What is a Property Condition Assessment?
Few properties are in perfect condition. A Property Condition Assessment identifies physical defects and deferred maintenance issues that could potentially affect the value of an asset.
A Property Condition Assessment (PCA), also referred to as a Commercial Building Inspection, involves research and interviews, a walk-through survey of the commercial property, a review of relevant documents, and developing a Property Condition Report (PCR) about the property’s physical condition.
The inspector visits the site and spends several hours or days doing a walk-through of the property and inspecting the building envelope, structural systems, HVAC systems, electrical systems, plumbing and more.
Because most commercial properties are more complex and have more systems and features than residential properties, it’s important to hire a company with extensive experience in the construction, maintenance and inspection of commercial buildings.
