Uncover the Hidden with CJ Property Inspections: Essential for Today’s Property Practitioners

In light of the newly implemented Property Practitioner Act regulations, which came into effect on February 1, 2021, the real estate landscape has witnessed some significant changes. One such change is the transformation of the title “estate agent” to “property practitioner.” However, the most pivotal change introduced by this Act is the enhanced protection it offers to consumers.

Now, it is legally mandatory for sellers to disclose defects in properties, whether for sale or rent. This requirement, although practised previously, is now enshrined in law. With the document detailing defects signed by all parties and attached to the respective sale or lease agreement. Undisclosed defects could potentially expose sellers to legal action from purchasers, emphasizing the importance of transparency during the sales process.

But what if sellers themselves are not aware of certain defects? This is where the expertise of a reliable property inspection service comes in. And this is where CJ Property Inspections excel. We strongly recommend that prospective buyers get a home inspection done to protect themselves from potential future issues.

Patent and Latent Defects

When it comes to property defects, they fall into two broad categories: patent and latent defects. Patent defects are visible to the naked eye, including cracks in walls, sagging gutters, deteriorated woodwork, or damaged light switches. Latent defects, on the other hand, are hidden problems like structural issues, leaking roofs, faulty geysers, and rising dampness. These are not as easily noticeable, making the task of property inspection a specialized job.
