Do I Need a Surveyor For a Lease Extension?

If you are wishing to extend the lease on one of your properties then it is recommended to use a chartered surveyor to negotiate the relevant terms to your advantage. They will have both the knowledge and experience to make sure that the lease extension includes all factors that are required as well as being able to put you in contact with the correct people to complete the formal legal process. 

What’s more, a lease extension typically involves a lease evaluation which also requires the skills of a chartered surveyor. The property surveyor is responsible for assessing the condition of the property to determine whether any improvements need to be made as well as whether the level of rent is still appropriate for the property and market conditions. 

If you are looking to complete a lease extension on your property, get in touch today to have a consultation with one of our experienced property surveyors.

How Do You Audit a Lease Contract?

A lease audit is a comprehensive audit of a landlord’s contract details, books and expenses to evaluate whether the tenant is being treated fairly. The audit also helps to identify whether the landlord is accurately meeting the terms of the lease due to it being a legal contract. A lease contract audit is completed using the following steps: 

1. Firstly a chartered surveyor will complete a review to determine whether there is any evidence to suggest an audit is required and then notify the landlord.

2. Then a meeting will take place between the chartered surveyor, the tenant and the landlord to start the process. 

3. Once the initial notification of 30 days has passed, the chartered surveyor conducts a detailed audit of the landlord’s finances and writes a report. 

4. If any issues are identified, the surveyor will help with negotiation or the tenant can acquire their own legal support. 

5. Both sides then ideally agree upon a solution and a plan for moving forward. 

6. If necessary, ongoing monitoring can continue to prevent repeated issues.
