What is the Importance of a Final Walk-Through?
Why is that final walkthrough so important? Let’s talk about that final walkthrough. Many people are unaware that when you close on a house typically, the sellers are no longer responsible for anything that may go wrong. Meaning, it’s very important that you book your final walkthrough as close to your closing date as possible.
During the walkthrough, you’ll ensure that the furnace, plumbing, windows, doors, garage door opener, lighting, and all appliances are in the same or better working order than when you did your home inspection, or first viewed the property.
This will give you the opportunity to have the sellers rectify any shortfalls in performance, or allow for a financial rebate to allow you to replace or correct the problem yourself.
