Property Condition Assesment (PCA)

A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) provides real estate business owners and investors with a complete and detailed view of a property’s condition.

The purpose of the assessment is to observe and report on the physical condition of a property and to provide professional recommendations regarding future issues including financial risk or liability to the client.

The ASTM has outlined the PCA process and the four major components of a PCA:

  • Document Review & Interviews

  • A Walk-Through Survey

  • Opinion of Costs to Remedy Physical Deficiencies

  • Property Condition Report (PCR)


Our Building Systems Review will include:

  • Building Site: including access, paving, grading and drainage, landscaping, lighting, parking, and other site appurtenances

  • Structural systems including foundations, structural framing, and floor and roof structure

  • Exterior building systems including exterior walls, windows, insulation, sealants, doors, frames, and hardware

  • Roofing

  • Interior improvements including building common area finishes and fixtures and typical tenant finishes, such as flooring, wall finishes, ceiling systems, doors, frames, hardware, restroom fixtures, and window treatment

  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning

  • Plumbing systems

  • Electrical systems

  • Life Safety/Fire Protection systems  

  • Accessibility provisions


The end work product of a PCA will be the Property Condition Report (PCR) given to the client.

For each physical deficiency found, the PCR will have photo documentation, a description of the condition, and an opinion of probable costs to remedy. A 3D walk-through survey will be included.
