Have you recently purchased a hotel or apartment complex and need to have it inspected before the sale goes through? You may think that all inspectors are created equal and you can just hire a home inspector, but our team at America’s Choice Commercial Building Inspections, LLC urges you to instead hire an inspector that specializes in your type of building. We’ve put together a list of questions to ask your inspector so you can make sure you’re getting the right inspection for your needs.

Commercial Building Inspections

When can you perform the inspection?

This question may seem obvious, but when you have a sale pending, it is very important to be specific on what date you need your inspection completed. The date needs to suit you so that you have enough time to consider the findings and arrange further inspections (such as mold) if needed.

Could I see a sample report?

Each property inspection company is required to meet that state’s inspection requirements, so the building inspector should meet them as well. However, to make sure your needs are met, you’ll want the inspector to customize your inspection to the building’s unique design. A great way to make sure you can do this is by seeing a sample of their work. There should be a summary, recommendations, and details of the defects, their locations, as well as a proposed course of action.

What building issues are common in this area?

Each area in the United States is unique and has its own issues. Your inspector should be knowledgeable about what you should be concerned about in your area. If your area has a history of past flooding, ask whether a mold inspection is included or whether you can add it as a specialty service.
