A technical inspection report in English
For expats, we can organize a technical inspection report for buying a house in the Netherlands. Also called a home inspection or technical survey. This report is written in English. Buying a house in Amsterdam, Rotterdam or The Hague? Our inspection company works nationwide and in some parts of Belgium.
Why should I want a building inspection report?
Basically, because you’re taking a massive risk if you don’t. An inspection may reveal hidden structural problems that you might not see with the untrained eye.
If you don’t organize a pre-purchase inspection, and you find out later that your property is having a lot of problems, you’ll be responsible for fixing those faults. That can result in a significant gap in your saving account.
This technical inspection provides you with information regarding the technical condition of the house and its structures. This assessment will also prevent you from shortcomings and defects.
To give you the service you really need when buying a house, our inspection company has developed an English technical inspection report. In most cases, they can also provide an inspector with good knowledge of the English language, so that you can easily communicate and ask questions during the inspection of your new property.
We also have people at our office who speak English very well, so feel free to call us when you have any questions according to structural problems with any kind of property.
Our clients are encouraged to join the inspector during the inspection. It enables you to ask questions about the property and try to discover whether a crack in the wall is nostalgia or a serious structural defect.
