The importance of Home Inspection
Whether a house is a newly-constructed house or a 100-year-old building, a home inspection is important for every building. New home buyers can have the expectations that their new home will be free from any concerns but the scenario is not always so. Cosmetic flaws or electrical and plumbing issues can be found in both new and existing/old homes. Here we have to understand one thing that the issues in the home do not necessarily depend on the age of the home. The excitement of buying a new home or moving into a new home many a time makes us forget to conduct a Professional Home Inspection. We take it for granted that the house is issue-free. Also some of the times we ignore doing a professional home inspection thinking it as a waste of time and money. Homebuyers or owners a lot of times consider professional home inspection as an extra cost in which they should not invest. If you have a professional home inspection, you can avoid the nightmare that you might face 6 months down the line.
The construction workers can do a bad job, they might make mistakes knowingly or unknowingly and they won’t even have any botheration about it. They know they have to finish it within a time frame and hence they focus on finishing the work by hook or by crook. Their supervisor might miss out on some critical or simple issues while checking or simply may not be that kind of a responsible person. So in this whole matter, construction is getting affected, and when a buyer buys or takes it on rent that person will be getting the home/flat with all those issues.
Not a penny more
As I was mentioning earlier some people think professional home inspection to be utterly useless. They have this notion that if they are buying a new home/apartment, then everything is perfect. They don’t realize that there can be hidden concerns that will pop up its head after a few months of living in that house. These persons omit the expense of professional home inspection while making the budget for the home purchase. According to them, they are saving money. But Alas! they do not know what might be waiting for them in the future. Issues like damp on the wall with your favourite wallpaper or water clogging in the bathroom due to uneven slope, an electrical problem because of incorrect wiring, and many such things can crop up after a year or so or maybe even earlier. If they would have done a professional home inspection before or after purchasing the home, they would have suffered less monetarily and would also have peace of mind. Trying to save a penny, ultimately made them shell out more money in the long run.
The builder has to correct the issues/RERA Act
Your new home has issues and you are wrecking your head as to who will correct them? The Government has launched an ingenious act – Real Estate Regulation & Development Act (RERA, India), 2016 that states 5 years free-of-cost guarantee from structural / workmanship defect or any other quality or provision of services or any other obligations of the promoter from the date of possession of new homes. You can rest in peace now because your builder has to rectify such mistakes and that also free of cost.
