A home may be new, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be perfect behind the scenes. Sometimes newer homes have even more problems than older ones because new systems are in it that fall apart more easily. It’s really not a good idea to ignore a pest and general inspection because you think the home was just built and is in perfect shape from what you can see. While that may be the case, if you are wrong then it could cost you far more to fix it than you will have to pay to have a pre-purchase check done.
Commercial properties or buildings that may have different systems than a typical home need to be checked by the proper professional. The reason you need someone that is familiar with the kind of property you’re getting checked is that commercial options have to have proper measures in place that help it to abide by certain codes. There may have to be, for instance, some kind of fire protection in each room. If you don’t know these things and end up starting a company in a building it may turn into an expensive problem if you are violating code rules.
Pest and building inspections are a good idea during the process of seeing if a property is right for you. If the seller tried to sneak anything past you that was serious, then you know not to buy. You may also find a problem that’s easy to take care of and can get money off of the sale price because of it.
