Protect your investment with a end of warranty home inspection
The single, most important thing you can do to protect yourself and the investment in your house is to have an end of warranty home inspection before your warranty expires.
Why do I need a end of warranty report?
- There is about a 50 % chance that your new house is built to current acceptable standards meaning there is a 50% chance that your house has defects that you should have looked at
- The trained eye of a buyer’s inspector can find defects that you can then have the builder address whilst still under warranty
- Your builder won’t remind you when the warranty is near to lapsing. Take charge of your investment
Only someone experienced like Fred Graham has the knowledge to advise you on what is defective. With clear understanding, you can hold your builder responsible. If you wait until the end of warranty – your builder has no recourse to make good on any defects. It will also document items that may be a concern in the future. That way if they do become problems it is on record that there was evidence of these problems before the warranty ended. Don’t wait until you sell your house and than have the buyer’s inspector list items that you could have had repaired under warranty. At that point, it will most likely be money out of your pocket to repair these defects so that the sale goes through.
