A town house is a home just like any other. As such, buyers will need to have a town house inspection performed before they invest in the property. A town house inspection is much the same as any home inspection, and must be conducted by a highly trained and skilled professional.

Unfortunately, some town house buyers do nothing but a simple walk-through before they agree to purchase a property. This is inadvisable. Town houses can have faults that are not readily visible or easily recognizable. Only a trained professional has the knowledge and skills required to perform a thorough inspection. The average person does not have adequate knowledge of home construction, electrical systems, plumbing, and indoor environmental quality.

Town House Inspections

Certified home inspectors are trained to know everything about a town house. Knowing every component that goes into building a town house is the only way to know what can possibly go wrong. It is difficult to spot some major defects and only with the right tools and education can many household problems be identified. Often, the naked eye is not adequate to detect specific types of defects.

Following a town house inspection, a written report will be furnished so that buyers can have all the necessary information to make an informed buying decision. Reports can be accessed online in many cases for greater convenience. Town house owners should also have an inspection performed before undertaking any major remodeling projects.
