You should always get a home inspection and with new construction I advise getting two inspections if possible, one before the sheetrock goes up and the second when the home is complete. The final inspection is the only time it is appropriate to literally hand over the inspection and tell the builder to fix anything the inspector found.
The municipal building inspections are not looking at the quality of the work only checking for code violations which isn't the same thing. That is where your inspector comes in.
A Resale inspection can be done for the seller or the buyer. Selling a home is a stressful time and knowing the condition of your home prior to the buyers inspection will help ease the stress and can make the transaction smoother. Purchasing a house is a large financial endeavor and an investment in your family’s future. A house is more than a place to live or a means of shelter. For most individuals, it is the cornerstone of their life. It’s where the family gathers to celebrate, where the children play and grow and where you feel safe and secure. The house is the place where memories are made.
Buying a newly constructed home can be an exciting time. As your new home ages it is important to have it inspected as it approaches the 11 month age. This is the time to have the builder come back and make any repairs that are covered under the warranty or to have any defects repaired. New houses can go through different stages of settling or climatizing. Having your home inspected at the 11 month age will provide you with a professional report that you can use to guide you and the builder to making the needed repairs..
