Prompt Service

UniSPEC understands the importance of timely scheduling, efficient turnaround and effective communication with property owners, brokers and managers. UniSPEC will work with you to schedule an inspection promptly to meet your needs and deadlines.

Significant Findings

Upon completion of the inspection, your UniSPEC inspector will present to you a report of all significant findings regarding the following:

  • Roof
  • Foundation
  • Windows
  • Heating/cooling system
  • Electrical systems
  • Plumbing
  • Drive/parking areas

Few properties are in perfect condition. Like used cars, older properties require maintenance and repair over time. An inspection can inform you about areas of concern, improve your negotiating position and provide you with an assessment of the property’s current condition for future reference.
