A Complete Buyer’s Home Inspection Checklist

Buying a home is an exciting and rewarding time. While you might not be able to wait to get your keys and move into your new dwelling, it’s a good idea to pump the brakes and make sure your home is in the best condition before settling in. For this reason, we have compiled a list of all of the potential experts you might need to call to get a thorough inspection on your new home. Even more importantly, secure your investment with a customized Norwich Home Insurance policy.

Structural engineer.

If your doors won’t close properly or there are obvious breaks in the foundation or walls, you need to enlist the help of a certified structural engineer. This could be a huge cost to you, so be sure to gather an objective opinion and negotiate the repair expenses into the closing costs.

Pest inspector.

Soft or rotted would could indicate termite and pest damage. Consult with a pet inspector if you find these in your home, especially if they are paired with any kind of animal droppings.

Landscaping professional.

Do you have a wet yard? Does it slope toward the house? Poor drainage can cause costly water damage and flooding, explains House Logic. If your run off runs toward your home rather than away from it, it’s time to call a landscaper.

Toxic substance specialist.

If you purchased an older home, asbestos, radon, lead and mold could be present. Each one of these requires its own specialist.

Arborist.

While giant trees may look stunning, their roots and looming branches can cause serious structural, foundation, and roof damage. If you are surrounded by trees that are a little too close for comfort, contact a certified arborist.
