Home Inspection

What to Check for After Completion

Once you have closed the funding on your new home, it's time for final inspection. This is your opportunity to make sure that everything has been done right. Get organized and use a checklist so you cover everything.

You're going to want to check:

  • Doors and windows
  • Electrical outlets
  • Kitchen and bathroom fixtures
  • Lights and switches
  • Smoke alarms
  • Appliances
  • Trim and moldings
  • Cabinets and hardware
  • Carpeting

Who Should Conduct a Final Inspection

While you're conducting your own detailed inspection, your home dealer or installer should, too. Many states will also require a final inspection. You benefit from these inspections - they ensure all local codes are met, which can prevent expensive problems down the road.
