The purpose of this page is to define best practices and to establish a reasonable approach for the performance of inspection when inspecting a commercial property. Hopefully, these commercial resources we provide will help answer any questions you have about the commercial inspection process. A commercial property is defined as the building structures and improvements located on a parcel of commercial real estate. These may include structures such as buildings with residential units operated for profit, mixed-use buildings, strip malls, motels, factories, storage facilities, restaurants and office buildings. The inspection is defined as the process of an inspector collecting information through visual observation during a walk-through survey of the subject property, conducting research about the property, and then generating a meaningful report about the condition of the property based on the observations made and research conducted by the inspector. A commercial inspection requires the inspector to make observations, conduct research, and report findings. The Inspector’s research involves reviewing readily available documents, such as previous inspection reports, building permits, code violation notices and environmental studies as provided by the property owner or manager. This research may also include interviews with readily available personnel, such as building managers, tenants and owners. The inspector should review all documents provided by the client and owner. The inspector will also make an inquiry and review of any other documents that can be reasonably procured on-site or from the building owner or manager, such as Certificates of Occupancy, building code violation notices, repair invoices, and warranties. The inspector is not required to uncover and review information that is not provided or cannot be reasonably ascertained or acquired on-site. Copies of documents that the inspector believes may be of interest to the client and copies of documents that support the inspector's opinions should be included in the inspection report. Examples of documents the inspector may request for review: Accessibility surveys Appraisals Building plans Certificates of Occupancy Citations Deck age records, plans and construction permits Deck and balcony maintenance, power-washing, painting treating, repair and modification history Emergency evacuation plans Environmental studies Evacuation drill records Fire-detection test and maintenance records Fire door inspection reports Fire-prevention plans Fire extinguisher service records Fire records Flame-resistant certificates Floodplain map Floor plans Kitchen grease-cleaning records Kitchen post-fire inspections Maintenance records Manufacturers' installation instructions Notices Permits Power-washing records Previous inspection reports Proposals Rent records Repair estimates/invoices Safety inspection records Seller disclosures Sprinkler head replacement records Utility bills Warranties
