What can happen to me if I don't have my future home inspected by a qualified building inspector?
You will not tighten protection against hidden defects. A qualified inspector with “Errors and omissions” insurance will be able to compensate you in the event of an error or omission.
You will not be able to know the work and or renovation to be done on your future home. A building inspector can inform you of the proper functioning of your home and the work to be done in the future. This will prevent premature deterioration of your home.
Avoid buying a house in poor condition. When the sales contract is conditional on the inspection of the building, you will be able to have the sale canceled in the event of a major failure of the building.
Do business with a qualified building inspector: you will avoid losing a lot of money.
There have been several unfortunate situations where new owners who did not have their homes inspected had to pay tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.
