The best reason to have your condo inspected professionally is that you are buying a part of everybody else’s unit in the building. That means that you will probably be responsible for contributing financially to fix things that need fixing. Using the independent eyes of a professional home inspector before you buy helps you consider future expenses. It is a myth that all condo repairs are the responsibility of the strata. Typically the strata is responsible for the maintenance of the common areas only, and not the interior aspect of your unit.
