BBC - Blackmore Building Consultancy Ltd


Blackmore Building Consultancy is a RICS regulated commercial building surveying firm created in 2016 with the very clear; goal to create a unique firm able to provide landlords and tenants with the very best independent, specialist dilapidations advice and project deliver services

Dilapidations is not treated as a specialist service line by our competitors with the result that only a handful of genuine specialists exist in the UK, and of those few match our expertise and experience

Our surveyors previously worked at senior level in the UK’s largest property consultancies and together we have successfully created, defended and settled thousands of dilapidations claims over the last three decades. In a quickly consolidating surveying industry we have united to offer a truly independent and ‘conflict free’ specialist consultancy service

We use our detailed understanding of ‘the game’ to speedily identify and minimise future risk, settling the majority of claims before lease end, saving our clients’ substantial amounts of time and money

The Approach

Blackmore Building Consultancy provide owners and occupiers with the very best lease-end advice, strategies and practical services needed to navigate through the constantly evolving, complex and onerous world of UK commercial lease obligations that combine with a constantly changing market, law and tax obligations to create a virtual ‘bear trap’ for the poorly advised

Commercially aware:
We understand the commercial pressures our clients are under and wherever possible tailor our service to meet their expectations and needs

Track Record:
In the last 12 months alone we have successfully resolved many millions of pounds in dilapidations disputes for landlords and tenants

Our fees are competitive, reflect the type and level of service provided and whenever possible are incentive based to share the client’s risk

The team boast decades of dilapidations experience

Members of the team act as expert witness in court cases and ADR, lecture, sit on related industry committees and write extensively on their chosen subjects
