What is a Home Inspection?
Before the sale of a property, the buyer usually hires a professional home inspector to conduct thorough visual and physical examination of the building. In accordance with government standards, a building inspector identifies health, safety or serious defects in the structure of the building. A property inspector will look for items that are significantly defective, unsafe, near the end of their service life or not working properly
What do Home Inspectors look for?
A property inspector will look for structural problems with the roof, walls and foundations, leaks, damp damage, drainage issues, defective electrical, plumbing and gas installations, problems with finishes and anything else that can affect the value or safety of a home.
Many of the things on the home inspector’s checklist are safety items, for instance if safety glass is used appropriately, if stairs have sufficient handrails and guardrails and if electrical installations are safe.
