Buying a commercial building is a big investment. Before you purchase, you want to gather the information needed to make an informed decision on the property.
Commercial buildings are usually divided between five categories: Office Buildings, Retail/Restaurant, Multifamily Dwellings, Land and Miscellaneous.
Light commercial inspections are a Walk-Through Survey to obtain a general overview of all major systems and components present in the building including the structure, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, exterior and interior.
An inspection will reveal the life spans of five major systems within the building, including the following:
- Structural Integrity
- Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC)
A commercial building inspection is a professional investigation that helps buyers, sellers, renovators, and developers get a clear picture of the existing condition of a property. Properties may look fine to the untrained eye but may conceal problems. An inspection is always worth it, even if nothing major is discovered.
