Commercial and industrial buildings must satisfy a complex range of needs including operating efficiency, long term durability, and increasingly strict health and safety requirements – all at minimum cost
And, more than ever, the success of a building lies in its ability to respond to the changing needs of corporate users
Shortcomings in design, construction or maintenance therefore have a signifiant impact on the cost of ownership and cannot be ignored when planning an acquisition
French law affords only limited protection against the consequences of design and construction errors, so acquiring property in France – as an investment or to meet operational needs without first commissioning a Building Survey is to take a serious risk for no good reason
Turnbull Associés is an independent firm of Chartered Building Surveyors, qualified to carry out building surveys in France for companies planning to acquire or lease property.
A wealth of experience in building inspection and maintenance of both British and French property is at your disposal. And you enjoy a guarantee of objectivity because the firm has no links with agents, developers, or financial institutions.
The firm also provides assistance to corporate property users in the choice, fitting-out and operation of premises and has acquired a detailed understanding of their practical needs.
Speed is of the essence in property acquisition. We can usually begin a survey within 24 hours of receiving written instructions and deliver the report in less than ten days.
The cost of the survey represents a only small proportion of acquisition expenses. And it could help you avoid an expensive mistake.
