Handling a New Home Problem on Moving Day

Handling a New Home Problem on Moving Day

 

Imagine buying a product from a store, taking it home, and then discovering there’s a problem with it. Disappointing, yes, but not a catastrophe. You can simply take it back for repair or exchange, right? 


But, what if it’s moving day, and you discover there’s a problem with your new home? Whoa. A house isn’t so easily returned!


What are the most common problems encountered on moving day?


• A delay in getting the keys.


• The seller not having completely moved out.


• An item expected to be included with the property is missing. (For example, the window blinds.)


• Something needs repair that was not disclosed by the seller, nor did it come up during inspection. (For example, the dishwasher not working.)


• Damage to the property caused by the seller. (For example, a heavy item dropped during the move and cracking a floor tile.)


Fortunately, these are rare events. In most cases, you can expect no serious issues when you move into your new home.


But, if something is wrong, you have options. So, call me immediately. In all likelihood, I will be able to quickly resolve the issue.


If it’s a serious matter, such as missing items, I may get your real estate lawyer involved to arrange for the return of the item(s) or compensation.


So don’t worry. Let me handle it for you. And you can just enjoy your new home!

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
