A Traditional Brampton home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units. A Brampton home inspection can be likened to a physical exam by a physician; however, it should be clearly understood that a Brampton home inspection is not to be confused with an appraisal, a building code inspection, a guarantee of any kind, and/or an insurance policy on the condition of the property.
During a Brampton Traditional home inspection, the home inspector will review the readily accessible exposed portions of the structure of the home, including the roof, the attic, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, basement, and foundation as well as the heating/air conditioning systems, interior plumbing and electrical systems for potential problems. Brampton home inspection professionals are not intended to point out every small problem or any invisible or latent defect in a home. Most minor or cosmetic flaws, for example, should be apparent to the buyer without the aid of a professional.
Our home inspectors are typically hired by a potential homebuyer right after the offer to purchase contract is signed, prior to executing the final purchase and sales agreement. However, before the potential buyer signs the offer to purchase contract, he/she should be sure that there is an home inspection clause in the contract making the purchase obligation contingent upon the findings of a professional Brampton home inspection. This clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.
