Membership Number -
Lenn Victor, Owner and Managing Director of Home Design Emporium (Pty) Ltd, has recently formed HDE Consultancy (Pty) Ltd, t/a Home Inspection West Rand, and is owner and Managing Director of this Company as well. The second Company was formed and is being run as an unbiased, independent Organization from Home Design Emporium. Although both Companies are similar in nature, as they are directly involved in property, their functions and duties towards the consumer, is completely different. Home Inspection West Rand will be covering both Roodepoort and Krugersdorp Municipal Districts.
Being a "Member In Good Standing of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors", Membership Number NACHI 20110224, allows Lenn and his new Company to assist and guide Property Owners or prospective Property Owners, in the quality of property they are intending to invest in, or are in possession of, via a detailed Property Inspection written report.
Property Owners, who wish to have their existing property inspected for potential defects or problems, or wish to sell their property, or wish to rent out their property can now receive a thorough inspection, with a detailed written report, accompanied by supporting photos. This inspection exposes any defects detected during the inspection, and allows the existing Property Owner to remedy such defects, or negotiate with the other party over these defects.
Potential Property Owners or Tenants, who wish to have a property inspected for potential defects or problems, before renting such property, or wishing to purchase a property, can now receive a thorough inspection, with a detailed written report, accompanied by supporting photos, prior to concluding of the transaction. These exposed potential defects detected during the inspection, allows the tenant or potential buyer from discussing these potential defects with the existing Property Owner, and how resolving or remedy of such defects will occur.
BENEFITS OF A PROPERTY INSPECTION
Having a property inspection done by a Certified Property Inspector, holds many benefits for both the Seller, Buyer or Tenant. On too many occassions in the past, these aforementioned transactions have been accompanied by ill feelings, dispise and even litigations that are unpleasant, once the Tenant or New Owner has occupied the property, and the defects come to the fore.
By having a Detailed Property Inspection done, which is supported by a detailed written report accompanied with photos, these scenarios can be avoided, due to the fact that all Parties are informed in writing of what potential defects are present at the time of the final agreement, and how these potential defects will be resolved or accommodated in the new agreement.
Money spent on having an Inspection done prior to conclusion of the transaction, is not always budgeted for. But the cost saving at the end of the day is exponential in comparison, to appointing Legal Professionals, Court Costs, repair costs, discomfort, inconvenience and many more factors that are experienced afterwards. Spend small money now, to save large monies later.
The biggest benefit of a Property Inspection, is peace of mind on all parties sides. Knowing that you are entering into an agreement with another person, and there are no 'hidden' secrets, just makes for easy conclusion of the transaction.
