Benefits of having a property inspection.

By having the home inspected from top to bottom allows you to place the correct value on the property you are bonding, but more importantly allows you to assess the health of the house.
This will enable you to also evaluate the homeowner insurance for the house without paying for unnecessary claims which may be due to no maintenance on the property ie. roof leaks, damp, plumbing issues which were not seen at time of purchase by the homeowner.
Not only does this evaluation of the property protect the banks interest in the house but also protects the new homeowner from any unforeseen circumstances before the purchase of the property as hefty repair bills may cause the new owner unnecessary financial strain at the beginning of the purchase of their house amongst other initial expenses that have already been outlaid.

Other legal required inspections carried out for the sale of properties.

If they are available at time of inspection:

• Approved plan: check if plan is same as current house
• Electrical certificates: Property and Electric fence

Our registrations & affiliations.

• Certified and trained through SAHITA (The South African Home Inspection Training Academy)
• NABISA (National Association of Building Inspectors of South Africa)

Examples of typical compliance inspections.
