In a commercial real estate transaction, a responsible investor will complete all their due diligence, including an inspection to assess the property’s condition. This process can get complicated, with unexpected findings slowing down negotiations. United Property Inspectors, Inc. will set your mind at ease with a commercial building inspection, which can provide information and clarity for all parties involved. Let’s explore four tips for sellers as you prepare for a successful property inspection.

Commercial Building Inspection

1. Gather All Relevant Documentation 

Before the inspector arrives, you’ll want to organize any important documentation related to the property. The inspector will need to see any maintenance and repair records, certificates of occupancy, floor plans, permits, surveys, and whatever else you have available. 

2. Take Care of Necessary Maintenance & Repairs

If the building is due for maintenance or any outstanding repairs need to be completed, take the time to address those before the inspection. The fewer issues found, the better, as this will demonstrate diligent upkeep and establish trust. 

3. Ensure Accessibility to All Areas

The inspector will need to be able to access all areas of the building. If necessary, clear pathways through the building so the inspector can easily access every room and important space. Also, you will need to unlock all doors or provide access codes as needed.

4. Consider a Pre-Listing Inspection

The most comprehensive way to prepare for a buyer’s inspection is first to schedule a seller’s pre-listing inspection. We offer these inspections for landlords and those preparing to sell. A pre-listing inspection will not only allow you to identify and address any potential issues proactively but also provide you with insight into the condition of the building.
