After a home inspection, the seller of the property you are buying may have had repairs made based on the deficiencies that were noted in the inspection report. It’s not unusual for clients to inquire about having a follow up inspection done. This type of appointment can be performed for an additional fee and it is what we call a repair check. A repair check is done to check the repairs that were made to address deficiencies noted in the inspection report.
It is important to note that if a deficiency was addressed by a licensed specialist, such as a plumber or electrician, their license supersedes our inspectors’ license in that area. The invoice for the invoice for the work should be sufficient documentation that the work was done. However, we understand that clients are sometimes interested in getting another opinion for their peace of mind.
Repair check appointments require a Repair Request List to be created using our Report Tools. This allows us to create the repair check report template with the exact items that are to be checked by the inspector. The cost of the repair check can vary based on the number of systems that the inspector will be checking during the appointment. The Repair Request List is the best way for us to ensure the accuracy of the cost and the report.
