The Property Condition Assessment Report provides appropriate due diligence for a real estate transaction. Our reports comply with industry standards such as those of Standard and Poor’s and ASTM. Our standard report goes beyond these basic requirements by providing additional commentary about the operation of the building and its systems. We provide a list of current deficiencies and areas of deferred maintenance along with the cost to cure these deficiencies. At the end of our report is a table of capital reserve requirements.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessment studies follow the format of the most current addition of ASTM Standard 1527 and include a physical inspection of the site, a review of relevant records, and interviews with occupants, owners, neighbors and selected officials. The scope is often expanded to address issues specific to the subject property.

Condominium associations and other Common Interest Realty Groups will appreciate our comprehensive approach to reserve studies. If your reserve is underfunded, we will develop practical alternatives that combine common sense engineering and accounting expertise. If your property has known problems, or if we uncover them, we are available locally to develop repair designs, bid packages, and manage construction. If you have never had a reserve study, you will have peace of mind knowing that a reliable analysis has been performed.
