STANDARD FOR PROPERTY CONDITION ASSESSMENTS
In August of 1999, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) published a Standard E2018-99, which defined “good commercial and customary practice for conducting a baseline Property Condition Assessment (PCA).” This standard was specifically written for commercial real estate and largely intended for commercial real estate transactions. The Standard was last updated in November of 2015 and is now known as E2018-15.
This standard is the recognized protocol for due diligence building inspections. This protocol makes it easier for those involved with commercial real estate transactions, as the report contents and format have been well defined. The detailed report provides a condition assessment of: Structures, parking, exterior cladding, roofing, windows and doors, heating and cooling systems, interior finishes, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and swimming pools.
