ELECTRIC INSPECTION July 3rd 2021
Whether you are selling your home or looking to buy a new one, home inspections are an important part of the real estate process. Be prepared to add a home inspection clause to your agreement. Adding a home inspection clause ensures both the seller and home-buyer that the important elements of your home are in good repair and up to code.
Here is what to be prepared for as Sellers and/or Buyers:
• Be Prepared. - If you don’t remember the last time your home had an electrical inspection, you’ll want to have a licensed professional check-out your wiring well before you put your home up for say.
• Pay Attention to Details. - Take this time to replace all your old light bulbs, wipe-down dusty unused outlets and make sure the electrical panel is properly labelled.
• Make Way for the Inspection. - Keep up with the tidiness of your home and electrical lighting/outlets. Clear all areas where inspectors will be working (ex: the attic, electrical panel, and furnace areas)
• Know Your Inspector. - Most often, your realtor will suggest you a home inspector, but it is important to do your own research too! Always look into an inspector’s credentials
• Attend The Inspection. - Show up to the inspection and ask for the inspector to take pictures of any issues. Remember, these professionals can only report what they see, and an extra set of eyes can always help.
• Come With Questions. - While checking-out your new home pre-inspection, write down anything you want brought to the attention of your inspector. Look for signs of water damage, discolouration around outlets, or anything out of the ordinary.
