    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on September 23, 2010 and Updated on August 18, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    The following are a few of about 40 checklist items we typically cover in our due diligence when assisting clients:

    • Zoning/deed restrictions - Be sure any applicable zoning or restrictions allow for your business use 
    • Access - The property needs to be easily accessed from major thoroughfares and delivery trucks should be able to navigate the roadways to your warehouse 
    • Taxes and POA’s - Compare property tax rates as MUD’s and other U.D.’s can increase the tax rate significantly. Also Property Owner Associations may assess annual fees to keep the property mowed and cover some common electric 
    • Elevation - While many properties lie outside 500 and 100 year flood zones, they still may hold water after heavy rains or get run off from adjacent property. Do your homework, interview adjacent property owners and get a good topographic survey 
    • Detention - In many counties, the Flood Management District will require a developer install storm water detention onsite to control water runoff. This can eat up 15% or more of your useable area. Some master planned business parks have the detention in place for the entire development and your land could be used entirely for your improvements with no detention required 
    • Utilities - A buyer needs to confirm that his prospective site has access to sanitary sewer, water and storm water outfall. If a water well and/or septic system are to be used, be sure all required installation distances, spray field, and local government requirements can be met

    Article Synopsis

    Distribution, manufacturing, service, fabrication, storage and many other uses occupy millions of warehouses around the world. Goods go in, goods go out, machinery goes in, machinery goes out - and on and on - through docks. Understanding the types of access to these warehouses is imperative when evaluating business needs and alternative facilities available. In this article we will explore several widely used loading types.

    Article Synopsis

    So you found your perfect office and/or warehouse. It is the right square footage, has adequate ceiling heights and yard area and is in a good location. You just went under contract at the Title Company. Now what?

    Now the real important work begins. There will almost always be several buildings that fit your requirement, however finding the one with few to no issues is a different story. Many brokers feel their work is done once the property is under contract. This is far from the truth. A good commercial broker shines once the contract clock starts ticking.

    Free items first 

    While there are numerous due diligence items which have to be handled, I always put the questions on the top of the checklist which won’t cost my client anything to get answered. That way if my Buyer can’t live with these he won’t waste money on phase one environmental studies, appraisals and further attorney fees.

    Physical inspection of the property is more than just looking at the obvious components of the warehouse and or office as the roof, structure, paving, electrical and mechanical systems. The ones that can be missed are indications of standing water near the building which may be caused from poor drainage. Does the roof drain to one side or does it collect in the middle of the building in a gutter, which may be problematic. If you have an office building, do you have enough parking, adequate and efficient HVAC? Does the building meet ADA codes? If an office warehouse, is the truck court adequate, is there enough power, is the rail siding up to the rail provider’s specs? The structural, MEP and environmental studies should be handled by licensed professionals…however they often miss issues. A second set of eyes is important.

    Documents contained in the Seller deliveries and the title commitment are the first to get tackled. While attorney consultation is a must with contract and commitment review, a quality broker can make valuable suggestions that an attorney may miss and then can evaluate. The title commitment should provide copies of any recorded deed restrictions on the property which may be problematic. At this stage local zoning should also be confirmed for the same reason. Encumbrances evidenced in the commitment may also be revealed such as an easement which may prohibit the Buyers intended use. Again a good real estate attorney is important at this point.
