For all empty buildings, property inspections at regular intervals are crucial to ensure that they remain in a habitable condition, and don’t suffer from leaks, vandalism, break ins or theft. We provide a full inspection service for owners, landlords, agents and commercial partners, that include full reports and pictures.
Regular inspections can keep a track of any issues within the property, and lets people see us going in and out, at different times of the day.
Our inspections are charged at a reasonable and realistic rate, and would typically include the following, although can be adjust to meet your bespoke needs:
Visual exterior inspection, checking windows and door latches for any signs of break ins.
Internally each room is inspected, looking for signs of deterioration that would include damp, leaks etc.
Pictures taken in each room, and posted to our secure online area where you can view.
A full report completed with recommendations for any work that we feel needs to be carried out.
Photos taken of utility meters, post collected and forwarded (at cost).
Any small amounts of litter gathering on the property are removed.
Normally, insurance companies require that empty (void) properties are inspected on a regular basis, and proof of this is supplied. All our pictures taken are time stamped, and we record our arrival and departure times from the property. Typically we are onsite for a minimum of 20 minutes, and most inspections are complete in 30 minutes.
Empty commercial properties can be a magnet for vandalism, damage, squatters and theft. After paying for void properties to be secured, it is then vital that they are inspected on a regular basis to ensure that nothing has happened to them, whilst awaiting a new tenant.
Our inspection service can visit the properties on a regular basis, and report back any changes and difference that have occurred since our last visit. We take photos of every room on each visit, check meter readings, clear post and small rubbish and complete a full inspection report.
Depending on the size of the property, would depend on how long we spend there. Typically a small shop is complete in 20 minutes, where as an office block would take longer. Each property is treated the same.
