Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

This inspection is conducted prior to occupancy. The home builder notifies the Buyer when their property is ready for the walk through inspection.  A prudent Buyer can request that a home inspector accompany them on the pre-delivery walk through. A “punch list” is produced with completion dates and signed-off by both parties. The Buyer cannot back out of the agreement with the pre-delivery inspection. However, its proper use is to verify that the builder has satisfied all contractual conditions with respect to:

  • workmanship and material finishes
  • satisfactory operation of all appliances, mechanical and electrical systems
  • confirmation of square footage, material and equipment as per contract
  • inclusion of all agreed to extras
