Instructed to provide pre-acquisition due diligence 
Challenge

Referred to Vail Williams by their lawyers, Steele Raymond, we were instructed at the height of COVID-19 lockdown to carry out pre-acquisition due diligence which would enable contracts to be exchanged within just 20 working days.

How we helped
  • Acted quickly to undertake comprehensive building survey
  • Carried out an insurance reinstatement assessment
  • Completed a Charities Act compliant valuation report
  • Supported client’s longer-term objectives for the site, arranging measured survey and full building plans

Vail Williams were a very responsive and supportive partner during the property transaction. Russell frequently checked in to ensure that the work was progressing as hoped. I am very happy to recommend.

Results
  • Building surveys were completed on time
  • Property was successfully acquired, with Exchange of Contracts within 20 working days
  • Supported client’s future plans through ancillary property advice

Initially I struggled to identify firms who could provide a Charities Act Valuation, a building survey and a valuation for insurance reinstatement purposes within our tight timescales, until I was introduced to Russell Miller at Vail Williams on the recommendation of our solicitor. We received a comprehensive building survey and Charities Act valuation as well as ancillary advice regarding the procurement of measured drawings and the breadth of the new property’s Planning Use Class.
