Triple Net: In a triple-net lease, you are responsible for the upkeep of the building. For a new building with a short-term lease, this is not typically a concern; however, for buildings over ten years old or for long-term leases, the building condition and cost of upkeep are concerns.
Pre-lease inspection: You, as a landlord of a commercial building may request the inspection to obtain documented evidence of the condition of the building before leasing it out. We can serve both the lessee (occupant who pays the rent) and the lessor.
The lessee may request the inspection to ensure the building will be suitable for their needs and to protect themselves from claims by the landlord that they damaged or failed to maintain the building.
Post- lease inspection: This is similar to the pre-lease situation, but the lessor wants to determine the condition after the triple-net tenant leaves.
Pre-purchase: We are all familiar with this situation. A person, a group of people or an organization is about to purchase a building and want to know the condition before purchasing. Your report provides purchasers with an idea of the costs involved with owning the building in the short term. Reports are often used to negotiate the purchase price.
Pre-sale: More recently, sellers are having their buildings inspected to eliminate last-minute negotiations.
