If you are thinking of buying a house you’ve probably called in the building surveyor to give the house a quick once over to make sure that everything is structurally sound; but what about the electrics? It might not be the first think you consider, but having an electrical inspection can highlight any major electrical faults – which if let could present health and safety hazards as well as a hefty bill at the end of it. At First Strike Electrical we perform electrical inspections which are great for anyone looking to buy a house; so what are the main advantages to this service?
1.) Identify Any Serious Problems
By having an electrical inspection you will identify any serious electrical problems. If electrical problems are found you can choose to liaise with the current owner to reduce the price of the house in respect to the cost of the work which will need to be undertaken or you can back out and opt for a house which is safe and secure without any major work.
2.) Avoids Any Costly Repair Work
The main advantage to this service is that it outlines any potential repair work and therefore you can get an indication of any repair work which may be needed. This gives you a bit of a bargaining chip, in that you can liaise with the buyer to reduce the cost of the house to reflect the cost of the repair work you will need to undertake. It also allows you to budget your finances and be more prepared.
3.) Peace of Mind
Aside from helping you to identify any potential problems with the electrical wiring it also gives you peace of mind. By choosing to have a house inspection you can buy a house, safe in the knowledge that there are no electrical faults waiting to be found.
