Retail Property Inspection

There are lots of different retail properties in various commercial structures.  Many of the spaces can range from multi-story mall structures, mix use buildings, strip malls, and shopping centers. Investors, lessors, leesees are all potential buyers and tenants.  Each one has specific needs that we can address and meet.


When our clients have done all the research, finding the right demographics, the right location, then the right building we step in.  They understand to get their choice property inspected during the due diligence period.  To help with your lease negotiations we are gathering risk issues that may be present. These risks if not found during negotiations will be costly and unexpected after the fact.  However, knowing potential risk during negotiations will put power in your hands.


Depending on your lease type your expose can be little or great.  A normal lease keeps many expenses on the lessor side. If you decide on a triple-net or net lease your exposure is greater.  The latter leans much more on a good commercial building inspection.  Triple-net lessees need to know what their potential unexpected risk is as much as their operational expenses.


One more note about a proper commercial building inspection for retail spaces.  If you have specific utility needs for gas, power, tel/com, water and wastewater, we can assist in understanding existing conditions and if they meet those needs.  During this process we can provide a complete inventory of the assets that come with the space being leased.  This process can also provide deferred maintenance issues as well.
