This involves a detailed property and site inspection, followed up with a comprehensive report on the age and construction of the buildings, along with the condition of the various elements. I will also provide extensive photographs to illustrate my findings along with budget costs on necessary repairs and, if appropriate, ongoing maintenance.
Advice for landlords or tenants on repairs, reinstatement, redecoration and compliance with statute issues, either during the lease term or at the end. This includes detailed site inspections, preparation of formal schedules with individually costed items, summaries of claim, and negotiations with appropriate parties. I have extensive knowledge in this particular area of property law and have successfully settled numerous claims over the last 15 years.
Sometimes a client wants advice on a particular problem. I can carefully consider the defect, many of which often have related issues elsewhere in the building, and recommend remedial repairs. If required, I can appoint and monitor suitable contractors.
Coordinating a construction project, whether it be new build, conversion or refurbishment, is both time consuming and stressful. I have managed various projects including new build housing, barn conversions, refurbishment of shops, offices and industrial buildings. This includes preparing schedule of works, contract documents, tendering, appointment and supervision of contractors.
I can provide general guidance on the whole development process or specific elements, as required.
