As professional commercial inspectors in the Houston area, Bryan & Bryan Inspections understand the importance of thorough building inspections. Our goal is to help you, the business owner, make the best business decision on whether or not to purchase or sell a commercial property. Whether you are a seller or buyer, we recommend preparing for your property inspection by following the three tips below. 

How to Prepare for a Commercial Building Inspection

1. Prepare a List of Questions

If you’re buying or leasing a commercial building, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of questions ahead of time. Our building inspectors conduct thorough examinations of the building and exterior property but, if you have specific questions, having a list will ensure you receive the answers you need.

Ideas for questions may include:

  • What is the condition of the roof?
  • Are there any safety hazards?
  • Which systems should be repaired first?
  • Are there any current warranties on the property?

2. Be Present During the Inspection

As a potential buyer of a commercial property, you have the right to be present for the inspection. Be sure to bring along your list of questions too. A professional property inspector will be more than happy to have you along, as well as answer any questions you may have along the way.

3. Ensure Access to All Areas

If you’re selling the commercial property to be inspected, make sure that all areas are accessible. For example, there could be rooms that are blocked by furniture or other items. Do your due diligence and go through the building, ensuring that every room, including closets and storage areas, can be easily accessed by the inspector.
