Structural report for landlord approval and for leaseholders


If we are not the freeholder of our home or property, then making changes to its basic fabric can often required approval of the landlord or freeholder.

It might be you wish to create an opening in a wall within the property or perhaps reposition a staircase.  Typically, in both homes and commercial properties, such changes would require the approval of the landlord or free holder.  This is essentially this is so they can be sure your changes won’t harm their property in a number of possible ways.  One of those ways is whether the changes you wish might have an adverse effect on the structural of your premises or those surrounding it.  To provide that approval, landlords or leaseholders will often require advice from a structural engineer on how the proposed changes might affect the structure.  As experienced structural engineers, Structures-Made-Easy can provide that advice and provide the required assurance so that you will be permitted to carry out your changes.  It may be, for instance, you wish to remove a wall but are unsure whether it is supporting the floors of the flats or offices above.

As a leading company in the field, Structures-Made-Easy have a wealth of experience of buildings from Tudor to modern day, and are the expert specialists who can give reliable guidance on the issues requiring approval from the landlord or leaseholder.  Other professionals in the construction industry such as surveyors, builders or architects may give initial guidance or recognition of structural matters but reliable specialist advice can only come from a structural engineer. 

We will visit the property to gather evidence on the building and investigate the highlighted issue.  With our experienced and informed eye, we can also judge the structural health of concealed elements such as the foundations based on what we can see above ground.  We will then produce a detailed written report describing the changes, how you are proposing to address it and the impact of your proposals on the basic building and the surrounding building.  .Our report can then be submitted to the landlord or leaseholder with the aim of giving them adequate assurance to approve your proposals.
