New legislation that could affect the value of your property


THE ENERGY ACT: Effective 1st April 2018

With the 1st April 2018 fast approaching we are now seeing the first signs of impact from the latest changes affecting EPC regulations on existing commercial property stock. If you advise on or own commercial premises that are either vacant or have a tenant where the lease is about to expire, you may already be considering what measures you can put in place to uphold values and ensure that such property remains an attractive prospect for ingoing tenants.

If you have not yet considered this issue, there is still time to put measures in place which are likely to save you money in the long term and either maintain or even enhance investment values. 

Vickery Holman operate throughout the South West using local knowledge and expertise to advise a range of clients and with regards a wide variety of property types. We have an extensive, multi-disciplined team including Professional Services, Construction Management, Building Surveying and Development Services and this allows us to assist clients with:

• Advice on whether a property will be affected by the implementation of the new laws;
• Identifying and costing works required to poorly performing buildings, ensuring they can be let or sold as well as allowing leases to be renewed,
• Project managing any resultant refurbishment works,
• Advice on redeveloping buildings for their most viable use, particularly where the cost of works identified are significant and where such works may mean the building is beyond economic repair. 

This list is by no means exhaustive, therefore to give you an idea of the broad range of services we can offer to both you and your clients, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Building Surveying team and we would be delighted to provide you with an initial consultation in order to further discuss your requirements and to see if we can help.
