During a building’s construction, your financial institution may order commercial draw inspections at various stages of the process. This helps ensure that funds are being disbursed properly for the project and involves a due diligence confirmation of completion on the inspector’s part. This is often known as a percentage of completion inspection. Our inspectors also perform what is known as “phase” inspections. This type of inspections determines whether a certain stage of construction has been completed satisfactorily and properly. Examples of when this type of inspection may occur are at foundation completion, pre-drywall installation (to check for proper framing) and upon completion when the entire project is completed.

A commercial property assessment should be conducted PRIOR TO a tenant moving in so that the condition of the property may be documented with a PCA report (Property Condition Assessment). Likewise, when a Tenant moves out, another PCA should be conducted in order to determine and document the condition the Tenant left the property in. This will assist the client with retaining security deposits if needed and also help determine if renovations or repairs are required PRIOR TO leasing to a new tenant. New South Property Inspections has done hundreds of these types of inspections.
