Q: What do we mean by “inspection data management solutions”?

A: Our company was founded to limit construction risk for lenders and owners. We have always used technology to better our inspection results and conclusions.

We are making this solution available to other participants in all markets.

Q: How much is charged for residential inspections?

A: We offer various services. The price will depend on the regularity of the inspections, the location and geographic spread of the houses, and the level of service wanted. For simple checklist inspections in which we give you an overall percentage completion report, we normally charge on a volume scale. We cover metro Atlanta with several inspectors every week, so we are able to pass on savings to you.

We also review custom house construction. With this level of service, we review the contracts and project drawings for complete compliance.

Q: For home construction, what documents are needed in order to perform our review and inspections?

A: For residential review, all that is needed is the initial appraisal. We recommend funding most houses based on a standard percentage breakdown sheet designed to disburse funds commensurate with house construction. Use our web based draw software to enter important information about the size and other characterizations of the appraised home, and we verify the information in the field. If a slab house is being built and a basement home is appraised, you will know immediately.

Q: Do you make compliance inspections for residential construction?

A: Yes, for custom home inspections, we use a complete set of plans to review complete compliance. For checklist type percentage complete inspections, we compare the general characteristics of the appraised home with those of the home being built.

Q: What is the purpose of a pre-construction budget and document review?

A: The main purpose is to inform you of sufficiency problems with your loan before you close the loan. If your customer has budgeted too little or omitted significant items from his budget, you need to know as soon as possible. We also review all construction documents and we can often find avoidable construction issues written into the documentation. For instance, a contract may not properly identify the scope of work from the start, or may contain a working budget that is “front-end loaded” meaning the contractor will be paid faster than the work is performed.

Q: What is the purpose of the interim draw inspection?

A: Each time the owner wishes to make a draw from the construction loan (usually on a monthly basis), we make an interim site visit and review. Most importantly, we give you a status update of the project with photos (we give our expert opinion on the overall percent complete and the percent complete of individual construction items.) We verify that the draw request represents completed work and is commensurate with progress, that funds have been used for their originally intended purpose, and that the remaining loan funds are sufficient to complete. We keep you informed of any changes to the scope of work and we verify proper engineering and contractual documentation of all changes. We also point out poor workmanship, county inspection issues, code violations, and other major construction issues that can affect the value of the project.

Q: For commercial projects, what documents are needed?

A: Prior to loan closing, we like to have a full set of construction documents. First, we need the owner’s total project budget, showing the source of all funds and showing the budget for the use of all project funds, usually in spreadsheet form. We need the building agreement with the contractor and the contractor’s working budget. We normally recommend standardized contracts, such as A.I.A. contracts. Importantly, the contracts should properly identify the scope of work for a project, and reference a full set of drawings and specs. Finally, we need a copy of the full set of construction drawings and specs.

We can also review any other relevant project documents, such as appraisals, soil reports, zoning and utility availability documents, etc.
