This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

What You Should Know About Commercial Building Permits

A commercial building permit is crucial if you want to renovate or build an additional building to the current one. If you don’t know much about this permit and its importance for your property, then you are at the right place. We have decided to inform everyone in detail about this permit. That’s why throughout this article, we will go over what a commercial building permit is, when it is required, how they are useful, what to do if there is a code violation, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start learning.

What is a Commercial Building Permit?

Your local government usually issues a commercial building permit to ensure everyone's safety. They are obtained when there is work regarding renovating the existing property, constructing a new property in addition to the existing property, or constructing a new property entirely. This permit is essential for public safety and the health of the building. Let’s look at more details on the occasions this permit is required.

When Is This Permit Required?

As we said above, you need this permit if you renovate an existing property. Some examples of renovation can include coloring the exterior wall entirely if they are different from the current program, combining spaces by demolishing a wall, moving locations of entrances, or changing the space of offices. Although they may seem like minor things that aren’t required to get a permit, it will be better for you to report this to your local building department and notify them of this change.

How Are These Permits Useful?

Going back to what is a commercial building permit section, we said that the local government does it to ensure safety. If we were to look at it in more detail, this safety can be defined as protecting the building occupants, life safety, serving as a record for future reference in the case of an unusual event, stormwater and fire management systems to prevent any potential damage to the property, and insulation requirements. These all serve to provide a better and safer space for everyone.

What To Do If There Is A Code Violation?

Sometimes, property owners don’t realize they are involved in a code violation until warned. If you get a code violation, do not try to make a real estate deal. This will result in the issue growing and your property losing credibility. Instead, try to quickly solve the problem, call the local government to learn more about the problem, and then continue with your normal deals.
