Should I trust any building inspector when I am buying a house?

Filed Under: Resources    by: admin

If my building inspector’s report only protects him, but doesn’t tell my rights if he misses something obvious, what should I do?

It is best if you look for a general contractor that could inspect your house and could also provide you with a written report about all major items in a building, including Foundation, Structural Frames, Roofing, Plumbing and Electrical among other major building elements.

Most of the inspection-only specialists use a cookie-cutter approach and a pre-written contract that excludes just about everything from omissions to crass errors, not allowing for any kind of indemnification even if the inspection is botched. That defies the purpose of a building report, which is to catch big ticket items before you get stuck with the problem.

Think of it this way, if the report has one million clauses protecting the inspector, and nothing delineating your rights if something obvious is later found to be amiss, how can you trust that report?
