Home Buyers Dilemma
When building is under builder’s warranty, why should I spend on Home Inspection service?
This is a dilemma faced by many home owners.
When builder offers to repair any defects brought his notice in specific period, it may sound unwise to spend on inspection.
This argument has three flaws:
- You may not notice many issues which require check by experienced professional : You will only get issues resolved which are very obvious and miss out many, due to lack of experience.
- Many issues may not be found by you now but will surface after a period when warranty has expired : Experienced professional can detect such issues and save the hardship and cost of getting it repaired yourself after the warranty period
- There is a good chance of Builder rectifying the issues if and only if you highlight the issue through a professional home inspectors report : making it a pre-condition for takeover than expecting him to resolve during warranty period.
So spending a small amount on Home inspection compared to your investment, is definitely a wise step you should not miss.
