NJ home inspections and new construction often go hand in hand. While a new home needs a temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO) or a certificate of occupancy (CO) prior to moving in there should be a home inspection so that a home owners has a checklist of what condition the home is in. A TCO or CO is conducted by a municipal or county building official but a home inspection is conducted by a private inspector.
A new home inspection in New Jersey has different needs than an older existing home might. Making sure everything is in working order and operational is important. While one would not expect a new dishwasher to leak for example, it is still important to ensure that it was hooked up properly and is indeed operational. A NJ home inspector may examine a new home and come up with a punch list rather than serious issues but regardless of the outcome it is an important process to complete prior to moving in.
