Inspect the condo, check for sure before transferring.

Inspection of the condo we purchased It is an acknowledgment of the quality of construction work that the project will deliver to us. Before the actual transfer of ownership Each project will have conditions. Different methods Some projects require that the condo inspection be done no more than 2 or 3 times and then you must sign and accept it. which must read the conditions carefully

If the amount specified by the project has been completed, but it appears that it has not been corrected as reported. You may have to talk to the salesperson. which is usually If it is a point that has been reported since the first time the condo was inspected (must take photos as evidence) but has not been corrected. The project will have no problem solving it again.

But in the case where there are more and more points that need to be corrected every time you come to inspect. The project may consider that We are delaying the transfer of ownership yet. Might want to find it first.

If the project considers that Buyers are biding their time. Most projects end when a predetermined number of revisions are reached. and informed that no matter what, the transfer must be accepted. If the owner of the condominium unit has not yet accepted the transfer of ownership It’s starting to get difficult. and the down payment may be forfeited.

Condo inspection equipment

  1. Post-it notes for marking points that need to be repaired. will make it clearer (When finished pasting I will write it down. Or you can take pictures and keep them as evidence. But I recommend you take a photo.)
  2. Battery charger cable: This one is the easiest to carry to test the electrical system. Because if anyone is not comfortable using a screwdriver to measure electricity The battery charger cable is the best answer.
  3. Glass ball for checking the slope of the floor.
  4. Coins for knocking on the floor or tiles.
  5. Water tank: Test the slope of the bathroom and balcony area because if the project does not make the room slope to the degree water will flow into the drain. Water will remain on the floor. which is not good in the long run
  6. Camera: You can use a cell phone camera. It doesn’t have to be a digital camera. To capture everything in detail

List of condo inspection items

  1. Door – knob – hinge Check for completeness. Does the door close normally? Is there a swollen or stiff part, is it tilted, is there a loud noise when opening and closing? As well as the knobs and hinges, do they work normally or not? Especially the hinges, are there any openings, or not flush with the door?
  2. Window, opening, and closing, latch used to lock the window Can it be used normally or is it stiff? Or does it not lock when closed?
  3. Floors in every room, You may use an assistive device such as a crystal ball to check the slope. In the case of laminate flooring, There will be a problem with some parts of the floor collapsing. In the case of a tile area, It encountered some collapse. But not as much use, a method of carefully walking every square meter of the room. All around the edges of the room (Most will collapse in this area) In the middle of the room, walk around several times.
  4. Floor cornice. The most common problem is that there will be openings and separations of the floor cornice from the wall. You have to try and check every point.
  5. Holes along the edge of the wall or holes in the floor, in the corners of the room, or even on the floor. Sometimes you will find a gap. The project technician may have forgotten about the grout or cracks in wood, etc., regardless of the cause, You must check it out.
  6. In-room walls, the most common problem is cracks, which may not be caused by cracks in the structure. But it is a characteristic of cracked paint. You should let the technician keep it neat.

7. Tiles in various parts of the room. The current apartment that has tiles is the bathroom. And the most problematic point is the wall tiles. Because the current method of installing tiles uses a method called “salapao” in engineering language, which is to put cement in the center of the tile. Then stick it on the wall, so the surrounding tile won’t be full. When tapping a coin, you will hear the sound of the cement not being filled.
In this case, many people are not serious. But many serious people chose to request that they be dismantled again. (But some projects refuse to dismantle it) As for the tile floors, You can knock to check. But most people don’t have as many problems with buns as with walls.
8. Balcony: This area may seem like there is nothing, but you have to look at it. One problem that is encountered is that the balcony’s railing is not up to standard. Shorter than it should be (Normally it should be at waist level and above.) This must be changed. Because it’s very dangerous.
Another common problem is that the floor doesn’t slope. This one must be notified to be redone. Because if the water doesn’t go into the drain Leftovers will be a problem in the future.
9. Bathroom: In addition to the water system and various sanitary ware, you also need to consider the slope as well as the balcony floor.
10. Color inside the room: Check the neatness of the paint job.
11. Wallpaper in the case where the walls of the room have wallpaper. You should look carefully at the neatness of the work.
12. Ceiling: At this point, people may be less interested. But you shouldn’t miss it. Because sometimes Before checking, it appeared that there was a problem with the floor in the room above. It affects the ceiling of our floor, causing stains or marks that may cause danger in the future. Should be notified to edit
13. Water system: In addition to the faucet, sanitary ware, spray hose, and shower, you also need to check the water system at the sink to see if it works well or not. And is there a water leak under the sink?
14. Electrical system: If you are an expert, you will choose to use inspection equipment. Or insert a screwdriver to test whether there is a problem with the electrical system or not. But if we are ordinary people When going to inspect the condo yourself Choosing to use a phone charger cable is convenient. Try plugging in every plug to see if it works or not.
15. TV cable system in the room We probably don’t even have to carry the television ourselves. However, some projects have inspection equipment prepared to test for us to see.
16. Built-in cabinets or included furniture Must check for neatness Is there any damage? Because of this furniture, It is a product ordered in large quantities. There may be damage.
17. Included electrical appliances Most are air conditioners. Bathroom ventilator Smoke vent on the kitchen counter Must see if it works or not.
Turn on the air conditioner and test it. Turn on every device you get. Turn on all devices Check carefully about the warranty expiration date. Because most products are ordered in large lots. and ordered since the project had just begun construction By the time we get it installed, it may be out of date, or it may already be damaged. Let’s hasten to fix it.

You can inspect the condo yourself without any hassle.

When inspecting a condo, many people may feel discouraged when they see a long list of things that need to be inspected. I don’t have any basic knowledge about the structure, electrical system, and water supply. Can I inspect the condo?

Inspecting a condo isn’t that difficult. Invite siblings and friends to help each other out and inspect according to the list of items. I believe it’s covered.

Examples of points that need to be checked

Points that need to be checkedInspection method
Door-Knob-HingeOpen-close completely, not stuck.
floorDoes not collapse, does not slope
wallSmooth, no cracks
Water systemWater flows well, no leaks.
Electrical systemWorks well everywhere, with no leaks.

Is it a good idea to hire someone to inspect the condo?

If you are unsure or not confident about inspecting the condo yourself, you can hire someone to help inspect the project. You may check with the project first to see if it is allowed or not. Some projects are allowed (Because they are considered one of the people who accompany the owner of the condominium unit), but some projects do not allow this.

by the person hired to inspect There are often experiences and various equipment that facilitate condo inspections, such as electrical inspection equipment, floors, flashlights to check for swelling or unevenness, and stairs for climbing to check at odd angles, which will help relieve effort. The salary rate is approximately 1,000-4,000 baht, depending on the size of the apartment.

Inspection not completed Do not accept condo transfers.

In the case where the project wants to expedite the transfer of the condo to make the total amount There will be a promotion: transfer first, check later, meaning you have to sign to receive the apartment first. Then have the technician come and collect it later. In cases like this, many times there are problems. Once the ownership had been transferred The technician didn’t come to repair it, there was no technician, or the repair was delayed.

It is recommended that you check and receive it properly. Let’s see that after fixing it, signing it, and then transferring ownership is not too late. Because if the project wants you to transfer quickly Had to bring a team of technicians to service. Fix it quickly. But if the ownership has already been transferred Sometimes it’s difficult.
