Identifying ongoing repairs and maintenance for your portfolio is vital.
Being able to identify the repairs and maintenance required to your property over a 5-10 year period is imperative for future planning and the development of your business in general.
Planned maintenance surveys take a pragmatic and commercially sensitive view looking not just at the physical requirements but also the financial cost of carrying out the repairs. They are carried out by an RICS qualified Building Surveyor.
The planned maintenance survey reviews all building elements internally and externally including items such as ceilings, walls, floor finishes, state of decoration, fixtures and fittings, brickwork, windows, roofs, chimneys, flashings, render and boundary fences.
The planned maintenance survey report will list any existing condition or defect and make recommendations of the remedial action required. It will also detail the urgency of the repair, the likely cost and the recommended timescale in which the repair should be made.
The report itself includes an executive summary highlighting key findings. More in depth information is included in a detailed spreadsheet of elemental costs on an annual basis allowing the client to more accurately plan and budget for the future. It also identifies Health and Safety issues, urgent issues and ongoing maintenance issues.
As a follow on from the report, we can put a programme of works together and project manage the programme of planned repair work. We have excellent working relationships with a number of specialist contractors and have close links with M&E engineers, structural engineers and specialist environmental consultants.
