The pre-handover and resale inspections are the most prominent among the various home inspections. A pre-handover assessment is where a newly constructed property is checked and is usually conducted before the buyer takes over the property. On the other hand, a resale property inspection is performed for an already-aged property that the property owners put out for sale.
GTA Inspectors having its presence in the US and UAE has witnessed quite a pattern in business. In the US, significant inspection business comes from Resale property rather than the pre-handover property inspection. On the contrary, if we talk about UAE, the maximum number of people go in for a pre-handover check rather than a resale one. Pre-handover inspection is prominent here in Dubai because a newly constructed property in Dubai generally has multiple faults and flaws. The primary focus area of GTA Inspectors in a pre-handover inspection is MEP, i.e., Mechanical, Electrical, and plumbing.
The mechanical check includes the check on the ducting system to check for air leaks, condensation, and efficiency of the air system. The electrical inspection involves the assessment of the wiring system of the house. And plumbing is a check on bathrooms, pipelines, and drainage. Apart from MEP, another essential dimension of new construction is to check on the property's structural integrity, which is a lengthy process as it involves exposing the foundation, digging around the parameters of the home, and checking for flaws using multiple tools.
In addition to MEP, a new construction generally involves a check on the cosmetics, which is not in the case of a resale property. In a resale property, wear and tear is allowed to a certain extent. So, these were some of the critical aspects of an inspection GTA home inspectors Dubai focus on with pre-handover and a resale property inspection requirement.
