Our home inspection service is a key part of a New York City home buyer’s due diligence.

Much of the housing stock in New York is more than a century old with varying use and redevelopment histories. Many of these older buildings have experienced significant structural and mechanical failures as well as many non-conforming and ill-conceived alterations. A home inspection is critical for a buyer to be fully informed about all deficiencies and concerns with a prospective property.

In New York it is common practice for sellers to refuse to provide a home inspection contingency in the contract. This means that once you obtain an accepted offer there is a limited time window to obtain an accurate and comprehensive home inspection report before entering into contract and putting up earnest money. With our service we provide you with an expedited and thorough home inspection. We can usually meet you or your agent at the property within 24 hours of your first call. The completed report will be delivered to you via email PDF within 24 hours of the inspection.

We utilize the most current technology. This includes FLIR infrared analysis, carbon monoxide and combustion gas detection, tablet software for onsite photo and data input, and sample testing for lead, mold, radon and asbestos.

Benefit from our experience and expertise. Our lead home inspector, Derek Lomer, has more than thirty years of experience in home inspections, home construction, renovation, and contracting.
