Owning a house is a journey.
It is an experience of continuous development and unfolding, from the moment you decide to buy the house until you decide to sell it or pass it on to your heirs.
From actual house hunting to due diligence, from identifying well-known builders to performing maintenance-related tasks, this is a lifetime experience with multiple components.
One of the components is property inspection.
After choosing the perfect house, it is crucial to check the property before you get ownership.
Doing so, as you expect, ensures that you return home under the promised conditions.
If you are buying a house, make sure to check the property with the following points in mind.
Measurement one of the basic things to check during the property inspection is measurement.
This mainly starts with the size of the room at home.
Bring your tape measure with you to make sure the size fits the advertising of the developer or seller.
Another thing to use for measurements is whether your existing furniture can fit comfortably into your new home.
If not, you may need to change the furniture or consider redecorating the house.
Leakage and drainage next thing to check is whether there is leakage or leakage on the wall and ceiling.
There may be a leak in the bathroom on the floor upstairs and it may spread to your home.
In addition, structural failures can cause the monsoon to destroy your new home.
It is also a good idea to make sure there is a proper drainage system in the home and have the right slope to avoid the possibility of clogging or flooding.
Damage to house resale is often overlooked.
This may include cracks in walls or ceilings, broken windows or cabinet doors, damaged granite or floors, etc.
Every case of damage should be recorded, implied, and fixed by the seller before you have ownership.
Install pipes around the home to ensure that they function properly and contain only high-quality materials.
More and more modern houses include HVAC systems, gas pipelines, smoke detectors, etc.
Contact the appropriate third party
Check the party inspectors of these systems for safety and functionality.
The electrical connection should also be checked at this time.
From miniature circuit breakers to individual plug points, make sure reliable electricians confirm they are all safe before you are ready to move in.
Another aspect you should ask about is the amenities promised.
If the facilities mentioned by the developer have not been delivered yet, you should not pay for them.
This can give you some room to negotiate at a lower price.
When the property is not checked before delivery, you may encounter unexpected failures when moving in.
Be meticulous in checking and make sure your home is delivered to you in the way you expect.
