Reasons To Get an HOA Inspection
Reduce the risk of costly repairs
Issues with multi-unit buildings can be extremely expensive to repair. Complications with heating systems, leaking roofs, or compromised walkways will become worse over time and much more costly to deal with later down the line. It’s better to keep up with routine HOA inspections to avoid expensive repairs that didn’t need to exist in the first place.
Protect those living in the building
When a building falls into disrepair, it can create unsafe conditions for the residents that live within it. It’s important to keep the safety of those living in multi-unit buildings a top priority. Routine HOA inspections will ensure that the building is safe and that potential safety hazards are identified.
Ensure contractors complete the job correctly
As an impartial party, a building inspector is going to make unbiased determinations on the quality of work that happens with the complex. If contractors or property management companies do not perform repairs/work in a timely and accurate manner, an HOA inspection will document the discrepancies for the association management to use.
What areas of the building will a building inspector check during an HOA inspection?
An inspector will review all common areas of the building as well as roofing, exteriors, porches, decks, structural foundations, and all shared utilities.
What issues can an HOA inspection help identify?
For association management, it’s critical to know how safe the shared building is and what areas need attention before they become liabilities. For example, a building inspector will check walkways, driveways, parking lots, and roadways for any signs that a slip-and-fall could occur.
Will the building inspector inspect each condo unit while completing an HOA inspection?
The building inspector will not go into each unit of the multi-unit building. It is illegal to enter a unit without permission from the owner or court order. The inspector will look at all shared spaces and shared amenities within the property.
Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.
Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.
Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.
During a commercial property inspection, we help buyers of commercial buildings better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase. Just like our home inspection services, we make sure that our commercial inspections are thorough and backed by our experienced and dedicated inspectors. We provide you with a detailed report that clearly breaks down our findings and recommendations.
