A building inspection is an inspection of an existing home to assess its structural condition. To get the fairest possible picture of this condition, the inspection is always done by an independent party. From the inspection comes a report with the cost of possible improvements to the home. In this, we distinguish between short-term and long-term maintenance. Since we, as your real estate agent, will relieve you from a to z when (re)buying your house, we will also provide a good construction expert if required.
As a real estate agent, we will fully guide you through this process. We also have several structural engineers with whom we have had good experiences. Sometimes it happens that we want to book a building inspection within 24 hours. Because we have good contacts, you have a better chance of getting in.
We will agree on a time and date. It is nice if both parties are there, to see on the spot what comes out of the inspection.
If there are certain areas of concern, we talk them through beforehand.
The structural engineer inspects the condition of the home. With an apartment, this will basically only involve the apartment itself and the common areas that can be accessed.
It is good to keep in mind that this is a snapshot in time. Also, no specialized or destructive examinations are performed during a building inspection. That amounts to not making measurements or calculations. Nor does one remove parts to assess underlying structures or components.
Immediately after the inspection, the structural engineer gives a brief explanation of his findings and the defects found.
After the building inspection, the structural engineer prepares a report that includes all the insights, the defects found and the costs for repair and maintenance.
