The Property Council Guide to Measurements provides a uniform and impartial method of measuring floor space for commercial, industrial and retail premises which will be acceptable to all those in the provision and utilisation of space.
It is recommended by Property Council New Zealand that this guide be referred to in lease documents and the relevant method applied should be specified, as widely as possible.
Because all buildings are different and each has its own unique set of conditions, calculating the rentable area of a tenancy can be difficult, and while the Property Council’s guidelines do an excellent job of defining the criteria for calculating areas, it would be impossible to cover all eventualities that can arise in the built world. This is where the experience and knowledge base of a good surveyor comes into play.
Realserve has been at the forefront of producing Rentable Area Surveys for many years and are now renowned in the industry as the foremost experts in lettable area determinations. With many thousands of rentable area surveys behind us, we have an extensive knowledge base of experience to draw upon to ensure the rentable area derived from a property is fair and just to all parties concerned. We understand the local and legislative requirement for a lease in any part of the country.
Realserve has proudly supported the Property Council in this regard. Purchase your copy of the Method of Measurement for Rentable Areas, from the Property Council
