Whether you are buying or selling a property home inspection services will be required at some point of time. Though traditionally property buyers have availed of the services of home inspection services, we also advise property sellers to also carry out home inspection services when they decide to sell their property. As a property seller, before you carry out the property transfer, it is extremely important to check whether the whole property is in order so that the deal does not get stalled at the last minute when the buyer carries out his own home inspection. And of course as a property buyer it is mandatory to conduct a home inspection when before signing on the dotted line. Not only does a home inspection report help the buyer in verifying that all the details that the seller has provided are in order, it also helps to keep a track of the current state of the property and the exact list of repairs and renovations that needs to be done within the property in the near future.

Having a proper list of these items can help property buyers and sellers during price negotiations and reduces or totally negates the risk of expensive repairs and renovations.

Home Inspection FAQ

What Services Are Included Under Home Inspection?

Home inspection is basically a service where some consultants enter a home that is on sale and check for problems and make a report of it and give it to the buyer. These services include a throrough checkup of various facilities that are included along with a property, such as:

  • Wiring – The various electric linings and electrical appliances in the residential property. In case, there is any malfunctioning in the electrical network or in any gadget or switch, then the inspector makes a note of these. The information could be either provided to the buyer or seller as per preference.
  • Plumbing – The water system that is present in the house could have some leakage, or a faucet or pipeline valve could be problematic.
  • Interiors – The furnishing or the décor of the house could need some sort of repair. The latch of the door, the marble tiling or the woodwork of the showcases could need a touchup. The whitewashing or paintjob are also checked by the inspectors
  • Miscellaneous – The inspector also checks the toilets, bathrooms and other less-noticeable accessories, like power backup or any other facilities that are not covered under the above are enlisted under this.
