Maintenance Risk Reports for Commercial Properties
Make the right decisions armed with the facts about the true condition of the property. HouseCheck’s empower buyers, sellers and agents to get the right deal for all parties
Save some money by doing preventative maintenance on your commercial properties
HouseCheck has a few select commercial clients where we do annual or bi-annual maintenance risk reports for commercial properties. Clients include hotels and office blocks. The HouseCheck inspectors create a maintenance report for the property, allowing the owners to plan maintenance over the next while. Whilst conducting these inspections our HouseCheck inspectors also look at the health and safety aspects of the buildings. Here we document safety risks such as inappropriate glass, blocked emergency exits, fire extinguisher maintenance etc.
Talk to us today about how we can help you be proactive in managing your building maintenance.
Our Happy Clients!
We recommend that buyers make their offer to purchase (OTP) subject to a satisfactory HouseCheck.
No house is perfect and your HouseCheck report will separate Vital defects which need immediate attention and maintenance issues which you can handle over time. We include cost estimates for both. This is your negotiating tool.
HouseCheck finds a variety of situations. Whilst most of our clients are buyers, we also have sellers paying for inspections and occasionally estate agents as well. Until 2020 buyers were prejudiced by the voetstoots clause and therefore it was and is still in their interests to get a HouseCheck.
Sellers and Agents are at risk under the Property Practitioners Act of 2019 and the associated regulations. Therefore more and more agents and sellers are initiating inspections.
No, but now that you know what the defects will cost to repair, you can check if the property is priced at a reasonable level.
A seller may also offer to correct the defects prior to the sale. Your agent may advise that despite the defects you still have a good buy given that the comparative market analysis indicates that the property could sell for more. Some sellers price for a quick sale.
