To protect your investment! In most country’s buyers and pro active sellers have an inspection/survey.
In most countries there ARE government inspections performed as the property is being developed. In Thailand there is not. Yes permits are needed and paid for but there is no service after. So it’s up to the developer or contractor to do as they please no one will check. The big problem here is a little money goes along way. For example why not use half water half paint and save money it will look good for 6 months. Some bigger developments will use project management companies. Sad to say many of the staff who do the inspecting have no real training. So even brand new property needs inspections. Typically we find hundreds of defects some minor some major on every inspection.
Basically most are afraid it will ruin the sale. Yes real estate is hard to sell in Thailand. Inspections very seldom ruin a sale. I’ve done hundreds and most customers end up buying. In many cases they have already purchased off plan and end up getting what they paid for because of inspections. So before you choose an agent make sure they recommend inspection.
