Charlotte Home Inspector Answers Questions About..
Why Should You Pay For Someone Else’s Mistakes?
Over the last several years I’ve heard Buyers of New Home
Construction repeat the same three reasons over and over again as to why
they didn’t get a Home Inspection and the truth of the matter is they
were mistaken. Here’s what they think:
Reason #1: I Trust My Builder!
The reality today is that most home builders are accountants,
financiers and occasionally job site managers. They have little or no
actual skills in construction. So who built your home?
Who actually built your new home are the sub-contractors that the
builder hires to do the work. So whether all of your new home functions
as it should and safely and with quality strictly depends on the
knowledge and skill of the sub-contractors. And candidly, the quality
of the sub-contractors varies greatly. Most sub-contractors are
unlicensed and unregulated, so who’s looking over their shoulder?
Reason #2: The House Is New What Could Be Wrong?
Even though all of the parts of the house you come in contact with
each and every day appear fine, there’s a lot more to your house than
meets the layman’s eye.
Here’s the real issue: were the mechanical and structural components
of the house put together properly. And, truthfully, most homeowners
don’t have the knowledge or skill to judge that aspect of a new home.
So here’s what happens in many cases. You go to sell your new home
sometime in the future. The buyer hires a home inspector to evaluate
the property for them. And low and behold the buyer’s home inspector
finds lots of things that were done improperly by the sub-contractors
and now the buyer wants you to make the necessary repairs.
So I’ll ask you again, why should you pay for someone else’s mistakes?
Reason # 3: The City Building Inspector Inspected The Home!
Here is a True Consumer Safeguard that has sadly gone bad!
Because of the housing boom over the last few years many City
Building Inspectors are forced to conduct 40 to 70 inspections daily.
These inspections have been reduced from quality checks to “drive by”
One of the other things many cities and towns have done to keep their
costs down is to let the new home builders opt out of the City
inspection Program and hire private home inspectors for their building
code compliance exams. Now, do you think there is a built in conflict
of interest here when the person building the house pays “his own
inspector” to pass his work?
