Buying any property is a huge investment. This is especially true for business owners hoping that a potential property will represent their next successful endeavor, or investors putting their money on the line in hopes of successful tenants moving in.

As small business owners ourselves, we can definitely understand that choosing and purchasing a commercial property is no easy task.

That’s why it’s so crucial that commercial buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into before finalizing the deal.

Property inspections are our business. Let us help you protect your business.

During a commercial building inspection, the professionals at MKC Associates help buyers better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase.

With everything else that business owners have to deal with (permits, hiring employees, taxes, attorneys… the list goes on), MKC is here to make one of the harder steps smooth and understandable.

Your business is your priority. You are our priority.

This is your business — and potentially your building — so you’re welcome to join us on inspection day to get a firsthand look at what we uncover.

We’ll also explain everything in our clear and thorough reports and make ourselves available as an asset to you long after the inspection is over.

Commercial Building Inspection FAQs

Still have questions? Check below to see if we’ve answered them. If not, check out our FAQ page or reach out to us.

How long does an inspection take?

Generally a commercial building inspection takes between 2 to 4 hours. The time it takes to conduct the inspection depends on the size, type, and age of the property. It also depends on what the property will be used for commercially.

Will you give me quotes on repair costs for issues you find at the commercial property?

No. Massachusetts Regulations for Home Inspectors (MA CMR 266) prohibits building inspectors from reporting on costs to repair conditions observed at the inspection. We recommend that you obtain quotes for any item that requires repair or replacement from the relevant professionals.

Can I just use the inspection report from the previous owner of the property?

No. First of all, you should you get your own report in order to verify the true status of the property before purchasing.

Secondly, their report is only considered valid for use by them for the specific property inspected at the specific time and date inspected. We will accept no liability or responsibility for use of the report by anyone else and for any other purpose.

Can I see a sample report?

Of course! You can see a sample report here.

Buyers Home Inspection

Buyer’s Inspection

Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

If you’re selling a home or property, it’s a good idea to have it inspected before it’s listed. Houses with a pre-listing inspection are more attractive to potential buyers. Pre-listing inspections give sellers the chance to work with us to uncover issues or necessary repairs. We’ll also give you our expert recommendations on what repairs to make before showing the property.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction HOME Inspection

Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

ONE YEAR HOME Warranty Inspection

Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.

Re Inspection


After a buyer’s home inspection, the buyer and seller of a home will come to an agreement about what repairs should be made before closing. Once those repairs are made, a re-inspection can be performed in order to ensure all agreements were honored and that the necessary repairs were made.

Commercial Building Inspection
