Building Alteration Review

Condition Report
Under this service we can represent landlords or tenants, but only one per lease.

For Lessees
This is conducted prior to acquisition of a leasehold property and is critical for every lessee, particularly those about to entertain a NET, NET, NET lease. If you have any responsibility insofar as building condition, building systems, you may be exposed to thousands of dollars in potential failures, and you may have not set aside enough funds to correct the issue. We have seen many new companies use up marketing dollars to fix systems and fixtures, only to fail in business because it did not have any more funds to market their company properly once the doors were opened.
  It is not uncommon for new excited optimistic business owners to sign a lease on a property without knowing the full extent of the responsibility with regard to the same lease. Many have ended up going out of business because of the increased costs, not just of a new business but of the burdens of the building systems and their respective condition/failures.

As a new business owner you must prevent this from happening and give yourself a fair chance to be successful in your new venture.
Our qualified inspectors will conduct an inspection and document the existing condition of every component including HVAC systems, electrical systems, structural systems, roofing, plumbing, fire suppression system, etc. and provide a detailed report that can be used to better negotiate the lease and minimize the your risk at the start and end at the lease.

Don’t be unprepared. Expect the unexpected and plan accordingly.

For Landlords
Conducting a condition report on the existing condition of every property prior to leasing is an excellent way to manage your liability upon termination of the lease.

It also is an excellent way to reduce the potential for unwarranted litigation over deposits and unexpected reinstatement costs upon termination because the entire condition of all systems and components are professionally documented by a third-party quality assurance company.

Dilapidations Inspection Report
Under this service we can represent landlords or tenants, but only one per lease.

It is an inspection completed at termination of the lease. It is designed to assist tenants and landlords in coming to a mutual evacuation agreement and settlement.

The inspection is based upon the existing condition and how it relates to the lease in question. Our qualified inspectors will review the lease and focus only on those elements that fall under your responsibility and the condition pre-lease if documented.

Once the review is complete and the inspection is conducted, we will complete an inspection report with repair/reinstatement estimates to remedy any defective systems and components and generally return the premises to its original condition. We can also help the property managers/building owners with negotiating the settlement if needed.

Landlords Mid-Lease Condition Inspections
This is an inspection of leasehold units for compliance with leasehold conditions and covenants.

The goal is to protect landlords from accelerated expenses as a result of deferred maintenance or improper maintenance over the term of the lease. Many times, landlords have had to replace mechanical equipment, electrical equipment, fire suppression systems, and more prematurely because they were neglected by the tenant. These expenses can be avoided with a Mid-Lease Condition Inspection Program by AmeriPro.

Our inspection reports clearly document the existing condition and findings at the time of each inspection and any noticeable risks to landlords from the inspection too.

Building Alteration Review
Many new tenants perform some form of alteration to the building or unit during occupation. The risk for landlords here is great, as these works could interfere with the landlord’s overall investment, including other occupying tenants and more.

To ensure that the proposed alterations meet acceptable standards and do not materially affect the landlord’s obligations, other lessees, or the building itself, AmeriPro can help with the approval and landlord representation with a third-party construction management and quality assurance program.

We will review the proposed changes, meet with the tenants and oversee the entire program as the landlord’s eyes and ears. We will provide regular progress reports and document every stage of construction. Should issues occur at a later date, this documentation will be critical to the landlord’s case.

Our objective is to protect the long term investment of every landlord and/or tenant.
