Frequently Asked questions
We recommend that buyers make their offer to purchase (OTP) subject to a satisfactory HouseCheck.
No house is perfect and your HouseCheck report will separate Vital defects which need immediate attention and maintenance issues which you can handle over time. We include cost estimates for both. This is your negotiating tool.
HouseCheck finds a variety of situations. Whilst most of our clients are buyers, we also have sellers paying for inspections and occasionally estate agents as well. Until 2020 buyers were prejudiced by the voetstoots clause and therefore it was and is still in their interests to get a HouseCheck.
Sellers and Agents are at risk under the Property Practitioners Act of 2019 and the associated regulations. Therefore more and more agents and sellers are initiating inspections.
No, but now that you know what the defects will cost to repair, you can check if the property is priced at a reasonable level.
A seller may also offer to correct the defects prior to the sale. Your agent may advise that despite the defects you still have a good buy given that the comparative market analysis indicates that the property could sell for more. Some sellers price for a quick sale.
