Commercial Inspections

Whether you plan on purchasing, occupying, leasing, or selling a commercial building, consider having it thoroughly inspected. As a buyer, you will have negotiating power if your offer is based on the facts of our comprehensive building inspections.

The Real Estate Inspection Company has a large team of inspectors. We can scale resources to address your needs like no other inspection company. From small, free-standing buildings to large apartment complexes, we can perform a property condition assessment in a timely manner and provide you with a report on defective items requiring immediate attention, as well as deferred maintenance that will require capital investment in the future. We offer several services for our commercial customers:

  • Due diligence building inspections
  • Property condition assessments (PCAs)
  • Triple net lease inspections
  • Acquisition (purchase) inspections
  • Apartment complex inspections
  • Moisture investigations
  • Mold testing

  • General maintenance building inspections

Prior to the inspection, we may request documentation from the seller. These documents can include ADA assessments, maintenance records, disclosure statements, environmental reports, permits, and recent repairs. The more information we have, the better the report will be.

You can trust the professionals at The Real Estate Inspection Company to perform your property condition assessment to CCPIA and ASTM E2018-15 standards and to provide exceptional communication, value, clarity, and technical expertise.

What Does a Commercial Building Inspection Include?

Commercial property inspections are performed for first-time buyers and longtime investors who want to add to their portfolios. It’s one of the smartest decisions they can make during their due-diligence contingency period. Regardless of a client’s experience in buying commercial real estate, the commercial inspection is an investment, and investing should never be done haphazardly or allow for important items to be overlooked.

A commercial property inspection will provide information on the physical condition of the property as a whole. It will also list an inventory of the building’s major systems and components and an evaluation of their functional and physical condition. These findings will highlight the property’s strengths and potential deficiencies, as well as deferred maintenance issues.

As a baseline, the assessment will include a thorough visual inspection that is focused on the building’s critical systems and components, including the following:
