What Is A Commercial Property Inspection?

“A commercial property inspection is defined as the process of an inspector collecting information through visual observation during a walk-through survey of the subject property, conducting research about the property, and then generating a meaningful report about the condition of the property based on the observations made and research conducted by the inspector. A commercial inspection requires the inspector to make observations, conduct research, and report findings.” – From the CCPIA

Why Should You Have A Commercial Property Inspection?

Commercial buildings are costly to maintain and repairs and the owner’s liability extends to employees and customers. Therefore, a commercial property inspector, like Waypoint in Tampa Bay, FL, can help reduce their risk with a commercial property inspection. It may also help the owner make a good business investment by more thoroughly understanding the property.

What To Expect

The following is from the CCPIA.

Our commercial inspections comply with the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties (ComSOP) – the industry-accepted commercial inspection guidelines, and a proven process and system.

Walk-Through Inspection

This is the portion of the service where the inspector conducts a thorough on-site visual examination of the property’s physical condition. The assessment 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;
  • parking areas and sidewalks (for barriers to accessibility);
  • wood decks and balconies;
  • basement, foundation, and crawlspace;
  • doors, windows, and interior;
  • life safety components;
  • kitchen (including storage);
  • and other areas that are specific to the subject property.

Depending on the scope and needs of the project, we may hire a team of specialists who provide expertise in relevant areas. These may include:

  • a plumber;
  • an electrician;
  • an HVAC contractor;
  • a Professional Engineer;
  • a commercial kitchen expert; and/or
  • an Infrared-Certified® thermal imaging inspector.

 

Document Procurement and Review
For this portion of the service, we request and review documents and records about the property. Some relevant documents may include lease agreements, Certificates of Occupancy, building and fire code violations, service contracts, repair invoices, and maintenance records. We will also interview person(s) with the most knowledge about the condition of the building. Many potential deficiencies can be identified about a building this way, as well as in reviewing its history. This service will:
  • enhance the information obtained during the walk-through survey; and
  • provide supporting documentation for the inspection report.

 

Inspection Report
The final product of a commercial property inspection is the written report. It will contain concise details from the walk-through survey, documents procured, the results of interviews conducted, and any other third-party reports ordered as part of the commercial property inspection.
The inspection report will basically include a detailed summary of our findings. This will provide the client with 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, along with deferred maintenance issues. The inspection report can be used to understand and address the issues that will impact the building from a physical standpoint and financial perspective, as well as the health and safety of the building’s occupants.
Every inspection and subsequent report will be different based on the type of property and its use, the Scope of Work for the inspection, and even the inspector, so previous inspection reports should not be relied upon as an accurate record of its current condition.
Items we report may identify deficiencies related to:
  • poor installation and workmanship;
  • inadequate design for the intended use;
  • deferred maintenance;
  • environmental damage or risks; and/or
  • systems near the end of their service life.
NOTE: If the client prefers a less formal way of gaining an understanding of the condition of a property, we can perform a walk-through survey and orally communicate his or her observations. However, our contract with the client should specifically state the nature of the walk-through survey, including that no written report will be generated as a result.

Because every commercial inspection project is different, we encourage all potential clients to call for quotes.

Jim was a terrific inspector. He was thorough in his work and even more thorough with his communication. He took the time to explain details that I did not understand, and made sure that I had an opportunity for follow-up questions if I had them later. MUCH appreciated, Jim and Waypoint!

I had used waypoint in the past and saw their name pop up on the google search I did so I quickly recognized the company and remembered the great job they had done. I gave them a call to get some inspections done that was being required by the insurance company and they were able to fit me in their schedule a couple of days later. Jeff arrived on time, was very respectful, professional and very detailed. Waypoints service is as great today as it was back in 2009 when I first used their services.
