A warranty inspection is performed for people whose homes are approaching their one year anniversary. A warranty inspection is similar to the buyer’s inspection – all of the major systems are inspected and an infrared scan is performed on the entire house.
The warranty inspection also includes the foundation level measurement.
The primary difference between a warranty inspection and a buyer’s inspection is that the appliances and sprinkler system are not routinely checked in a warranty inspection.
Chances are that if you’ve lived in the house for nearly a year, you don’t need anyone to tell you that the microwave doesn’t work. The focus is on the items that you, as the homeowner, might not see.
