                          Pre posession check list provided with report.

    • Allspec includes a pre possession checklist in the client’s Home Inspection report. We strongly advise all buyers take time to conduct this easy to follow check list during the final walkthrough prior to purchase to avoid any disappointment due to defects which may have been  concealed during the initial home inspection because of occupant storage or snow cover. Run all appliances, AC, Heating systems and appliances. Flush all toilets run sinks etc to check drains and water pressure. Things can and do break down in the interim between purchase and closing. Taking time to do a thorough walk through inspection is an important part of the purchasing process. Imagine buying lets say a car and not closing for two months. Wouldn't you want to take it for a spin before you close to check its condition and be sure it still runs nice ? Sure you would so dont skimp on your walk through inspection of your new home.
