I inspect a lot of condos, and I always make sure to get roof access from the building manager so I can inspect the AC system as you mentioned. But l also get access to the electrical panel room so I can inspect the meter, main shutoff, and service entry.
Basically, I try to give the client as much information as possible, even if it’s only showing the location of these items for future reference. Association owned and maintained items like the pool and tennis courts do not need to be inspected, but it’s always nice to walk the property with the client and answer any questions he or she may have.
