Commercial and Industrial Pre-purchase Inspections

Why do I need an inspection?

More often than not, the capital outlay required to purchase a commercial or industrial building is significant.

The consequences of purchasing a building that has unforseen structural defects, termite and other timber pest damage or significant deterioration can be serious.

If high borrowings are utilised to fund the required capital and a building becomes unusable, the consequences of loss of income due to undetected defects can be catastrophic.

Commercial and Industrial pre-purchase inspections are aimed at providing a purchaser with the information required to ensure the structure will perform as expected and at the expected ongoing costs.

Commercial and industrial buildings are constructed using a wide variety of construction methods. In some instances these construction methods were complicated and not fully understood by the building contractor. As a result, basic errors occurred during construction that are difficult to adequatley rectify once the building is completed.

Buildings that fall into this bracket often suffer accelerated deterioration and subsqently incur higher than expected maintenance costs. Identifying the unexpected costs associated with defective structures is a significant step in purchasing a property that will provide strong returns over a long period of time.

Buildings that have structural defects and may be suffering from accelerated deterioration may also harbour a more serious attribute. The health, wellbeing and safety of the building occupants and members of the public that may visit the property is, to a large degree, the responsibilty of the the building owner.

If a workplace incident occurs and the structure is implicated as a contributing factor, criminal convictions can be the result.
