Home Inspection Checklist
As many of us do before a purchase, we research the product. It is our job to give you an objective opinion on the health and safety of your soon-to-be investment. PacWest offers an extensive home inspection by licensed inspectors where we walk through and discuss every aspect of your property with you and your real estate agent. For every physical aspect and systematic feature of your home, we breakdown our findings into as many as 4 tabs within our Report: overview, information, limitations, and standards. Our goal is to outline the current condition of your roof, garage, sewer, etc. and how it compares to its corresponding safety standard. Items that fall short of these standards are labeled by their threat level from a simple cosmetic repair to an immediate safety concern. As an added measure, we run the make and model of your built-in appliances through our RecallChek program checking over 205 million recall reports from multiple public databases at no extra cost. PacWest Home Inspections puts all our focus on you.
When Is A Home Inspection Needed?
Home inspections are needed when you are buying a new piece of property. If a larger issue arises with a building’s electrical system or foundation, for example, you are given the leverage to back out of a sale with little to no penalties. Now, when you’re moving into a newly constructed home, the building company usually offers a home warranty lasting 1 to 3 years. Schedule a full home inspection before your warranty expires. Is a home inspection needed before your warranty is up? No. Is it prudent of new property owners? Yes. Because the responsibility of repairs is most likely still covered by the construction company. This saves you time and money down the line by addressing existing or developing problems now.
With our assistance, you’ll have all the information needed to make the most well-inform decisions for your property. And to help you understand what is involved in an Inspection we have included this handy checklist to give you a full picture view of what to expect.
