We undertake substantial volumes of work each year for most of the UK’s leading mainstream and bespoke mortgage lenders, and enjoy a large share of the Greater London market – working closely with all other KFH divisions.
We have one of the largest teams of qualified chartered surveyors and valuers in London, undertaking a comprehensive range of services for corporate and private clients, covering residential, commercial and mixed use property.
We undertake full residential and commercial building surveys, providing detailed reports and assessment of structure and condition for properties. Work is undertaken strictly in line with RICS guidelines and geared to meet each lender’s service level agreements.
Our specialist surveyors also advise on a range of other property matters including:
- Schedules of dilapidations and condition – Before you sign a lease, we will provide you with information about the condition of the building and any existing or likely repair costs before you commit. Under a commercial lease you are likely to be responsible for repairs, and if taking on an existing lease you may have to take on the repair liabilities of the previous tenant.
- Probate and matrimonial,
- Leasehold enfranchisement,
- Short lease valuations, and
- Expert witness – Our specialist expert witness team offers extensive knowledge of a wide range of surveying disciplines including valuation, building defects and leasehold reform. If a property dispute reaches court we have the knowledge and credibility required of an expert witness. Our reputation and experience is crucial in compiling expert reports and justifying them in court. Our client base includes a number of the top litigation solicitors in the country, confirming their confidence and trust in our team’s abilities.
We also offer a full range of homebuyer’s survey and valuation services.
