Point Of Sale Required? Need Code Volations Corrected?
Do you need a Point of Sale Inspection in your community? Already have the report and are spending frustrating hours trying to find contractors only to not have them show up at the appointed time?
This can be a very stressful time for sellers, Guardian Angels will come to the rescue to relieve the problem. Call your local building department to determine if you will be required to schedule a Point of Sale Inspection, or contact us to find out.
If it is required you will be able to make that appointment while you are on the phone. The result of the inspection will be a report of Code Violations that will need to be repaired prior to property transfer to avoid money being Escrowed for the buyer. Guardian Angels is familiar with these reports, capable of being present when the inspection is taking place.
Guardian Angels can offer a complete explanation accompanied by an estimate of costs. Having an informal inspection prior to the City Inspection is also a good idea. Sellers having made an effort to correct problems before the inspection often find the report less overwhelming; the Inspector a little more lenient. It is a good idea to repair all those little annoying things first, then the Inspector will explain to you what the big things are and the list will not be catastrophic.
