Baltimore, Maryland

Partner has a strong presence in Baltimore, Maryland. The Partner Maryland office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, ADA Surveys, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions. The Baltimore office is headed by Bradley Fountain, MBA with significant experience in due diligence assessments for a variety of property types and also serves as Director of HUD Services.


Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
Partner is the national leader in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments by volume. Most reports are performed to meet the standards of ASTM E1527-21. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender's (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements and understands the multiple counties and municipal regulatory bodies throughout Maryland.
Property Condition Assessments
In addition to providing Phase I ESAs, Partner provides Property Condition Assessments and Commercial Building Inspections for a wide variety of clients; including, CMBS lenders, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac lenders, and equity clients. Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set within ASTM E2018-08 guidelines.
Asbestos Survey
While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner does a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs). Should it become evident that Asbestos-Containing Materials may be present, Partner can perform sampling and testing to evaluate if Asbestos-Containing Material is in fact present.
Phase II Environmental Testing
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11. Partner understands the concerns unique to Maryland, such as historical industrial areas and high radon areas. The Partner Baltimore staff are also familiar with the widely variable geology across the state of Maryland, from the Atlantic Continental Shelf Province to Appalachian Plateaus.
Zoning and ALTA Land Surveys
Partner is a coordinator and preparer of ALTA/NSPS Surveys, Boundary Surveys, Topographic Surveys, and Zoning Reports across the United States for use in commercial transactions. We effectively handle and facilitate the coordination of land surveyors, title, ordering, process, product, and delivery. We manage the entire process of acquiring your survey and can effectively manage single-site or multi-site transactions. Our extensive network allows us the flexibility to provide a registered professional land surveyor for any site location—nationwide—with competitive pricing. We will coordinate all questions and comments from all transaction parties with the site surveyor and furnish reliable timely surveys all from one point of contact. 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 usage regulations, Baltimore and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations; such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
