Importance of a Commercial Property Inspection

Reprinted from


One of the most important things to have, when representing a buyer in the purchase of real estate, is a commercial property inspection. This should be done by a qualified property inspector. Having this type of inspection ensures that the buyer has “looked under the hood” and knows exactly what they are getting. What can appear to be a good purchase can sometimes quickly turn into a money pit with multiple unseen issues that the buyer would be inheriting.

A list of the items to be checked during a commercial property inspection:

  • Structural Issues
  • Mold (WDO Inspection)
  • HVAC

  • Proper Insulation
  • Fire/Life Safety Issues
  • ADA compliance issues
  • Foundation issues
