Partner has a strong presence throughout the Orlando, Florida area. The Orlando Partner team provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Reports, Asbestos Surveys, and Lead Testing in support of local and nationwide commercial and multi-family real estate transactions. The Partner Orlando team understands Florida’s unique geology and hydrogeology, and is led by James Cullinan, PG, who has provided technical and management expertise on due diligence projects across North America and Europe during his 15 years of experience.
Partner provides both local and nationwide Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Most reports are performed to meet the standards of ASTM E1527-13 or meet our client's customized reporting standards. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender's (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements.
Partner provides lenders and real estate investors with Property Condition Reports. Partner architects, engineers, and commercial building inspectors inspect the subject property in order to gain an understanding of the condition of the building. Our reports meet ASTM E2018-08 guidelines.
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision, property transaction or to meet agency requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). Typically our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11. Our environmental professionals understand the unique hydrogeology and variable geology found in Florida, such as karst topography.
While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner does a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). If it becomes evident that Asbestos Containing Materials may be present, Partner can perform sampling and testing to evaluate if Asbestos Containing Material is in fact present.
A zoning report is a necessary part of many real property transactions because the current owner is responsible for existing zoning violations. Partner’s Zoning Reports take into consideration usage regulations, Orlando and other municipality provisions as well as other regulations, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
