Service: Pre-acquisition Building Survey

Location: Leeds City Centre

Client: Glenbrook

We were appointed to undertake a pre-acquisition survey on behalf of Manchester-based Glenbrook Investments in relation to its acquisition of the freehold interest in Albion Court, Leeds, for £6.7m. As well as the pre-acquisition survey, we also co-ordinated the M&E survey and provided repair costings.

A pre-acquisition survey enables clients to make informed decisions about any potential future property investments and avert any potential risks.  A report will typically include detailed analysis of the building’s structure, condition, any defects, future maintenance requirements, associated budget costs and also advises on the legislative compliance issues.

We also worked closely with an independent mechanical and electrical consultant to review the installation of services, so every detail was accounted for in the final report. This enabled Glenbrook Investments to make a fully informed decision. We are also continuing to provide ongoing post-acquisition advice.

Albion Court, which is part Grade II-listed and extends to 31,400 sq ft, provides a mix of leisure, retail and office accommodation over five storeys.
