Commercial Inspection Services  

We can tailor the scope and objective of the commercial real estate inspection to meet each client's need. The scope of the commercial building inspection is most commonly a comprehensive visual inspection to determine the property's condition, documented in a written report. The objective of the inspection is normally to obtain a third-party and unbiased property inspection to identify deferred maintenance issues, such as roof and water intrusion, as well as deficiencies with structural and basic operational components of the building, such as HVAC, electrical/lighting and plumbing. The scope of the inspection can be designed to meet ASTM E2018 professional standards if required.

Some of the most common types of commercial building inspections include the following:

Prepurchase inspections. Once you determine that you like a commercial building and its location, and whether it has enough usable square footage and ample parking, consider the substantial costs to repair a roof or replace a commercial chiller. A comprehensive  commercial real estate inspection will help complete your due diligence so you can make an informed decision regarding a commercial property.

Prelisting inspections. Many sellers anticipate that a prospective buyer will demand a commercial building inspection. A prelisting inspection can determine what repairs need to be completed in advance to streamline the sales process.

Pre- and post-lease inspections (for landlords or tenants). Long-term leases may hold the tenant responsible for many or all repairs to the building. Prior to signing a long-term lease, a tenant should know whether the building needs a new roof, requires upgraded electrical service, etc. Likewise, at the end of a long-term lease, tenants consider GPI to perform a commercial building inspection to document the condition of the building as they left it. A building owner may rely on a an unbiased commercial property inspection before a tenant takes possession of the building and again after the tenant vacates the building.
