Buying a home is the most expensive purchase that most people will ever make. There are no guarantees. There are no money back policies. There are no satisfaction of purchase agreements. That is why you need to learn as much as you can about potential problems before you make a commitment on a property.
A home inspection is a non-invasive examination of the condition of a home.. This is carried out by a home inspector, who has special equipment and training to carry out such inspections. A home inspection report is then issued by the home inspector.
A home inspection report is a comprehensive analysis of the systems of your home including structural, mechanical and electrical. The completed report outlines issues and provides recommends that professional in that field be consulted, or offers recommendations on care and maintenance. It is a user manual for your home.
Following is a list of some of the items that are commonly inspected:
Problems revealed do not have to mean that the house should not be purchased. All identifiable issues are fully described and a recommendation is made as to the probable cause and where to turn to fix it.. Sometimes, just knowing what issues there are is enough information to make a sound decision.
A home inspection is not to be used as a way out of a contract. If an issue is overwhelming, then it is probably best not to buy. In most cases many people are capable either financially or experienced enough to fix identified issues. Knowing in advance is what an inspection is all about.
