  • (1888PressRelease) November 16, 2010 - American Security Systems Offers Innovative Inspection Services to Potential Commercial Building Buyers

    With the ever-changing landscape of NYC fire and safety codes, it is almost essential that potential customers take care when reviewing a building. "Before you buy a car or a house, you would have it inspected by a reliable individual knowledgeable about possible defects," notes Larry Dolin, President of American Security Services.

    The same principle holds true for purchasing a commercial property. Without doubt, a pre-inspection of a commercial property can save a potential buyer tens of thousands of dollars in code violations and months of delays in repairs. While it is really just a case of buyer beware, many people seeking to buy commercial property do not assert the same privileges and rights as if they were buying any other large ticket item.

    In truth, Clients have saved money by discovering issues like fire and building code violations before purchase. "In each case, clients can save on the cost of purchase, avoid buying a commercial property that will not pass building code inspection in New York City, and understand the true cost of purchase," states Dolin about American Security Systems Pre-inspection services.

    Indeed, the savings to potential commercial property buyers could be substantial. For every fire or safety violation, there is the required cost of fixing the issue accompanied by the price of the fine and the time delays to fix the violation. Many buyers find that the violations range from the simplest things like blocking a door to larger problems like faulty or unapproved fire alarm systems. Clients are shocked to find out that violations dealing with the fire alarm can actually become criminal. "We have helped clients repair rather replace an alarm system saving them thousands of dollars. Owners sometimes find out the hard way that they cannot perform build outs because the building fire alarm was never approved and they are unable to obtain a TCO or CO for the tenant. American Security Services helps clients know the buy a property with confidence knowing that the benefit and the pitfalls of purchase," states Dolin about the pre-inspection process.
