All you want for Christmas

Articles/News | December 6, 2018

For the last few years, the idea of a Christmas slow-down has been a myth in the commercial property market.  If anything, the run up to the end of the year has become one of the busiest periods for fast turn-around transactions, as investors look to balance their books and set their budgets up for next year by buying or selling assets.

Selling or buying quickly, with the right level of technical due diligence, during a period when many are preparing to wind down or go on holiday, can be challenging.  However, the importance of proper TDD should not be underestimated.

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your perspective), at Malcolm Hollis we don’t wind down in December. We have full service specialist teams ready at short notice to be dispatched to sites around the UK and Europe that can cover off all aspects of technical due diligence. Think of us like a team of multi-powered super hero Santas, but in orange, not red.

We have spent the last number of years expanding our specialist areas and building dedicated teams of experts so that we now have in-house expertise and capabilities in the following areas:

Whether for individual or portfolio instructions, our experienced team has the skills and resources to provide a range of quality, bespoke building surveys quickly and competitively – from a vendor pack to a pre-acquisition survey.

What is more, we have invested in our own technologies so that our teams are able to produce detailed survey reports and recommendations as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Plus, as a completely independent practice that understands your commercial drivers, you can be assured that the advice you are getting has your best interests at heart. We don’t want to be the Grinches that ruined Christmas!

We really do have ALL* you want this Christmas, so if you are looking at buying or selling assets this December make sure you call out our superhero Santas for your due diligence.

*One small ‘clause’ – we can’t supply two front teeth.
