Whether for individual or portfolio instructions, our experienced team at Malcolm Hollis has the skills and resources to provide a range of quality, bespoke building surveys across the UK and Ireland, quickly and competitively.

Having delivered this core service area for over 20 years our reputation is such that we are privileged to have been involved in providing Building Survey reports and advice for many high profile clients and transactions across all property sectors.  Our extensive experience enables us to provide a commercial, cost-effective and excellent quality of service, whether for stand-alone or multiple building acquisitions or disposals.

At Malcolm Hollis, we understand that funders, institutions, investors, occupiers and vendors have differing needs.  With every instruction we ensure that, from the outset, we understand your particular aims and tailor our product to meet your requirements – whether they relate to defects, materials testing, refurbishment proposal, cost recoverability via dilapidation claims, insurance, warranties, documentation and many other matters.

Our expertise in landlord and tenant matters also means we deliver significant added value to the service we provide since the financial implications of terminal (and interim) dilapidations claims and the recoverability of service charge expenditure are usually considerable.  To us, this is a critically important and crucial part of the technical due diligence process.  This is why we take the time to review existing leases and associated documentation to ensure that our clients are provided with as full a picture as possible of the proposed transaction.

Recognising the increasing complexity of building services we also offer a comprehensive range of specialist M&E services in-house.  In addition, many of our clients choose to ‘bolt-on’ additional services, such as Planned Maintenance Schedules, Schedules of Condition, Access Audits, EPCs, Environmental, Measured Surveys, Service Charge assessments and Reinstatement Cost Assessments (RCAs) which can be carried out in tandem with the survey. 

Of course, our experienced Project Management team is always on-hand should you wish to proceed with procuring and carrying out works – ranging from straightforward defects remedying to full-scale refurbishments and extensions.
