 Home Inspection specialists Why you need Professional Building Inspector?

As a seller, if you are planning to get your building/home inspected, you should plan to assist the inspector during the whole process. If it’s a buyer initiated inspection, it is much preferable if you are not present. You need to know in advance of any inspection. The property inspector will generally schedule the inspection for a time convenient to both you and the buyer to make sure you get enough time to make preparations. Whether you arrange the inspection as a seller, or have inspected by the buyer, you can take several precautionary steps which will benefit you and helps in the inspection process:

 

Building Inspections Services  Make sure the building inspector can access all areas of the property:

Clear all furniture, clothes, boxes toys and other personal stuff that could block access to the important areas of your building like furnace, electrical panels, water heater, attic crawl spaces, etc. Inspectors cannot enter inaccessible areas.

Not only they might be in the way, but as the hatch is removed, dust, insulation, loose plaster is likely to fall from the ceiling onto items left in the closet.

 

If you are expecting a visit from prospective buyer or an inspector :

  • Clear out the areas under sinks so they can be inspected.
  • Ensure that filters are clear in heaters, air conditioners, vents, drains, etc.
  • Have the building/house cleaned thoroughly.

The few error an inspector finds with the building, the better overall image the property (building, house) presents to the prospective buyer. Its Obvious, for your advantage if the buyer hears the inspector saying, Everything on this property (building, house) is right except for a couple little issues here and there, rather than hearing a long list of concerns.

 

Additional notes to property (building, house) sellers

The building/home inspector may override your timers (such as automatic sprinklers, outdoor lighting, etc.). You need to check them after the inspection is done, to ensure they are reset properly. Remember to allow 2-3 hours for the property (building, house) inspection.
