We did a techninal inspection for an appartement in Amsterdam with Homekeur and do highly recommend it. The inspector arrived early to already start some outside inspection. He took his time to look into every detail, answered every question i had and gave some good advices on how to easily fix things. The very next day I receiced a report which covered everything. Overall, having done this inspection gave me a much better feeling when buying the appartement.

Marco inspected the house we're in the process of buying. He was very patient, explained a lot and answered all our questions. The report we got after the inspection is very long and detailed (in Dutch only but it can be easily translated). It is a very good starting point for prioritizing the work to be done on the house.

Work approach Homekeur

Our inspectors prefer to conduct the technical inspection in your presence whenever possible. This way, you will immediately get an impression of the condition of the aforementioned aspects that are observed during the technical inspection. The final technical report will then provide you with even more insight into the technical condition of your new home.

Homekeur guarantees over 15 years of experience. With a thorough and independent inspection, we assess your home from roof to crawl space. It’s no wonder Homekeur has received over 1100 positive reviews on Google!

What is checked during a structural inspection?

An inspector uses advanced software to go over everything, make notes, and take photos. Our inspectors also have years of experience and are familiar with the requirements. During the structural inspection of your home, an extensive list of elements is inspected and completed by the inspector. The property is fully checked from top to bottom, from the roof to the crawl space.

During technical inspections by Homekeur, the assessment includes the following elements:

  • Owner information, such as asbestos, VvE (Owners’ Association), pests, and technical installations
  • Construction, including roof structure and roof sheathing
  • Stairs, railings, and balustrades in the home
  • Condition of any dormer windows, frames, lead, as well as skylights
  • All sanitary groups such as bathroom, kitchen, and toilet
  • Condition of floors, walls, and ceilings in the home
  • All aspects related to installations (water, gas, electricity, etc.)
  • Fire safety and ventilation in the house
  • Crawl space, floor beams, and foundation
  • Roofs, roof tiles, roofing, chimneys, and other roof finishes
  • Gutters, eaves, and rainwater drainage
  • Exterior walls, masonry, cladding, and lintels
  • Frames, paintwork, glazing, and window sills
  • Exterior paintwork of the house
  • Extensions including all associated elements such as roof, frame, facade, etc.
  • Outbuildings, structures, garage, external stairs, garden, and others
  • An estimate of costs including immediate, term, and improvement costs

The technical inspection is purely visual and non-destructive. If our inspector easily detects visually observable asbestos during the examination, it will naturally be noted in the report. However, the inspection is not an asbestos inventory. Additionally, any hidden defects that become visible after removing wall coverings, finishes, etc., are beyond the scope of this visual technical inspection.

Are the costs of a technical inspection deductible?

In some cases, the costs of a technical inspection are tax deductible. For instance, when purchasing an older home, it’s possible that the mortgage lender may require a technical inspection. Additionally, such an inspection is mandatory when the appraisal of a property indicates that the costs for overdue maintenance amount to 10% or more of the property value. In both cases, the costs of the technical inspection are deductible.

While a technical inspection does represent an expense, consider it an investment and insurance against unforeseen structural defects, providing added assurance. Often, the cost of a technical inspection doesn’t outweigh the expenses associated with overdue maintenance. This is especially true if you find yourself in a bind after purchase, for example, discovering improperly installed pipes. By assessing the structural condition, you mitigate this risk.

When do you need a technical inspection?

When purchasing a home, it’s important to have a technical inspection conducted! This can reveal defects or upcoming expenses that you may not discover on your own. The inspectors at Homekeur are completely independent, have no emotional attachment to the property, and can therefore inspect your home objectively, professionally, and comprehensively. This can certainly help you decide whether to proceed with the purchase or negotiate.

In most cases, a technical inspection takes place when buying a new home. You want to avoid purchasing a house where you may encounter maintenance costs after the purchase. These could be defects that you may not notice with the naked eye. You benefit from the fact that Homekeur inspectors inspect your home completely independently. We have no emotional attachment to the property and can therefore objectively, professionally, and thoroughly inspect your home. This can certainly help you decide whether to proceed with the purchase or negotiate.

A technical inspection may incur additional costs, but it provides extra assurance around the purchase. After the inspection, you will know what the defects are, anticipate maintenance costs, and more. It’s important to have the technical inspection conducted independently so that you get a fair and unbiased view of the property. The report provides an expert assessment of the technical condition of the home.

How long does a technical inspection take?

On average, a technical inspection takes about an hour. Homekeur does not strictly adhere to a time limit and will thoroughly inspect the property, ensuring that all the points mentioned above are checked, even if it takes more time.

How quickly can I schedule an appointment for a technical inspection?

We can usually be on-site at short notice. Thanks to our extensive team and nationwide network of inspectors, we have a wide and rapid reach. We guarantee that we can still conduct a technical inspection of your home within a short period of time. This is useful to know if you are in the process of considering a purchase. After the inspection is completed, you will receive the technical inspection report by email within a day.

Technical report after the inspection

The ultimate outcome of technical inspections is a so-called structural report. You will receive this shortly after the inspection. It will be sent digitally to your email inbox and, additionally, will be available in your own housing dashboard through a partnership with mijnwoning.nl (example).

This housing dashboard includes, among other things, photos of any defects, a detailed analysis of the structural condition of the house, and the expected costs within 1 year and 5 years. Homekeur’s reports are recognized by the National Mortgage Guarantee (NHG) and the Foundation
