When planning to buy a property, it is recommended that the purchaser make an initial reconnaissance survey of the property before the Home Inspection team comes into the picture.
It could be even better if you could take a friend or two along so that you get different perspectives too.
If such a visit is made, when the Home inspection team is on board you could discuss the areas of concern and also be better aware of what is being discussed.
When you go to look at the property, watch out for the following:
- Check for water flow from taps
- Proper closing of doors and windows
- Any damp or musty smells
- Cracks on walls
