A commercial inspection is an important step in the process of opening a new business. It helps to ensure that the property you are considering is suitable for your needs and meets all local code requirements.
The commercial inspector will take a close look at the condition of the building and identify any potential problems. This information can be used to make informed decisions about whether to proceed with the purchase or lease of the property. In addition, commercial inspections can help to ensure that necessary repairs are made before you move in.
By taking this important step, you can avoid costly surprises down the road and help ensure that your new business gets off to a smooth start.

The Inspection Report
The report contains concise details from the walk-through survey, documents procured, the results of interviews, and any other third-party reports ordered as part of the inspection. The report will provide an inventory of the building’s major systems and components, and an evaluation of their functional and physical condition.
