A Property or Home Inspection Report avoids risking the sale due to undisclosed defects being discovered after the Deed of Sale is signed and accepted.
With the implementation of the Consumer Protection Act in South Africa in April 2011, reliance on a “voetstoots” or “as is” clause in a Deed of Sale will only, under exceptional circumstances provide protection to the Seller from being held liable for undisclosed defects.
For the Selling Agent it is even more critical because now the Selling Agent can also be held equally liable for undisclosed defects.
Inevitable a Property or Home Inspection Report will become a standard requirement of a Buyer in an Offer to Purchase. The “voetstoets” or “as is” clause will more than likely be deleted as it can now easily be contested in court.
Why not get in front of the curve and have a complete home inspection performed by a neutral qualified property inspector before putting the property on the market. A Home Inspection Report lets everyone know if there are any issues regarding the property. It will also reassure the buyer that the seller is not hiding any known defects and will definitely benefit the Seller if there are any disputes after a property is sold.
A Home Inspection Report will moreover assist the Selling Agent to market and sell the property.
