Multi-Unit Building Inspection

Our multi-unit and apartment building inspection services help potential buyers, sellers and property managers to document property conditions, address maintenance issues and/or plan for improvements.


We offer the inspection of low- to mid-rise apartment buildings (5-20 units) and high-rise complexes (over 21 units). For Multi-Family inspections coveringbuildings of 2-4 units (duplex, triplex and fourplex/quadruplex), see our Total Home Inspection page.

The inspection process we follow is very systematic, ensuring that every unit (or an agreed upon representative percentage of units) is carefully inspected and areas of concern documented. Our system allows us to do the job properly with minimal interruptions to tenants because we take the same pride, care and concern with inspecting multi-units as we do with single family homes.

Your multi-unit building inspection will include but is not limited to the following items, systems and components (assuming they are present and accessible). Clients may also work with us to develop a customized scope of work.

Sampling Method for Large Complexes
When the inspector randomly chooses a percentage of the units to inspect thoroughly (typically 10-20%), some units will be located on the first floor, others on the middle floors and some on the top floor in order to check for roof leaks. The inspection findings are then used to approximate the overall quality and condition of the building.

Reports also include a detailed list of more immediate needed repairs within each unit and a comprehensive outlook of the property’s overall condition.


Add-on Services
Additional services such as the following can be included with your multi-unit inspection:

Termite Inspection
Mold Inspection
Radon Testing

Completion Time
The amount of time needed on-site to complete a project depends on the scope of work and the number of units being inspected. Also, report preparation requires adequate office time following the on-site inspection. You may contact us to find out the approximate time needed for a thorough evaluation and documentation of your building(s).
