The Importance of Building Inspections For Your Home!!

Nov 15th 2015 at 9:56 PM

When most people hear about building inspections, the first thought is usually about the hustle of getting a building inspection done. Additionally, many people think that building inspections can be expensive and this discourages them from finding out more about how building inspections can benefit them. In all truth, building inspections are actually designed to benefit everyone in the real estate world, it is unfortunate that some people have created such a bad impression of building inspections. As with most other professions, this shouldn’t be a strange phenomenon because every profession has so called ‘bad apples’. What is important is to understand what building inspections are all about and how they can benefit you. For example, if you know how to make maximum use of a building inspection you can shave off a huge part of the cost of a home that you are buying. Additionally, you will know what to look for when buying a home so that you don’t buy a home that will cost you more than you had anticipated. Furthermore, once you already own a home, and especially if you have owned the home for a long time, you will know what to look for to ensure that safety standards in the home are as high as they can be, and that you can find the right help to update your home in order to protect your household. Below are some reasons for why you should take time to better understand building inspections.

First of all, as previously mentioned, whether you are buying a new home or whether you have lived in the same home for a long time, having a building inspection done on your home can uncover defects or issues with your home. In essence, having a private building certifier come and have a look at a home that you are interested in, or live in, can uncover issues can save you a lot of money or better yet prevent accidents, injuries or illnesses.

For example, in most countries when someone is selling a home, they are obliged to divulge information about any issues with a house. However, if they are not aware of an issue, or if they are unscrupulous enough to deny knowledge of a certain issue then it will be up to you to find out and uncover any issues. For instance, a newly painted ceiling can easily hide mould in a home and if this is not discovered soon enough, the mould can cause health issues to the inhabitants of the home. Having a building inspection done on the home can uncover such issues. Moreover, getting a private certifier have a look at a home can help you understand all the issues in a home before selling or buying a home. This way you will be able to receive a true reflection of the value of the property that is in consideration.
