Do You Need a Property Condition Assessment?
Few properties are in perfect condition. A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is an inspection of an asset that identifies physical defects and deferred maintenance issues that could potentially affect its value.
It is a cost-effective way to help you determine the condition of a property you intend to purchase, invest in, sell or insure, and what it will cost to maintain it in the coming years.
Lenders typically require PCAs (also called Property Condition Reports) as part of their underwriting process. Buyers and developers use PCAs to minimize risks in their investments. Property managers use PCAs to budget maintenance costs for their capital planning.
During the property assessment, 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.
For each deficiency found, clients receive a report that fully describes the concerns or defects found during the inspection, with photo documentation and an estimate of repair costs. Inspection reports can be customized to meet a client’s requirements based on how the report will be used and its intended audience.
