We have seen a lot of Projects in India have the tagline “QUALITY HOMES” in their brochures, project videos, and in other marketing material. But really all these homes are built with 100% quality and free from all kinds of snags or defects? We don’t think so there is a defect free home till now.
We have done more than 2000+ inspections in the last 10+ years. But not found a single home or flat are defect free. Even if considering critical or high-impact defects we don’t find any apartment that is defect free.
Common Defects Analysis
The following image will provide all the data kind of the defects we noted during our home inspection process.
As mentioned in the image 10 out of 9 properties has leakage/seepage/ dampness issues. Leakage/seepage not only causes annoyance and inconvenience to affected flat owners and residents, but it can also damage the building structure. Repairing or getting away with leakage/seepage issues may be time-consuming and costly. That’s why every homeowner should get the property pre-inspected and get the leakage/seepage issue repaired by the developer before accepting possession.
Another critical problem we have observed during our inspection is 22% of the property we have inspected doesn’t have earthing in one or more electrical points. As mentioned in the IS CODE 3043:1987 “to ensure freedom from the danger of electric shock voltage exposure to persons in the area;” is the main object of earthing. Earthing is a very essential requirement for every home and should be properly inspected before possession.
Townships Vs Standalone Buildings Analysis
A lot of home buyers think that if they are buying a flat/home from a reputed developer big bang project with all modern amenities will ensure that they will get a quality and defects-free home. But it’s only an assumption by the home buyer. As per the last 10+ years home inspection data shows that the bigger the projects the no’s of defects were on the higher the side.
The above image clearly nullifies the homebuyer’s assumption that buying a flat/home from a reputed developer big bang project with all modern amenities will ensure that they will get a quality and defect free home. It clearly shows that if numerous homes are in a project, then the defects are also on the higher side per 1000 sq. ft.
After above all details about Townships Vs Standalone buildings Analysis, anyone is buying a home from the multi-building/tower luxury project. Then it’s mandatory them to get home inspected from third party home inspection like “PropCheckup” for defect free home.
