The New Home or Renovation Inspection

Buyers of new homes are frequently under the misguided impression that the municipality's building department inspector has performed all the necessary inspections.  This couldn't be further from the truth.  The typical building department inspector, because of work load, doesn't have the time it takes to spend in a new home or renovation to inspect everything from top to bottom.  He will most likely concern himself with code enforcement issues and not worry so much about how the systems and components are functioning.

Buyers are cautioned, if work was recently performed on a home like new kitchens, new bathrooms or other renovations they must check to determine if the real estate taxes were updated. A favorite trick is to completely renovate a home and put it on the market quickly, before the real estate tax increase hits the books. New home buyers are then surprised by the new tax bill when they can least afford it.

Home buyers of new or renovated houses who hire independent home inspectors are much better off because they get the undivided attention of a qualified and experienced home inspector for two to three hours compared to the building department inspector's fifteen minute visit.

Remember, always make sure any contract you sign is contingent on the outcome of the home inspection.
