Technical Due Diligence

Whether for individual or portfolio instructions, we have the experience and skills to provide a range of quality, bespoke building surveys.

Our experience enables us to provide a commercial and cost-effective service, whether for stand-alone or multiple building acquisitions or disposals.

We understand that funders, institutions, investors, occupiers and vendors all have differing needs.  Consequently, we ensure that we establish your specific requirements and tailor our service to meet those requirements – whether they relate to defects, materials testing, refurbishment proposals, cost recoverability via dilapidation claims, insurance, warranties, documentation or other associated matters.

Our experience in dilapidations also means we are able offer additional advice as the implications of terminal (and interim) dilapidations claims are usually considerable.  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.

Whilst we do not offer Building Services advice in house, we do recognise the increasing complexity of building services and the impact this can have when undertaking a Due Diligence inspection and we have in place arrangements with Building Services Consultants so we are able to include a comprehensive coverage with any report, should this be required.


Our clients were seeking to acquire a large 12 storey tower block formally owned by the Local Authority. Due to tight timescales on the bidding process, Peacock Stevens were tasked with turning the survey around within a 7-day period.


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

Peacock Stevens have continued to deliver a pro-active and professional service during the years that I have worked with them. Their communication throughout the process is excellent, delivering the projects in an efficient and timely manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service.

We have appointed Peacock Stevens on numerous projects ranging from retail conversions and extensions to large-scale petrol filling station developments. They have continuously delivered in terms of their professional and diligent approach, and we look forward to working with them again on future projects.

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.

Mrs Frances Hilton

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
