Ready for the Pension Revolution?

From April 2015 onwards rules relating to self-invested pensions (SIPPS) will change significantly allowing investors over the age of 55 to access their pension pots.  In anticipation of the changes, we have received enquiries regarding the availability of properties from individuals looking to diversify their investments by purchasing commercial and industrial property.

Impey & Company is a leading Stockport based practice of chartered surveyors offering a full range of services to investors including:-

  • Acquisition Advice

We can carry out a full search identifying suitable buildings, provide acquisition advice and negotiate competitive terms for the purchase of a building.

  • Landlord and Tenant Advice

Where a property is purchased subject to an existing lease, we can undertake an inspection of the property and advise whether the tenant is complying with the terms of the lease.  We can identify defects that may exist and recommend action.

  • Schedules of Condition/Schedules of Dilapidations

We can provide advice in relation to the overall condition of the building and the necessary action to take to ensure that the value of the investment is maintained.

  • Rating Advice

The payment of rates can be onerous and in the current climate it is important that the local authority charges the correct level of rates.  We can carry out a desktop review of rates and advise in relation to grounds for appeal.  Where a building is empty, we can provide assistance to reduce the rates liability.

  • Marketing and Disposal Advice

We offer a full marketing service and provide bespoke marketing campaigns to ensure the best price/rent within the shortest possible timeframe is achieved.
