When purchasing a home, you may come across issues that the seller needs to remedy from your first inspection. But what about once the seller claims they’re completed?
Some repairs are pretty easy to see that they’ve been done correctly, but depending on where the repair was made, a re-inspection might be very much recommended.
Buyers might prefer to have an inspector verify that the repairs were done correctly, and it would generally be much better off to cover bases.
In most cases, if the seller hired licensed contractors to perform the work and is able to provide the scope of work and/or invoices, they insure the work done and have a warranty on it.
If the seller sub-contracted on their own, did the work themselves, or otherwise had the work done by someone or a company that wasn’t properly licensed/insured, then it’s in your best interest to have a re-inspection done.
You’ll also want to have another inspection done for things that are hard to reach or see.
Other inspections that you may need
Make sure you you cover all your bases.
