The best time to protect your financial future is before the divorce. In a divorce, emotions can cloud your better judgment. An appraisal to determine home value is a good first step, but it is not enough. You need to determine the true value of the home. Major repairs can negatively impact the value of the home and should be considered by both parties before distribution of assets.
If you are considering purchasing the marital home, a pre-divorce settlement is the best and relatively inexpensive way to protect yourself and your investment. You wouldn't purchase a home without an inspection. Do you really want to accept the house in a divorce settlement without an inspection?
At the Building Inspector of America, we provide what you need – a thorough, detailed and objective analysis of the home's current condition. Our pre-divorce home inspection will assess the condition of the house and identify major items needing improvement or repair, or are at or near the end of their useful life. This information will help to determine the true value of the home and will allow for fair distribution of assets.
Once the last detail has been checked, a comprehensive digital report with photographs is provided within 24 hours which documents any defects or deficiencies that may have been found during the inspection. Our inspectors are well-informed, polite and helpful; they will answer your questions and assist you in understanding the findings. Should any questions or concerns arise about the report or the home following the inspection, telephone consultation with the inspector is available at no extra charge to the client.
