Pre-Delivery Inspections often referred to as a PDI, are inspections that would be performed on a newly built Home or Condo. These inspections are meant for the buyers to have the first look at their new home and identify and cosmetic or material issues. Please remember that this is NOT a warranty inspection and therefore anything that is listed in the PDI form is not required to be fixed by the builder. The PDI usually has a maximum amount of time that can be spent at the property, since the house is still in the name of the builder you can be told to leave once your time is up. This is why we typically recommend against hiring an inspector for a pre-delivery inspection as there is a large time constraint hindering the process.
If you have a PDI scheduled we advise you to go alone and bring a roll of painters tape to mark any defects accordingly. The sole purpose of the inspection is to document cosmetic defects and make sure the house is in livable condition prior to you (the buyer) taking possession. After taking possession we highly recommend hiring us to perform your 30 day warranty inspection. Further information regarding such inspection can be found here: New Home Inspections
