The final inspection should be performed when the house is 100% complete and virtually move-in ready, minus any minor touch up work. Inspections are generally performed before or after the first walkthrough with the builder.
When we say “complete”, that means that all utilities should turned on, a heating and air start up should have been performed, and all included components of the home should be installed and operational so they can be tested. This is very important to the inspection process and should not be rushed as you do not want to pay for an inspection that doesn’t include certain components that weren’t ready for inspection.
