While most homeowners recognize the importance of obtaining proper permits when having work performed, many first-time buyers may not fully appreciate the importance of verifying the quality of construction and proof that all permits and inspections were properly performed. For example, faulty installation of plumbing, electric or other systems can result in damage to the home which may void the warranty related to the device, prevent the future sale of the home and even restrict the amount of insurance coverage should a claim arise.
Whether you are buying a brand new home or existing home, take the time to protect yourself.
