Warranty Inspection For Brand New Home Buyers
Don’t skip an inspection simply because the home is brand new!
A new home inspection is identical to any other inspection we would do on an older home. However because it is a brand new home we are more picky and detailed to the T. We pick on cosmetic issues, inoperative lighting fixtures and other items we would typically not call out on older homes because when you move into a brand new home, it is expected that it is just that – Brand New.
You waited quite sometime for the home to be built and in turn the home should reflect all the perks of being the first occupant.
Importantly again is that most home builders in Halifax and all of HRM Nova Scotia provide a one-year warranty with their homes to ensure it is free of defects at no extra costs to you within that year. Typically, during this period of time the buyer develops some sort of punch list of items for the contractor or builders to repair under the warranty coverage. Many defects are not be obvious to the untrained eye and you should hire a professional home inspector.
We recommend two inspections within this warranty period. First one before moving in or within thirty days of possession to make sure everything operates as they should. The second at the 11th month to take full advantage of your warranty before it expires . The outcome of both inspections will form a chunk of the items that should be presented to your builder for revision alongside those you have picked on. A lot can happen in eleven months and some problems will only become apparent as the home’s systems and components get regular use.
Once the warranty year elapses, any items to fix or repair will typically be your financial responsibility. It is therefore wise and smart to us inspect your home before your new home warranty expires.
Most innovative, creative and technology driven.
