Home inspections can be nerve wracking, even for the most seasoned buyer. While you may feel satisfied with the initial inspection, problems can (and sometimes do) arise. From inaccurate quotes to missed damages, home reinspection can help give you peace of mind and identify any issues that may have been overlooked. If you are considering a reinspection, there are a few things you should know. Because of this, we have provided a quick guide to help you decide if this is the right step for you!
What is a reinspection?
Home reinspection is essentially a revisit of the initial inspection that helps determine if the previous issues have been resolved properly. Reinspection can also help evaluate and identify additional concerns that may have not been addressed during the first inspection. Like your original home inspection, reinspection requires the inspector to examine the entire property, inside and out. Oftentimes, the inspector will check to make sure any agreed upon repairs have been made, assess any additional problem areas, and evaluate any other repair costs. It is very important that prior to your home reinspection you discuss with your realtor and inspector what areas you feel need additional attention. You should also communicate a detailed list of the repairs expected, so your inspector can determine if those issues have been appropriately resolved.
When should I consider a home reinspection?
Although reinspection is not always necessary, it can be beneficial. If you have reason to believe the seller of your soon-to-be home is not adequately funding or making the agreed upon repairs, a home reinspection can help with this process. As unbiased professionals, home inspectors are expected to accurately determine the state and cost of home repairs. Reinspection is also useful if you feel the initial inspection misquoted or neglected an issue. By communicating the exact concern to your inspector, they can re-examine the area and determine if any mistakes were made. If you have any of these or other concerns about your home inspection, we highly recommend you consider Aspen Claims’ Re-Scope reinspection services
. The Re-Scope program offers a customizable menu of quality assurance options and provides you with a complete written report and photos of findings.
What should I expect during a reinspection?
What you should expect during a reinspection does somewhat depend on the reason you are seeking this service. For instance, if you are concerned about a missed problem, your inspector’s greatest priority should be to evaluate and examine the issue. The process should only take a few hours, depending on the size of the home or magnitude of the problem. Above all else, during reinspection you should expect a thorough and unbiased report of the inspector’s findings, which you will always receive with Aspen Claims’ Re-Scope services.
