When it comes to commercial buildings, an inspection just makes sense when buying. But what about leasing?
The same may hold true as well given the lessee may want to make certain costly leasehold improvements. In fact, depending on your lease, you may be responsible for “maintenance” related items on the building and or the replacement of items when they wear out such as the HVAC system.
In addition, if the building requires attention, you’ll want to ensure that repairs are made not only for your convenience and comfort, but for the safety of its occupants.
If you’re considering buying or leasing a commercial building, your due diligence should include a building inspection.
