Why you should have your home Move-In Certified!

Wise sellers have their property Move-in Certified!

You will probably be selling your house with the “Voetstoots Clause” in the Offer to Purchase. But, if you think you are fully protected against any comebacks for defects you are wrong!

If you paint over stains on your ceilings to hide roof leaks, patch and paint over cracks or rising damp damage on walls without disclosing them you might land up in court!

Under the law, you have to disclose the defects on the property that you are aware of. Your estate agent may also point out defects that need to be corrected.

If you don’t disclose those defects you may be liable to pay for the correction of the defects after the property has been sold.

As a home seller, you should have your home “Move-in Certified”! Move-in certified homes sell better, faster and for higher prices!

Besides being a great marketing tool, the seller’s home inspection report is also the “Seller’s Disclosure”. This safeguards you against any later legal action that the buyer may want to bring against you for both latent and patent defects!

Do the wise thing, have your home inspected before you sell it!
