Due Diligence Reviews

Property acquisition and estate management for both residential accommodation and commercial properties must undergo a process of due diligence to ensure transparency at the time of any new purchase.

These Technical Due Diligence Reports, which detail the physical condition of a property, (such as the Fire Safety Assessments that are produced by the IFC Group), are increasingly in demand, as financial institutions, investors and owner-occupiers look ever more closely at the risks of buying and selling property.

An accurate and honest assessment of the existing building’s fire safety standards is therefore an essential element to these proceedings and when done correctly can save buyers time and avoid unexpected redevelopment costs, incurred by having to complete expensive mandatory upgrades.

IFC have extensive experience carrying out due diligence reviews and surveys covering fire safety on a wide range of private and public buildings. We are able to submit comprehensive and professional written assessments focusing on areas such as fire engineering, smoke ventilation, fire system design and the surveys of fire doors and walls.

IFC’s written assessments will provide a detailed review of the site, give expert opinion on any areas of concern that do not meet applicable fire safety standards and highlight issues which require significant investment to make good.
