Pre-Purchase Geological Inspection
Keeping you informed about your property-purchasing decisions.
When considering a purchase as major as a single-family home or a commercial property, it pays to know that property both inside and out. Feffer Geological expertly assesses and describes the property's current condition for prospective buyers, and even lets them know what to expect with regard to the property's future performance.
Our clients range from individuals to agents associated with such notable firms as Coldwell Banker, Prudential, Sotheby's, Keller Williams, Partners Trust, Teles Properties, and RE/MAX.
All Feffer Geological pre-purchase inspections include:
- A site review that analyzes the condition of the building foundation, site slopes, drainage, and all external improvements (pools, walls, flatwork);
- Review of soil and geology reports and permits on file with the governing municipality for the subject site and relevant surrounding properties;
- Review of pertinent earthquake, fault, seismic hazard, landslide, and geology map; and
- Review of recent and historical aerial photographs.
In addition, our team of certified geological inspectors will flag any and all existing conditions affecting the foundation, drainage conditions, slope stability, swimming pools, retaining walls and other improvements.
Once the inspection is complete, we immediately present the findings verbally to our client, and follow-up with an outlined report that includes photos of the property, geological maps, a description of our findings, recommendations for maintenance or repair, and a prognosis of future performance.
