A Guide to Preparing an Occupiers Handbook


IMAG0719Chartered surveyors working in property management of commercial, retail or residential property regularly prepares and updates an Occupiers Handbook.

The SCSI has published this Information Paper setting out a best practice Occupiers Handbook template that chartered surveyors may wish to follow when creating or updating the Handbook.

Each time the management of a property changes hands or a new property comes to the market, there is a potential opportunity to prepare a new handbook.

Every property and every lease is unique and the preparation of an Occupiers Handbook is regulated by the terms of the leases and the requirements of the property.

This Handbook is intended as a guide only and as an aid to asking some of the more pertinent questions in assisting you to compile your own document. In particular this handbook will be of benefit to new entrants to our profession.


 The Occupiers Handbook is available for members to download here.
