Final Inspection and Mortgage Loan Closing
When all is done, be sure your subs have called for their final inspections and that you have called for a final building inspection. Again, if you don’t have a building inspection department, for peace of mind, call in an inspection engineer before final payment to relevant subs. Final inspections will verify compliance with code and that everything works.
When all work has been approved by inspectors, utility companies (if applicable), your lender, and most importantly you, you are ready to convert any construction financing to the permanent mortgage. This is usually arranged at the convenience of the lender, attorney, and you. It takes less than an hour. Now you can move in and enjoy.
