Property Condition Assessment and Property Condition Report


Commercial Property Condition Assessment (PCA) & Commercial Property Inspection 

What is the difference between a Commercial Property Condition Assessment (PCA) and a Commercial Property Inspection or Commercial Building Inspection

Commercial Property Inspection

A commercial property inspection is a visual examination of a property to determine its value, condition, and necessary repairs. The inspector will look for structural deficiencies, safety hazards, and other critical issues. The Inspector will also review documents related to the property, such as repair records, maintenance records, and lease agreements.

The inspector will generate a report about the condition of the property. This report can provide the information needed to make an educated buying / selling or leasing decision.

Property Condition Assessment / Report

A Property Condition Assessment, followed by a Property Condition Report, is an evaluation of the short and 1-5 year costs  to operate the building.

A Property Condition Assessment, followed by a Property Condition Report, evaluates the short-term and 1-5-year costs to operate the building.

A Property Condition Report is a written evaluation of the capital expenses that will likely be required to maintain an asset in the short- and long-term.


The standard scope of work for the Property Condition Assessment includes a walk-through survey of the property to assess the condition of building systems, components, and other property improvements, along with interviews and document reviews regarding the age and condition of property improvements.

Opinion of Probable Cost

An Opinion of Probable Cost can be added to any inspection that we do

An Opinion of Probable Cost can be added to any inspection that we do

Our professional inspectors evaluate the property, identifying any areas that require correction or improvement. Once the inspection is complete, we compile a comprehensive report that includes a breakdown with an Opinion of Probable Cost for each identified issue. This breakdown typically includes the projected costs for materials, labor, permits, and any additional professional services that may be necessary to rectify the problems. The items identified will be classed into three categories. Immediate estimated repair costs, 1 year estimated costs and 5 Year estimated repair costs.

We will also work to identify the remaining life of the major building systems/components.
