Property Condition Assessments
Property Condition Assessments and Reports
Partner performs Property Condition Assessments and Property Condition Reports for lenders and real estate investors. Partner's architects, engineers, and commercial building inspectors inspect the subject property in order to understand the condition of the building. A Property Condition Assessment Report is generated discussing each building system and its condition. The most important part of the Property Condition Assessment Report is the Immediate Repairs table and the Replacement Reserve Table, which helps the client understand how the condition of the building will impact the assets financial performance.
CMBS Lenders, insurance lenders, and some portfolio lenders routinely order Property Condition Assessments (PCA), also known as Property Condition Reports (PCR) or Commercial Building Inspections. Partner prepares PCAs to meet the requirements of rating agencies such as Standard and Poor's, as well as to the scope of work defined by ASTM E2018 Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process.
Partner's PCA reports discuss all major building systems and site improvements and includes a Replacement Reserve Table and an Immediate Repairs Table. The Immediate Repairs Table identifies capital needs and prices all failing or damaged building systems and life safety issues.
Real Estate Investors
Real Estate Investors are interested in ensuring that their investment is a solid one, with no surprises. Partner tailors our investigations to the asset and the investor's concerns. Partner can perform extremely thorough building evaluations where all major systems are tested and evaluated.
While more thorough evaluations are generally more expensive, Partner often saves our clients money well in excess of our fee by identifying major building deficiencies prior to our client taking ownership.
While our assessors are very knowledgeable, our assessments can be enhanced by our network of specialists. Partner maintains relationships with expert specialists in every building system. The specialist reports can then be folded into our Property Condition Assessment Report.
