    a.       Pre-Acquisition Surveys and / or Vendor Surveys

     

    Hunt Commercial is able to undertake building surveys, formerly known as structural surveys, on all forms of commercial and residential property.

    Our team is able to carry out a building survey to investigate and assess the construction and condition of the building. It will not normally include advice and value. The survey includes information about the structure, fabric, finishes, and grounds. In addition, Hunt Commercial is able to expand on the survey by including information from third party advisers. Such advice would typically include the review and testing of the services installations, asbestos or other forms of deleterious materials.

    Hunt Commercial is able to tailor the building reports to satisfy the needs of the client. For example, particular asset management considerations such as the Disability Discrimination Act, deleterious materials, fire safety and other legal issues will be covered within the building survey report to make sure our clients are able to make as informed decision as possible.

    c.       Due Diligence and Lender’s Representatives

     

    Hunt Commercial is able to offer Banks and other funding institutions the expert and independent advice they need to provide reassurance that a development merits investment, and that robust processes are in place.

    On the back of our advice, clients receive accurate and timely information. The information is tailored to meet the specific requirements of the project but typically contains risk assessments and mitigation advice as well as early warning checks and practical advice on resolving any problems which may arise (i.e. boundary disputes or party wall expertise).

    Comprehensive Due Diligence

    Hunt Commercial likes to work with stakeholders as early as possible. Initially our due diligence process involves completing a full circle review of the project’s business case. Once this stage has been completed, our experienced team is able to offer a risk assessment and suggest measures of mitigation. 

    During construction, Hunt Commercial monitors the project and analyses potential risks. Our team works with all parties to ensure the successful completion of the project within a realistic time frame and budget.

    The monitoring process can be tailored to include ongoing operational monitoring. This allows all interested parties to have comfort that the asset is performing as desired.
