Why Do I need a Home Inspection ???

Posted on: October 28th, 2011 by admin No Comments

Many people buying new homes have a false sense of security when it comes to the complete and proper construction of that home.  It has been my experience after many years of inspecting both new and resale properties that most people only obtain an inspection on a resale or used home.

The thinking is this; the home was designed by someone (architect), the town, city, or county reviewed the plans, a licensed contractor built it, and the Municipal Building Official inspected it so why would I need to get it inspected?  Well, here is the problem; many parts of the country do not require plans or plan reviews.  Many more parts of the country do not require contractors to be licensed.  Lastly, many areas, especially rural areas, do not have any type of Building Inspection at all!
