What is a Property Condition Assessment?

A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is performed for lenders, lessors, and real estate investors. Once ordered, our Environmental Professionals get to work assessing the subject property to better evaluate the condition of the property’s built environment.

PCAs feature a walk-through survey to document readily apparent material and building system defects that might affect the value of your property. In addition, our expert staff will generate for you a detailed list of cost opinions on the capital expenditures necessary to bring your property into ADA compliance, to execute immediate and short-term repairs, and to create a capital reserve fund sufficient to underwrite an ongoing repair, maintenance, and replacement schedule. Further, our staff will evaluate the condition of your property’s exterior and interior structural components, infrastructure systems, and finishes and provide you with a Remaining Useful Life (RUL) estimate for each.
