Houston - House inspection

It is imperative to have any property you are considering to purchase professionally inspected.
This applies whether the house is new or old.
It is possible that your lender (if you have considered one at this stage of the process) insists on your having an inspection anyway.
An inspection will give the buyer the opportunity to determine that the house is structurally sound and that the mechanical systems are in working order as well as any termite or pest problems that could cause structural problems at a later stage.
The inspection costs between $100 and $300 depending on square footage and inclusions.
The buyer is responsible for the cost of the inspection, but the seller is generally responsible for any repair bills highlighted in the inspection, of which the total amount should not exceed the amount of money specified in the earnest money contract.
In the case of new homes, the homeowner should insist on a walk-through prior to closing the contract, as to specify any obvious problems that need attention to the builder.
Most new homes have a built in insurance of adequate homeowner warranty to ensure that any problems occurring in the first year are taken care of.

When buying a previously owned home, the buyer may wish to purchase a homeowner warranty.
This covers any repair to the structure, mechanical systems and major appliances in the house for a specified time.
The warranty may be offered by the seller with the sale or may be purchased separately for approximately $300 (see also the section: House Insurance, Home buyer’s warranty protection).
