A home warranty inspection helps you identify and document defects in your home before the builder’s home warranty expires. Even if an elite builder built your home, and you had the pre-drywall and final walk-through inspections, the home may have undergone stresses, seasonal changes, and likely some level of settlement that could reveal additional defects.
When to Schedule the Home Warranty Inspection
The Home Warranty inspection should be scheduled at the beginning of the 10th month. This will ensure you have time to coordinate and discuss the inspection results with your builder.
Who should Attend
It is recommended that you and your agent attend the inspection. This will allow the inspector to address any questions or explain issues that the inspection uncovers.
What to Expect
Within 24-48 hours of the Home Warranty inspection being completed, you will be furnished with a report describing what was inspected and the recommended items that may require builder attention and/or follow-up prior to the expiration of the builder’s home warranty.
