HouseCheck Home Inspection Services

Buying a house? Don’t make an expensive mistake

Buying a house is a huge financial investment and can be very risky – especially if you are being asked to sign a voetstoots clause.  Make sure you don’t risk your hard-earned money. You should always make your Offer to Purchase conditional on a satisfactory home inspection report.

“Some while ago you checked out a house I was considering buying. I received your report a day or two after calling you and, talk about impressed, the report was thorough, and easily understandable, having defects illustrated with photographs. Prevention is usually cheaper than cure and you saved me from buying a house that would have cost about 20% above its asking price to rectify serious problems and probably the same again in legal fees had I tried to get compensation from the seller. It’s a MUST for anyone considering house purchase to call HouseCheck. It won’t cost a bean because they will get back in reduced purchase price much more than they pay you, and they can buy without anxiety.”
