Pre- purchase inspections
Building inspections, on a property, do not include the condition of the swimming pool. Usually the most that's ever inspected is the condition of the pool fence.
Can you afford to purchase the property then spend thousands on pool repairs, without any negotiation on the settlement price?
If not then for around $250.00 for a standard pool, a full leak test, plus a written report on condition of pool equipment is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
