Managing Empty Buildings

Managing empty buildings is not about shutting the door and forgetting about them; there are serious liability issues to consider, both criminal and civil.

Trevor Rushton summarises the considerations a building surveyor should have in mind, including:

  • mechanisms of decay – the need for urgent repairs and protection
  • security measures – metal theft
  • fre precautions – the need for fire risk assessment
  • building services
  • environmental issues
  • wildlife
  • insurance considerations
  • regulations and statutory requirements.

Trevor is technical director at Watts Group and a regular contributor to RICS conferences.
