Property Condition Assessments

Building Condition Assessment

HLC’s expert team performs Property Condition Assessments (PCA’s)/Building Condition Assessments and provides PCA Reports for lenders and real estate investors. The reports are completed in accordance to “ASTM Standard E2018-15, “Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process”.

During the PCA, HLC’s highly experienced building professionals assess the subject property in order to understand the condition of the building. We then prepare a PCA Report, complete with a forecasting opinion of probable costs with all necessary repairs or replacements. The final step is to sit down with you to discuss each building system and its condition/associated upcoming expenditures.
