VA Home Inspector | While the basic role of any VA home inspector is the same, they’re not all the same in terms of their approach to a structural inspection or condition assessment of an existing home, one you’re considering purchasing or selling, or for a 203k consultation. Before any VA home inspections even get started, there are some questions you’ll definitely want answered.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
Not all VA home inspectors are protected by workers’ compensation coverage and other protection. It could become an issue if the VA home inspector is injured and decides to sue.
Do You Have References?
It never hurts to see what other clients are saying about your prospective VA home inspector, even if the references provided are handpicked. Another option is to ask to speak with previous clients or browse through any posted reviews online.
Can I Walk Along with You During the VA Home Inspection?
Walking along with the VA home inspector a good way to see what they are seeing so you’ll know what’s being referred to in their report. Being present also gives you a chance to see where turn-off valves and other need-to-know features are located.
What Is Included During and After the VA Home Inspection?
Each VA Home inspector has their own definition of what constitutes a thorough structural inspection or condition assessment of a property. For instance, some VA Home inspectors won’t turn on appliances. Also ask what you’ll get in the report you’ll receive after the VA Home inspection and whether or not digital pictures will be included.
Once you’ve selected your VA Home inspector, the next step is to ask follow-up questions after the thorough structural inspection or condition assessment and ask them to point out anything that needs immediate attention. When you get the VA Home inspector’s report, you should have a clear idea of what does and doesn’t need repaired, how much time and money you’ll likely need to invest in the property, and how to prioritize any work that may need done.
