    Property condition assessments (PCAs) are engineering due diligence projects associated with commercial real estate. According to ASTM E2018, the goal of the Property Condition Report is to identify and communicate physical deficiencies to a user.
    They are done in both equity and debt markets. On the equity side, these reports primarily have value to the purchaser in that they can understand the issues and the potential costs associated with owning a property.
    In debt markets, the reports have the value of letting the lender know that the borrower will likely have sufficient cash flow to operate, maintain and update the property over the course of the loan.
    LHEA has successfully performed PCAs on numerous properties & types including Hospitality, multi-family, retail, office, industrial and heathcare.
    We provide a full range of PCA services; all of our assessments are performed by professional engineers, utilizing the ASTM Standard E2018-99 as a guideline.
