Checklist for completing DIY Property inspection

During property viewings, it’s a good idea to spend around half an hour to one hour for the inspection. Here are some things you can do:

  • Make sure windows and doors open smoothly.
  • Check walls and ceilings for dampness or mould.
  • Look out for sagging ceilings or bulging walls, which could mean structural issues.
  • Lift carpets to check floorboards for damage.
  • Test all taps and see how long it takes for hot water to come through.
  • Flush toilets to make sure they’re working properly.
  • Gently shake plumbing under sinks to check stability and look out for rusted areas or other damage.
  • Evaluate the age of the hot water system and look out for moisture in wet areas.
  • Test light switches, examine the fuse box, and check if there’s an Earth Leakage Safety Switch present.
  • Assess roof condition along with gutters and drain pipes.
  • Inspect exterior walls carefully.
