I am in contract for a mixed use building (2 resi units, 2 commercial units) on Long Island. Does anyone have any guidance as to how much a building inspection report should be? Along with receiving a general inspection, the guy I plan on using is a licensed engineer as well.
@Jansen H. I would estimate 1,000 dollars. I would suggest you want a licensed building inspector with references. There are many different kinds of engineers, including software engineers!;)) All the best.
@Brandon Abbott Can you assist with this one?
@Jansen H. This is very market specific but I would estimate that the cost would be around $1,500. I would certainly make sure that they were a licensed inspector. Being an engineer does not really factor into this type of service. On top of being a licensed inspector it is helpful if they are a licensed contractor in the municipality of the property. This allows them to state necessary changes instead of making mere recommendations. Inspectors can only recommend. @Dan Handford
Thanks everyone. Very helpful.
@Jansen H. for a property that size it shouldn't be much at all. My guestimate would be between $500-1000 bucks. Good luck
