Milestone Inspections in 5 Steps
At ORTAM, we follow a thorough procedure to ensure the highest quality of service for our clients, which includes several key steps
1 - Assess Whether Your Property Needs An Inspection
We will start by determining whether the legislation applies to your building, moving fast if you have already received a Notice of Inspection.
2 - Plan And Carry Out The Inspection
Then, your property will be visually inspected by a structural engineer. A more thorough Phase Two inspection may be necessary if the inspector finds “Substantial Structural Deterioration” as defined by the new Phase One requirement. If so, the inspector evaluates your structure to see if it meets relevant criteria.
3 - Analysis of the Structural Integrity Reserve
A reserve analysis assesses and creates the Association’s reserve funds for significant upkeep tasks.
4 - Report to state
A sealed copy of the inspection report will be provided to the building owner, the condo/cooperative association, and the local building safety official.
5. Get Ready for Next Steps
A plan is put into place for ongoing compliance.
