Leasing or buying a commercial space can be costly for a small business. Before you lock your company into a legal agreement, it’s a good idea to schedule a commercial property inspection to protect your interests. A professional inspection can rule out potential problems and ensure the new office space is a worthwhile property investment.
Whether or not you’re hiring a professional inspector, make sure you know what goes into a building inspection so you can monitor the process and ensure the inspector covers all bases. Although Canadian provinces require inspectors to be licensed, no central agency sets the standards for commercial inspection.
