Home Inspections


Our home inspections are detailed and thorough. We cover more items in your home than can be listed here, but below are just a few of the many items included in your home inspection:

Buyer Inspections

Congratulations, you did it! You have finally found your perfect home and, like most buyers, you'll want to have it inspected as soon as possible. The Home Inspection is your chance to find out what's really going on ‘under the hood’ before you fully commit to your important purchase. Over the course of a few hours, the Home Inspector will review critical home systems and probe every nook and cranny of the property's exterior and interior, including under the house and attic space where possible.

A proper Home Inspection educates you on the true condition and safety of the home that you are about to purchase. The bottom line is that you need to KNOW what you are buying.

Most home purchase contracts include an inspection contingency, which gives the buyer the right to back out of the deal if the inspection uncovers major previously-undisclosed flaws. Alternatively, the buyer can ask the seller to take care of necessary repairs. In some cases, the seller may negotiate a cash refund

Seller Inspections

Planning to sell your property? Preempt any unexpected surprises during the selling process by having it inspected before putting it on the market. An objective, detailed examination of the physical structure and systems of the building gives you the time and opportunity to make repairs that will put your property in a better selling condition. With an inspection from Lawrence Real Estate Inspections, not only will you be aware of your building’s potential defects; you also will have the knowledge to fend off any unrealistic requests by buyers for cost of repairs, thus allowing you to regain more of the value of your property.

Manufactured Home Inspections

Manufactured/Mobile homes are built in a factory and transported to a property site. They are not the same as conventional “stick-built” homes and are regulated by a different agency, and have different building standards.

While quality control is high at the factory where these homes are built, quality control is not consistent at the site where these homes are assembled. Different contractors hired to put these homes together are often doing several jobs at the same time and this can leave room for error.

As you can see, it is very important to hire a certified mobile/manufactured home inspector that has been trained to inspect these unique homes.

New Construction Inspections

 

Even a new construction home can have many issues that were missed – both by the builder and the local code enforcer. Have an inspection done to prevent unpleasant surprises.
