Standards of Practice
InspectorUSA uses the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties as a baseline for performing commercial property inspections.
The objective of a commercial inspection is to provide written communication
describing the issues discovered from observations made and research conducted by the inspector and that, in the inspector’s opinion, are likely to be of interest to his/her client, and to enhance the client’s information andknowledge about the commercial property to improve decision-making for buying, selling, maintaining, or improving the property.
The International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties is designed as a baseline from which the inspector and client can develop and agree to a scope of work that may deviate from this Standard, depending on budget, time constraints, purpose of the inspection, age of the subject property, and risk-tolerance of the client. The level of due diligence should be set where the cost, in time and money, of acquiring information about the subject property will not likely exceed the value of that information.
InspectorUSA uses InterNACHI’s Residential Standards of Practice for large residential inspection projects.
