What is Condo Inspection?

A Condo inspection is a crucial step in the buying or selling process of a condominium unit. It involves a thorough examination of the unit’s condition by a licensed home inspector, who will identify any potential issues or defects. The inspection includes review of the unit’s structure, electrical and plumbing systems, appliances, and common areas of the building. The inspection report provides buyers with valuable information about the unit’s condition, and recommendations for repairs or further action.
