Columbia County Home Inspectors

Selecting from the many Columbia County Home Inspectors is a critical decision. To help you we describe some of the context of home inspections and some hints to effective home inspection.

Purchase and sales contracts for real estate generally permit the purchaser to hire a home inspectors to determine if problems exist that may detract from the value of the house. In the Albany Capital District a standard form contract is in use which stipulates that if a reputable inspector finds structural damage to the house exceeding $1500 the purchaser may withdraw from the contract and have the deposit returned. More often negotiations resolve differences of opinion regarding the costs of damages

Contracts typically specify a date by which the purchaser must provide to the seller notice of any problems. If this date passes without any communication, the Purchaser usually waives his right to object to problems with the house and is obligated to go to closing.

Columbia County home inspectors typically will check, in addition to structural matters, to make sure the water is potable, the septic or sewer is in working condition. Also that there is no pest infestation or radon problem (a gas coming from the ground) is below levels recommended by the Environmental Protection Administration.

Selecting an inspector for Columbia County home inspections is a critical decision and should be done with care. Since 2006, home inspectors have been licensed in New York State and are subject to certain requirements. Inspectors run the gamut in their skills and fees. Try to get recommendations from individuals you trust. And be sure to talk with an individual before hiring him or her. If you are contacting an unknown individual be sure to find out qualifications and experience. Ask to speak with recent individuals for whom he or she has conducted inspections.

To view the requirements under New York State law that pertain to home inspectors go to the website for the  New York State Association of Home Inspectors.  For more general  information about home inspectors visit the website of the American Society of Home Inspectors.
