Pukka Pies, Syston, Leicestershire



Pukka Pies was considering acquiring two properties near their existing premises – a 40,000 sq ft warehouse with integral office accommodation and a detached industrial unit. Before proceeding, Pukka Pies instructed Innes England’s building surveyors to produce a pre-acquisition report on the condition of each building, highlighting any major areas of disrepair. Timing was crucial to the deal, requiring us to provide our report within ten days of instruction.

Services provided:

  • Pre-acquisition survey and advice

Our Solution

We wasted no time in initiating discussions with the present occupiers, arranging access for our surveyors and agreeing the use of a truck mounted access lift to enable us to inspect the roof coverings.


Having submitted our reports to the deadline agreed, Pukka Pies decided to proceed with the purchase, giving excellent feedback to our surveying team.
