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:
- Heating and ventilation systems
- Cooling systems
- Plumbing systems
- Mechanical and electrical systems
- Roof surface, drainage, and penetrations
- Exterior elements and fixtures
- General topography of the building site
- Poor installation and workmanship
- Inadequate design for the intended use
- Deferred maintenance
- Environmental damage or risks
- Visual Mold Assessment
- Parking areas and sidewalks (to check for barriers to accessibility)
- Wood decks and balconies
- Basement, foundation, and crawlspace

- Other site-specific areas of concern
- Moisture investigations
