Why sellers declaration means nothing

Why sellers declaration means nothing

Do you know anyone who has recently moved into their new home and discovered that there were some major problems that made them unhappy.?

Imagine moving into your new home and discovering that the roof has coastal rot in it, or that your geyser has reached the end of its useful life. Problems like these occur everyday in South Africa. And yet if caught in time the roof may be saved, but for the unfortunate person who doesn’t know, the rot can progress to the degree where most of the roof timbers become irreparable.

Estate Agents will tell you that sellers have filled in a  declaration form advising that their are no faults. The reality is that most often, sellers declarations are not worth the paper they are written on. In our examples above, the seller would most likely be completely unaware of these non visible problems, but a HouseCheck home inspector would pick it up right away.

HouseCheck has the solution to protect buyers from unforeseen problems. A HouseCheck home inspection empowers buyers to know the actual condition of their potential home. And inspections are affordable – certainly in comparison to very expensive legal action.

Just complete the  form below and we will email you a “no-obligations” quote for a house inspection report within the hour. For quoting purposes please count and indicate on the form the number of rooms (this includes bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, kitchen, garage and outbuildings. Exclude very small rooms like a guest toilet, passage or a scullery).
