You Can’t Do It Alone

It doesn’t matter if you think of yourself as a DIY expert, nothing replaces the knowledge and experience of a professional property inspector. When you are choosing a property inspector, ask the following:

  • Will they inspect and report on your roof?
  • Will they climb under the property to inspect the foundations?
  • What are their qualifications?
  • What is their experience?
  • How long will the inspection take?
  • How long until you receive your report?
  • What is the total cost?

These questions will help you to find a property inspector who you feel comfortable with.


Just because you have hired a professional doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t also attend. While your hires inspector is performing their job, you can do the following:

  • Plug a small cell charger into each of the sockets to check for any electrical wiring issues
  • Run your hands along the walls to find any damp spots where water damage has occurred
  • Run each of the faucets
  • Flush each of the toilets
  • Ensure any of the listed inclusions are still there and working correctly

These aspects aren’t always going to be covered by your property inspector, so be sure to complete them yourself. If you find something that raises concern, have your property inspector take a look while you are both there.
