Before your home buying comes to the contract phase, you should make sure to conduct a home inspection before you decide to close the contract. When you buy a house, you incur many costs. You pay for the lawyer, bank, mortgage broker, realtor and other fees. Not to mention the cost of buying the house itself. If you think that skipping the home inspection is okay to save money, then you are wrong.
Having the property inspected by professional home inspectors is the best thing to do before you decide to buy the property. Through a good building inspection service, the real condition of the house will be revealed. All critical information and all the systems in the house like electrical and plumbing will be reported to you through an inspection report. If there are issues present, you will be informed so you can have the information you need for the cost of repair or replacement and other maintenance costs that the home may require immediately or in the future. And if you find that the house does not meet your requirements, you can even back out of the contract. That can save you a lot of money.
Building inspections are known to help in finding out if the property was built illegally or there are illegal additions and alterations done in the house. Examples are additional rooms, extensions and altered garages. These may have been built or constructed not following the safety building standards. Are these important? Of course. If the council does not approve these modifications or if these are not certified, it can affect the insurance policy, taxes as well as the overall value of the house. Come to think of it, without building inspection you may end up buying a house that may cost you a lot of money to have it certified or amended. And worse, you may need to have those additions demolished. You may also be buying a house with no added value to it.
Note that these issues can’t only be found in older homes. Even some new houses may have defects too. There may be systems that are installed without following the strict standards provided by the law. Issues like these will become your financial problem as it will be your responsibility to have it fixed after you purchase the property.
