Post Purchase Inspection – It’s Not Too Late

Have a Third Option

Your long search is over, and you have made an offer on your dream home, only to find out that you have competition; there are multiple offers. What’s worse is that the seller will accept the first offer that does not require an inspection. What should you do?

In a hot sellers market such as we are currently in, this situation is not uncommon. You have two choices, either insist on an inspection (the wise choice under normal circumstances) and possibly lose out on your potential dream home, or take a chance and buy the house without an inspection.

In this article we are offering you a third choice, the Post Purchase Inspection.


Post Sale is Not Too Late

With that in mind, if you decide to go ahead and make the purchase, it is not too late. You can still get an inspection after your purchase and preferably before you move in.

Buying a house without an inspection means that you waive certain legal rights and would have absolutely no protection should you pursue the former owner in court should major problems arise later. It also means that you have no idea what repair and maintenance costs you will be facing once you move in, despite what you were told about the property’s condition by the seller or the agents involved.

To have legal rights when you purchase a property you must have a certified home inspection. The next best thing is a post=purchase inspection from Mose Home Inspection Services.
Be aware of your legal rights when purchasing your home without an inspection.

With that in mind, if you decide to go ahead and make the purchase, it is not too late. You can still get an inspection after your purchase and preferably before you move in.

Know What You Are Buying

A Post-Purchase inspection does not offer the protection that a Pre-Purchase inspection does, but it does identify what repairs are needed and the priorities of making those repairs. Especially in light of any other renovations, you may want to make to the home. Over time minor defects will become significant defects if not attended promptly and correctly.

Typical repair costs average 1% per year of the home’s purchase price and as high as 3% in the first year of ownership. With older homes, the costs can increase to 2 to 3% per year.

Don't get caught with unexpected repair bills when you buy your new home. Contact Mose Home Inspection Services to book your home inspection today.
Don’t get stuck with unexpected expenses.

The Post-Purchase inspection is just as thorough and informative to the new owner as a Pre-Purchase inspection.

5 Disadvantages of Not Getting a Pre-Purchase Inspection

A Pre-Purchase inspection from Mose Home Inspection Services can address all but one of the following disadvantages.

At Mose Home Inspection Services we believe that there are many advantages to having a pre-listing inspection done. This short list will outline 5 of them.

  1. No protection in a court of law if a significant problem should arise
    (this is the one we can’t address)
  2. You have no idea what repairs will be needed and the costs involved over the next few years.
  3. As time goes by, minor repairs become costly extensive repairs.
  4. The house may be a “flip” (An older run-down house bought, updated and resold by a contractor or by somebody aspiring to be a contractor).  Sometimes not everything is brought up to the current building codes, i.e. ungrounded wiring.
  5. The peace of mind provided by a MOSE Pre-Purchase inspection is missing.

Amazing experience with Carol Mose who helped me with a pre-purchase inspection! She was very approachable and... observant, and informed me of all her first impressions on-site. This gave me greater understanding of any conditions as I was able to ask any quick questions on the spot. Her reports are the most thorough that I've seen and include diagrams to help explain what any physical signs mean and potential consequences. Could not have asked for a better inspector!read more

Carol was wonderful to work with for our pre-purchase inspection. She was professional, thorough and communicative,... taking the time to explain her findings as we went through the house. After the inspection, we felt we had clear knowledge of the condition of the house (both pros and cons), allowing us to move forward with the purchase with confidence. Highly recommend!read more

I had a great experience with Mose home inspection. My husband and I are first time homebuyers and so had a ton of... questions about the process. Everyone we talked with was really informative and helpful. Michael was our inspector and was phenomenal. The inspection was very thorough and he explained everything in detail with realistic next steps for us to take. We came out of the inspection feeling really informed. Plus, he is just an absolute delight! He had very contagious enthusiasm and made the inspection a really positive experience. Would highly recommend!read more

Michael was amazing. He took the time to explain to us what’s really important and the reasoning behind it. We’re not... very handy nor savvy when it comes to home construction so we really appreciate him taking the time to explain to us all aspects of the inspection. Also, Michael was friendly, professional and timely; he provided the report over a holiday and a weekend.read more
