Some valid points/reasons why having an Inspection done on a condo:
WHAT WILL BE INSPECTED:
The "Interior Only" inspection will focus on health/safety, moisture intrusion, functional testing, and inspecting for components improperly installed, nearing or exceeding their design life.
The Inspection will include the following:
- heating and central air conditioning systems
- Interior plumbing
- Electrical systems
- The roof
- The attic, visible insulation
- Walls, ceilings, floors, windows, foundations, and basements
These are among the key inspection points. Inspections may also include appliances and outdoor plumbing.
The inspection will last between 1.5-2.5 hours depending on the size and age of the property. The cost of an "Interior Only" inspection starts around $250 and up again depending on size/age of unit.
And, most importantly, be there!
Your investment of money and spending these few hours with the inspector could prevent headaches and save time in the future. The inspector may also point out little flaws or oddities that don't measure up to being mentioned in the report, but may warrant keeping an eye on.
