What Happens During a Pre-Settlement Walk Through


What is a Pre-Settlement Walk Through?

A Pre-Settlement Walk Through, also known as an “orientation” is when you and your Construction Supervisor will conduct a final “walk through” or “inspection” of your new home. The primary purpose is to acquaint you with the maintenance requirements and warranty information about your new home. 


When does a Pre-Settlement Walk Through occur?

Just like it sounds, a Pre-Settlement Walk Through occurs after the home is built, prior to settlement.


Why do I need a Pre-Settlement Walk Through?


The Pre-Settlement Walk Through is a very important part of the new home building process. It gives you an opportunity to spot items that need to be corrected or adjusted, as well as give you time to learn the ins and outs of your new home and community prior to moving in.


What happens during a Pre-Settlement Walk Through?

During this time, your Construction Supervisor will familiarize you with the operation of all equipment, review your maintenance responsibilities, discuss warranty coverage and procedures, and inspect your New Home in accordance with a detailed checklist.

Once the checklist items have been satisfactorily completed by both parties, you will be one step closer to officially being a homeowner!
