What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual assessment of the condition of a home or property. The inspection is carried out according to a tried and trusted formula based on over 22 years experience in the field. The purpose is to uncover existing faults and identify potential problems.
Why do I need a home inspection?
A home is the largest financial purchase most people will ever make.
 It makes sense to find out as much as you can about the house you are interested in, before you buy.

 That way you can avoid costly surprise repair bills and problems with your new home.

 Our report will also advise you of what maintenance is required to keep your home in top condition.

 A professional inspection will give you a clear picture of the many systems and structural elements that make up the property.  If you are selling your home, a listing inspection will point out any potential problems that might be uncovered later by the buyer’s inspector. (Finding them early will allow you to address them before listing your home, making for a faster and smoother sale.)
What does a home inspection exclude?
 The inspection does not cover electrical systems because, by law, an Electrical Certificate of Compliance must be obtained when a property is sold and before the Local Authority will connect the electricity supply.

 We do make use of qualified and registered electrical contractors to inspect and issue CoC’s.
Do I need to be there during the inspection?
 No. We can arrange access via the estate agent if required.

 An inspection may take several hours and the report will be thorough and easy to understand.
