Code Inspections where there is no local authority.

Home Inspector with Inspector Mike #2116

Building or buying a new home in an area that has no local inspections? You better get an inspection.

I do not mean a Home Inspection I mean an inspection by someone who knows the code. The code that I am referring to is The 2006 Residential Code of Ohio. All new construction must meet these requirements.

While Home Inspectors are good at finding defects in existing structures they do not have the training, the knowledge or the certifications to provide a quality inspection.

If you are a Realtor selling a new construction home in an area with no local inspections you need to give me a call. You do not want your client buying a lemon do you?

This blog is for those buying a new home in an area with no building (code) inspections.

Are you qualified to do a code inspection? NO.

Can you tell a buyer that the electric was properly installed? NO.

Can you tell the buyer that the home was built per the construction plans? NO.

So what exactly would you inspect on a new construction home?

What standard would you use?
