Nervous about your inspection?
The process can be stressful. A home inspection should give you peace of mind, although initially it sometimes has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb considerable information in a short time, which includes a written report, photographs, environmental reports, and comments by inspector during the inspection. All of this, combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you personally notice, can make the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will involve your home inspector making maintenance recommendations, giving life expectancy for various systems and components, and noting minor imperfections. This information is useful. However, the important issues will fall into four categories:
- Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
- Issues that lead to major defects, such as a small roof flashing leak.
- Items that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home.
- Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live bus bar at the electrical panel.
Anything in these categories that was noted during your home inspection in should be addressed. Often, a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and often surprised to learn of defects found during a home inspection. Sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect so keep things in perspective and know that, more often than not, defects can be repaired fairly easily. Your inspector is available to answer any questions or concerns you have and will help in whatever way possible to assist you through this process.
