Architectural inspection Curacao

10 augustus 2019

Buying a home on Curacao subject to a structural inspection!

The reservation for carrying out a building inspection means that the buyer, after having reached agreement on the price and other conditions, will have a building inspection carried out. Should important matters emerge from this inspection that impede the purchase of the home, the buyer has the right to cancel the purchase free of charge.

Architectural inspection of a home: what is it?

An architectural inspection is a report drawn up by an independent inspection agency that assesses the structural condition of a home. In this report, the structural defects are mentioned with the associated cost item to repair these defects.
A building inspection provides a good and reliable picture of the structural condition of the house for the buyer who is considering buying the house. The structural inspection shows whether there are defects or overdue maintenance and gives an indication of the repair costs in the short and long term.

Advice from a real estate agent on Curacao!

Have you already found defects yourself and would you like advice on what you can do with this in the negotiations? Request free purchase advice now. As a real estate agent with years of experience in Curacao, I have insight into market figures, I give you tips for the negotiations and can estimate how many interested people there are for a particular home. We can also exchange ideas. This gives you even more confidence to make the right decision.

When do you perform an architectural inspection on Curacao?

You can choose to have a building inspection carried out before the statutory reflection period has expired. Another option is for the building inspection to be carried out within 10 days after the statutory reflection period has expired. In this case, it is agreed that the agreement can be dissolved if the repair of defects and immediately necessary overdue maintenance exceeds a certain agreed amount. On average, this amount is around NAF 10,000 in structural defects (for example, rotten window frames or a bad roof or cracks in the foundation).
Of course it is also possible to have a construction inspection carried out at an earlier stage, so that you know where you stand before you start the negotiations. Because a construction inspection on Curacao quickly costs NAF 500, it is a waste of your money if you do not reach an agreement in advance.
