|What Not to Do When Hiring a Real Estate Building Inspector|
|Before you go ahead and buy any kind of commercial property it is important that you find a reliable building inspector to take a detailed look into the property as you'd never know what kind of problems may arise.|
There will be plenty of tutorials as to what needs to be done in order to find the right property and inspector, but for now let us take a look at what you should refrain from doing:
Referrals - Referrals are always a good thing. However, you should never hire a building inspector who was referred to you by the people you're buying the property from as in most cases they're going to be biased and would give you false information.
You would definitely depend on your relator's recommendations when looking to buy property, but to be on the safe side you should look out for an inspector who's independent and would work solely for you and not just give you a false report in the hopes that you would buy the property.
Pick a commercial estate inspector - Another mistake that people often commit it that of hiring a home inspector to look into commercial real estate. These may seem like related issues, however they're nowhere close to being related and therefore you need to make sure that you book the right people for the job.
Of course there are going to be similarities and most of the real estate inspectors would have started off as home owners, you could even say home inspection is a pre-requisite to commercial inspection.
Don't rely on a single inspector - If you can afford to hire two or more inspectors to do the job separately that would be a great thing as in that case you would be sure to receive the best services and you would know that you're not being cheated in any sense.
Look for past references - The commercial estate inspector would have surely performed other inspections before, take a look at their past projects and if possible meet the people that they've worked for and find out more about the services they offered and whether or not they were precise.
There are plenty of other aspects that you would need to look into as well before you hire someone to do the job for you. One of the major things that you need to find out before you hire them is the way they're going to charge you and how much they'd be charging you for the job.
