These documents set out the standard terms and conditions of the provision of services by a commercial property surveyor. Our pack includes two versions (also sold separately):
- Commercial Building Survey T&Cs
- Commercial Valuation Survey T&Cs.
These documents are for use when the service being provided is the survey of a commercial property in the form of either a building survey or a valuation survey and the production of a report containing details of your findings. The report may contain a market valuation or market rent for the property, depending on the type of survey being conducted and the instructions of your client.
Both terms and conditions templates include an application form so that you can provide your client with details of their survey job (including the services you will provide, details of the property, details of who should receive copies of the report, your fees and expenses, terms of payment etc.) along with your standard terms and conditions.
You need to bring your terms and conditions to the attention of your client in such a way as to allow them to be incorporated into the contract. Normal practice is to print your terms and conditions on the reverse of the application form. It's a good idea to insert a reference on the front page to your terms and conditions on the reverse.
