What to expect from a commercial inspection

Prior to the Inspection

Prior to the Inspection

Prepare a list of questions or concerns about the property and provide them to the inspection company in advance. For example, if you have you seen mold in a commercial building or property, add this to your list. This will help ensure that such matters are addressed and that any special arrangements can be made. Real estate agents should instruct sellers to ensure all areas are accessible to the inspector. For example, if access to any rooms is blocked by furniture or other items, access should be cleared for the inspection.

During the Inspection

If you're a buyer, it's especially important to be present during the inspection. By accompanying the inspector, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • See firsthand the condition of key components throughout the property, giving you a better understanding of the property and the resulting inspection report.
  • Help ease concerns about findings that may appear serious on paper but are in fact superficial.
  • Learn about the operation of the new property. The inspector can point out maintenance needs and procedures and explain how and when to check items that need periodic monitoring.
  • Have your questions and concerns addressed immediately as they arise.
