Pre-Purchase Home Inspections
Th general Pre-Purchase Home Inspection is intended to give you, the client an unbiased understanding of the physical condition of the buildings and property in order to make an informed decision. A regular home inspection is not a guarantee of any kind, nor is it a code inspection or an appraisal.
A Pre-Purchase Home Inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the internal and external, accessible areas of a residential property, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. It includes the systems and components as can be found in InterNachi’s Standards of Practice such as the surface grading and drainage, roofing, exterior, basement, foundation and structure, heating and cooling, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, attic, insulation and ventilation, doors, windows and the interior.
The Pre-Purchase Home Inspection report is one of the most important aspects of the home inspection process. It is imperative to have a professional, clear, comprehensive reporting system. SureWorx Inspection Services Inc.’s detailed reporting system is designed for your presentation. A concise, step-by-step format will help ensure that the details have been addressed in the inspection. The easy to read report design makes it user-friendly for you, the client. We prefer to present it in electronic format but we will print it for you on request.
Buying a home is one of the biggest investment decisions of your life. Even the most experienced homeowner can benefit by having a prospective purchase inspected by a professional inspector to evaluate and itemize the positive aspects as well as problematic conditions that may not be obvious. This way, you can minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterwards, and you will learn the positive points of a home, as well as the maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property you are about to purchase, and will be able to make a confident buying decision.
