Post Purchase Inspections

What is a post purchase inspection?

A post purchase inspection is a home inspection performed after the settlement of a home. A post purchase inspection is meant for people who had to forgo their inspection in order to buy their home. If you were unable to have an inspection while buying your home, for any reason, a post purchase inspection is for you!

We also offer radon testing and WDI inspections for those who had to forgo them during the home buying proccess.

 

A post purchase inspection is performed the same as an inspection taken during the home buying process. It will give you unbiased comprehensive insight into your home, including any major defects in the home. All our inspections are carried out by ASHI-certified home inspectors. They will use their breadth of knowledge and experience to give you a deeper understanding of your home. For further information on our inspections click here.

Should I get a Post Purchase Inspection?

Anyone who has recently purchased a house without an inspection should get a post-purchase inspection. While we recommend everyone get an inspection before purchasing their home, we understand current circumstances can prevent an inspection. Luckily it is never too late to gain a better understanding of your home. A post-purchase inspection will shed light on the condition of your home. This insight is vital to keeping your home in tip-top shape. Knowledge gained from an inspection can reveal defects within the home so you can address them before they worsen.
