Limitations of a Home Inspection in Miami & Fort Lauderdale
Although home inspections are an essential part of a real estate transaction, they do not guarantee the property against future failures. For such a guarantee, you'd need a home warranty. Below are some of the key limitations of a home inspection to keep in mind when you request one from Same Day Inspection:
- A home inspection is not protection against future failures. Components like air conditioners and heating systems can and will break down. A home inspection attempts to reveal the condition of the component at the time the component was inspected. For protection from future failures, you need to purchase a home warranty.
- A home inspection is not an appraisal that determines the value of a home. Nor will a home inspector tell you if you should buy this home or what to pay for this home. A home inspection is not a code inspection, which verifies local building code compliance. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house based on local codes.
- Homes built before code revisions are not obligated to comply with the code for homes built today. Home inspectors will report findings when it comes to safety concerns that may be in the current code. A home inspector thinks "Safety" not "Code" when performing a home inspection.
