Commercial Property Inspections

Inspections For Professional Property Purchasers

Commercial properties are defined as building structures and improvements located on a parcel of commercial real estate.  These may include structures such as buildings with residential units operated for profit, mixed-use buildings, strip malls, motels, factories, storage facilities, restaurants and office buildings.

The inspection is defined as the process of collecting information via visual observation during a walk-through survey of the subject property, conducting research about the property and generating a meaningful report illustrating the condition of the property.

Observations note potential items of interest gathered during the walk-through survey portion of the inspection. Research is the process of gathering information through document review and interviews to augment the observations made during the walk-through portion of the inspection. This research may include reviewing readily available documents such as previous inspection reports, building permit applications, code violation notices and environmental studies. This research may also include interviews with readily available personnel, such as building managers, tenants and owners.

The inspection report is a written comminque describing the issues discovered during the walk-through survey and the research conducted by the inspector that may be of interest to the client/owner or potential renters. The report will contain photographs of observations made during the walk-through survey and copies of documents reviewed during the research portion of the process.
