Should I Get an Inspection for a Condo?
If you are considering purchasing a unit in a condominium, you may be wondering if getting it inspected is necessary. Some buyers are confused about what type of home inspection is needed for a condo. The short of it is, yes, you will want to pay to have your condo inspected. The potential cost of having to replace faulty plumbing or electrical systems is potentially far more expensive. Tribute Home Inspections LLC offers competitive pricing for thorough condo inspection services.
Why Get Exterior Condo Inspections?
When you purchase a condo, you will be buying into an HOA (Homeowners Association). The HOA collects a monthly fee to maintain the exterior aspects of the building, such as roofing, siding, and gutters.
Why is having the exterior of a condo important, given it's covered by the HOA? Because knowing the overall condition of the building and the reserves within your HOA funds will give you a better sense of the health of the building and the likelihood that you'll be hit with "special assessments" to handle large repairs within a certain period of time.
Tribute Home Inspections LLC can help you understand your resale certificate, which you will be able to review prior to purchasing the condo. This certificate allows you to assess the reserve study, in which the HOA has itemized expenses for upcoming projects. You'll want to see that the HOA is well-funded and has reserves necessary for required maintenance.
