Commercial Recommendations

Before purchasing or leasing a commercial property it is recommended to obtain:

  • Check with the state, municipality, etc. to see if there are any current/pending/future building or other code, fire, zoning, occupancy, use, ADA, etc. violations attributed/attributable to the property

  • Copies of any available building plans, specifications, engineering/lot surveys, etc. of the property/building
  • Certificate of Occupancy
  • Building Permit
  • Leases that may apply to the property
  • Contact information for any and all companies that have serviced the building or its equipment (e.g. elevators, fire sprinklers, alarm systems, etc.)

  • Certificates and documentation (e.g. boiler inspection certificate, elevator inspection certificate, environmental assessment reports, fire alarm reports, tenant complaint logs, electrical compliance certificate, specialty equipment inspections, etc.)

  • Earthquake/seismic information, including that which may already be available from the State/County/City Geologist

  • Evaluation of items that are mentioned in the contract as items or systems, etc. that we will not be evaluating

  • We should also mention that often the states, municipalities, etc. do not require upgrades to get closer to, if not fully satisfy, code, etc. in/on some areas/items/systems until a building is sold. Thus, it may be a good idea to also ask them what they might require upon the sale of the building in question. They may later claim that they are not limited by that pre-purchase discussion as to what they may/will require once the building is sold.

  • You may also elect to have any number of supplemental evaluations done for the property that goes beyond what we will provide in our report (evaluation by the municipality for acceptability of any change in building design, use of the property, etc. you expect to make, indoor air quality, intelligent building systems, specialty equipment, items not included in our report, appraisal of value, seismic evaluation, etc.)
