Property Condition Assessments (PCA)
When a commercial, retail, or family housing property is in the acquisition process, the buyer or lender may request a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) to ensure due diligence and identify any significant deficiencies of the property to better comprehend the condition of the asset being acquired.
PCAs are included in the American Society of Material Testing (ASTM) standard guide, “ASTM E2018 Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process,” which was originally published in 1999. This standard was last updated in 2015 and is known as ASTM E2018-15
