DUE DILIGENCE

Building Due-Diligence/Property Condition Assessment

A building condition or property needs assessment identifies and documents the general physical condition and quality of improvements on a given property. CMC’s experienced professionals detect and present deficiencies that could have an adverse impact on the property’s cash flow, function, marketability and ultimate value. These reports encompass all aspects of the site and structure, including parking lots, drainage, walkways, roof, basement, structure envelope, interior, life safety, MEP systems and  other significant areas or components.

CMC can also review system and component expected useful life and prepare a replacement/capital cost analysis. CMC's expected useful life and capital cost tables provide a method to identify, quantify, and budget the necessary funding for future major building repairs and replacements. Lenders and investors utilize this service as a proactive portfolio management tool. As properties age, expenditures for replacements and improvements are imperative to maintaining an asset's value. Inadequate replacement reserve may result in substantial physical deterioration of the asset, which will in turn adversely affect its collateral value and significantly increase an investor’s risk over term. 

CMC offers four distinct Property Condition Assessment (PCA) report formats. Each is tailored to meet a specific requirement or standard. Each may be supplemented with custom useful life analysis and capital cost tables.

PCA Report Types
