There are some hidden dangers in buying foreclosure properties. To help you go into this type of transaction with your eyes wide open, Dade Home Inspections offers professional certificate of use inspections in Miami Dade county for buyers who are purchasing foreclosed properties. The requirement for a COU inspection for this type of transaction came about in early 2009 under an ordinance adopted by the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners in late 2008. Ordinance No. 08-133 applies to all residential properties in unincorporated Miami-Dade County which are acquired through a Certificate of Title (Foreclosures and Judgments), in accordance with Chapter 45, Florida Statutes. Residential properties affected include single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and duplexes. The adopted ordinance requires that title holders of foreclosed properties obtain a Certificate of Use (CU) prior to offering the property for sale, transfer or alienation.

"We do comprehensive home inspections, covering everything from roofs, A/C and heating systems, plumbing, mold, swimming pools, sea walls and electrical systems", says VP Erick Torres. "And best of all, there is no out of pocket expense for buyers as Dade Home Inspections gets paid at closing by the bank or asset mnanager."

Their comprehensive inspections cover roof coverings and components, attic, insulation, eves, and soffits, exterior and interior walls, windows, floors, and doors, structural components, crawl space, plumbing lines, and fixtures, electrical panels, switches, and outlets, heating and air conditioning systems and more.
