Pre-lease & Post-Lease Inspections: leasing a property owned and managed by others is no less of a risk than purchasing a building sold by others. Leasing contracts are ambiguous and generally favor the lessor. The lessee (renter) is commonly responsible for maintaining or repairing any structural, roofing, mechanical, or improvements before move-out regardless of the condition of the property before move-in. It's smart financial business to have the space or property pre-lease inspected pior to signing any contracts, and having a post-lease inspection performed provides documented proof that helps prevent unexpected move-out fees for un-warranted repairs. Covering your bases throughout the lease term and keeping basic maintenance accordingly, helps build trust with the property owners for future business, while hedging the return of your security deposit.
Construction Draw Inspections: During new construction or rennovations, the lender or fanancier of the project requires inspections of the construction phases prior to draw payment to the general contractor and subcontractors. We conduct site visits weekly or monthly according to the schedule of values provided. Accuracy of the contractors' draw estimates are evaluated by line item and unsatisfactory work is reported and rectified. Reports include photos and narrative reports.
Construction Consulting: As an added option to draw inspections, we provide construction oversight of the overall construction site from ground breaking to final inspection, and report of progress or discrepancies to the client on a weekly basis. We will attend meetings with project managers and contractors relavent to the progress of the project. Construction monitoring and consulting includes: phase completion rate, adherance to plans and scope of work specifications, change order review, local building code review, and defects found. Reports include photos and narrative reports.
Construction Dispute Inspections: During, or after, construction and remodeling projects, it's common for disputes to arise between parties, whether you're a general contractor or a subcontractor arguing over monies owed, or the customer disputing incorrect construction practices and deviations from scope of work. Commonly, an attorney is hired to build a case for the plaintiff, or an arbitration service is hired as a referee to settle the dispute. We are the 3rd party consultants who come to your aid by giving our unbiased opinion on building plan specification deviations, and repair or remediation cost estimates. We are the expert witness who calls it as we professionally see it.
