About to put an offer on a Central Coquitlam home? Here's one thing you will want to make sure you have in your contract - the right to a home inspection!
When you make an offer on a home, it’s a smart idea to have a professional home inspector check it out from top to bottom. This inspection will ensure that the property doesn’t have any unexpected “issues”. After all, you don’t want to buy a home only to discover that the roof needs to be replaced, immediately, for thousands of dollars.
But you won’t pick up all the issues a home inspector can. A home inspector will, for example, use a special device to check for moisture build-up in the washrooms – which can be an indication of mould.
He or she will also inspect wiring to make sure everything is safe and compliant with the building code.
