11 Month Warranty & New Construction Inspection
It’s just as important to get an inspection of a brand new home as it is with a pre-owned home.
While most people expect everything to be installed and functioning properly come move-in day, it’s not always the case. Builders could have overlooked components, such as shingles and attic insulation.
A certified home inspector will note defects or issues. This gives you the opportunity to have the builder make repairs before closing.
By law, builders must warrant all new construction homes for one year. However, they legally only have to cover major structural defects.
If you bought a newly constructed home it was not inspected before the purchase you can still have an 11-month warranty inspection completed. Home inspectors perform this during the 11th month of home ownership, just before the 1-year warranty expires.
