Pre-Purchase Land Inspections

Pre-Purchase Land Inspections

Your home is inspected; next, understand the land you are purchasing and any local or state regulatory requirements.

Similar to home inspections, a pre-purchase inspection of your surrounding trees, landscape, forests, streams and ponds by experts is invaluable.

Our team of wetland, wildlife and arborist consultants can help you make sense of your property. We work with dozens of jurisdictions across the Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca and understand their complex environmental regulations. We can help answer the following questions:

  • Where to build outside of wetlands and the shoreline?
  • What is the permit process?
  • What trees should be removed; which trees should be preserved?
  • Is my forestland tax-exempt?
  • Is mitigation required for my development?
