Multi-Family Dwellings are quickly becoming a popular way for home buyers to invest in real estate while simultaneously supplementing their own income. Often times, we meet clients who are planning to live in one unit, and pay their mortgage payments using the rent collected from their tenants. In situations like these, having a home inspection performed is absolutely essential. Not only do you want to know that the place you’re going to live is safe and sound, but you also want to be sure that your renters will be well taken care of, and won’t come to you with many problems and complaints. Having a property inspection done for your multi-unit property will help to assure you that no hidden repairs and major after-closing costs lie ahead.
The time it takes to complete an inspection of a multi-family dwelling varies greatly based on the number of units, size, age and complexity of the property. Please call us to discuss the details and we will be happy to give you a more concrete time frame for the inspection. Our inspection includes a detailed evaluation of the roof/attic, crawlspace, and foundation (structural components) as well as the plumbing, electrical and heating/cooling systems (mechanical) for each individual unit.
