House Inspection and Why it is Important

House Inspection and Why it is Important

There are different reasons why you may want to purchase a house; however, there are some vital parts to consider before purchasing the house. Most times, there are a lot of costs associated with purchasing the house that it can get really overwhelming, so much so that you begin to look for ways to reduce the costs. Regardless of the total cost at that moment, one cost that you should never do away with is the house inspection, because it is very important, and you will find out why.

  • Safety and Health Conditions

One of the most important needs a human has is staying safe and healthy, and with a house inspection, you can ascertain whether the house is safe for you or not. There are different tests that will be carried out, including carbon monoxide, mold, radon, and other tests that could pose a health hazard to occupants of the house. It is imperative that the contract allows for opting out of the purchase if hazards are detected.

  • Not Interested? Opt-Out

Perhaps you have carried out the house inspection, and you are not comfortable with the results, you have the opportunity to cancel the negotiation. This is a very important reason for carrying out a house inspection. The report from the inspection can reveal a lot of irregularities. If the irregularities will cost you so much to fix, then you have the choice to either go ahead with the purchase or opt out of it.

  • A Chance to Renegotiate

If you just buy a house without carrying out a house inspection, it could be really disheartening when you move in and discover you have to spend so much on repairs and fixes. However, when you carry out a house inspection prior to buying the house, you can renegotiate with the seller and either ask them to make the necessary repairs or ask that the price be reviewed. In this case, it is important to get your realtor involved; as they will help you better understand the renegotiation process and the requests that can be made.

  • Permits, Standards, and Codes

There are some houses that have illegal room additions and installations. The seller may not tell you about them because they want to get the property out of their hands as soon as possible. There are penalties attached to not having proper permits for additions and installations, and you do not want to have to deal with that. Hence, it is imperative to carry out a house inspection, as it will reveal whether there are irregularities that need to be dealt with or not.
