You’ve seen a property you like, but how can you trust the information given to you by the estate agent or seller? Simple; you run this home inspection checklist!
Whilst many buyers hire a professional home inspector, the actual knowledge and qualifications of these can vary wildly – one of the ways to ensure a quality service whilst still picking up on any faults which could lower the property price is to follow this checklist yourself..
Bear in mind that some banks require a home inspection as a condition of the mortgage, and in this case a written certification from a professional is required. However, if you are uncertain of their quality you can pass this checklist on to them to follow!
We also have articles on the best real estate apps and several other free real estate checklists for you to check out.
