The home inspection is a part of your due diligence: to find out if the condition of the home you are buying is really what it seems to be. In Virginia,we are a caveat emptor state which essentially means buyer beware. Even if the seller has not disclosed a problem it does not mean the problem does not exist.
The average seller only know that when they flip a switch a light comes on. When they turn a faucet water comes out. They usually have not been in the attic, the crawlspace, or roof, since they bought the house; if they were ever there.
The home inspection is part of the buyers due diligence, to make certain that what you are buying is what you expect and are willing to accept. Our Charlottesville home inspection addendum gives the buyer the right to have the structure, foundation, geotechnical systems, roof, flooring, heat and air conditioning systems, electrical, plumbing, appliances, exterior insulation finishing systems, drainage, windows, well, septic, lead based paint and radon levels checked. Any further inspections that may be needed will allow you to have a structural engineer, environmental scientist, contractors, or other professionals inspect the home.
You should only use a ASHI certified inspector with a lot of inspection experience, in my opinion. I have excellent recommendations if you would like to contact me.
In making a purchase that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, this information to you is power. A thorough home inspection gives you the information you need to make a wise decision. A qualified inspector will make certain the report you receive is unbiased and accurate.
