Buying a Flip or Renovated Home?

Flippers are notorious for not pulling permits and having code inspections by local code enforcement officials. Why? It adds to the cost of the flip, requires current codes to be met, and slows down their schedule. It’s simply not in their best interest or yours.

Did your Home Inspector recommend checking a permit history on the home you intend to purchase?

Home Inspectors do not inspect to code, however, they have a pretty keen eye and are great at spotting work that appears to have been DIY or handyman related work that is not consistent with work completed by a licensed professional. If your home inspector recommended checking a building permit history, there’s likely a great deal of value in doing so. From having the Seller make repairs to ensuring your families safety – a building permit history is an inexpensive way to document or confirm improper work.
