Professional Home Inspection is a relatively recent concept in India and Gupta & Sen also provides professional home inspectors to our clients once they shortlist a home that they want to buy. A home inspector basically checks the safety parameters of the house focusing especially on the structure, construction and mechanical and electronic systems of the house and will make you aware of repairs needed for faulty installation or construction. The inspector will not evaluate whether or not you are getting a fair value on the house. The inspector only checks and will give an estimate on the repairing cost involved for:

  • The Electrical system
  • Plumbing & Waste Disposal
  • Water Heater
  • Insulation & Ventilation
  • Water source & quality
  • Potential Pest Problem
  • The Foundation
  • Doors, Windows, Ceilings, Walls, Floors & Roof
  • Hi Tech Security Systems, Home Automation Systems Promised by The Developer (if any)

Remember that is a good idea to have a thorough inspection of the house that you intend to buy before you sign on the offer documents because once the deal is closed you have bought the house ‘as is’. If you are in a hurry, you must include an ‘inspection’ clause in the offer during the negotiation phase. An inspection clause will give you an ‘exit’ route if it is discovered after buying the house that the developer or previous owner has reneged on the promises made before buying. The clause will give you the crucial ability to renegotiate the purchase price if serious problems are found which require expensive repairs. An inspection clause can also specify that the seller or developer must fix the problem(s) before you buy the house. Though not mandatory, as the future owner of the house you should be present when during the inspection of the house in order to be better informed about everything and to confirm the discrepancies found if any.
