Pre-delivery Home Inspection

At Denton County Home Inspection, we specialize in a variety of home inspection services. Our company has over 25 years of experience in the building industry, both residential and commercial. One area of service we provide is pre-delivery home inspection. Our pre-delivery home inspection in Denton services are provided for home owners who have decided to go with a new construction build for their new home rather than an existing property. Newly built homes require special inspections to ensure the home is ready to be occupied.

What is a Pre-Delivery Home Inspection?

This type of home inspection involves a newly built home. The home owner has the choice to schedule such an inspection of the new build or the contract may require that the home be inspected before closing takes places. The inspection will typically be completed about a week prior to closing and will allow the buyer the first chance to inspect their new property. The pre-delivery home inspection in Denton will be done to check that all terms of the contract for the home have been met. The home must be checked for completion as well as ensure major items are working properly.

During the home inspection, a representative of the builder will be on-site as well as the buyers. Any defects found will be noted and added to a list that must be completed before closing can take place. Many times, a second inspection will be conducted after any defects have been found to ensure these items have been corrected. The home must be in proper working order so home owners can move in to the new build without needing to make substantial repairs.
