If you are considering purchasing a commercial structure, whether it’s a warehouse, office block, an apartment building, retail shop, childcare centre, small factory, hall, showroom, school or even a motel, a pre-purchase commercial building inspection is an essential step in the due diligence process. When purchasing a commercial property there are many components, elements, aspects and areas that must be thoroughly inspected to ensure any structural defects and other issues are identified in order to ensure your investment is of sound quality.
A Commercial Building Inspection identifies significant issues relating to the condition of the property including structural problems, cracking, leaks or dampness, and any maintenance issues that are required to all accessible areas of the building in order to give you a clear picture of the property. The commercial building inspection report will expose any problems, thus allowing you to make an informed decision regarding your purchase.
