New construction (punch-list) inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
Typically 3 inspections are performed at various phases as the home is built.
This inspection is performed after trenches or footers have been dug and all metal and pipe casings and/or liners have been put into place, but before pouring concrete.
This inspection is performed prior to drywall or other interior wall covering is installed.
This inspection is conducted when all construction is complete. This is basically the same inspection we do on all houses new or used (pre-purchase inspection as noted above). On new houses, it must be coordinated with the builder’s schedule to be sure all systems are complete and ready for occupation. It should be completed before closing with enough time remaining to accomplish any necessary repairs. It is the final inspection to verify that all structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are installed and operating as intended, meeting or exceeding all requirements of the Standard of Practice as written for your state of residence, i.e. Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), Arkansas Home Inspector Board (AHIB), and American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
Investor property inspections are performed prior to the purchase as well as periodically during ownership with special emphasis being placed on possible safety and liability issues along with parking lot and lighting concerns. Investment property inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
