Pre-Lease Acquisition Surveys

It is common place for people purchasing property to obtain a survey prior to completion of the purchase. However, many potential leasehold occupiers do not consider the potential liabilities over the term of a lease.

A Pre-Lease Survey will not only report on the condition of the building at potential lease commencement, it will also identify any immediate liabilities or expenditure required to enable occupation of the premises by the proposed tenant.

It will also identify likely maintenance issues and commitments during the term which will include any likely element or component replacement. Finally, it will consider potential liabilities at lease end.

Pre-Lease surveys will also identify any items that should be negotiated out prior to completion of a new lease.


Peacock Stevens were appointed to carry out an inspection of the above property and report on the condition prior to the completion of a new lease at the property.


Professional and pragmatic advice from an experienced building surveying practice who we are always happy to recommend to our clients.

I recently used Peacock Stevens when looking to purchase a new house. In the end I instructed two surveys as the depth and quality of the report on the first property identified defects that would have meant significant costs to me, meaning I did not proceed.

I am pleased that my second choice was defect free and the quality and detail in the survey was again of the highest standard.

Peacock Stevens recently carried out an RICS Building Survey for me on a house I was looking to purchase. The report was thorough and detailed but was also easy to understand. We are very happy in our new home.

Mr S Davenport

An excellent and comprehensive report and we will take heed of its findings. We are proceeding with the purchase and hopefully all will go according to plan. Thank you and with best wishes
