaseholders on various issues, including:

Building Surveys:

Numerous various instructions used to assist with:

purchase of properties and valuation

identification and remedy of defects

possibility of alteration, extension, redevelopment etc

recording of condition of properties at start and end of lease, works to adjacent areas

Landlords' Licence:

Numerous instructions to consider the alteration of Leasehold properties both advising Landlords on what works can be permitted and how these can be limited and controlled , leading to the preparation of a 'Licence', and advising the Leaseholders on the same issues and negotiating with Landlords and assisting with design.

Insurance Valuations:

Calculation of Insurance Re-instatement valuations to ensure- not over insured and thus overpaying premium, not under insured.

Planned Maintenance Schedules:
