Inspections provide both the land developer and the builder with a way to verify the conditions on a lot at the time of purchase. Failure to submit an inspection will be taken by the land developer to mean that there are no damages or issues with the lot.
What do I do?
- Login to LotWorks and on your dashboard go to the Inspection section.
- Select an inspection status to see a list of lots, OR
- You can also use the search at the top of the page to go to a specific lot.
Tips for Submissions
We strongly recommend that you:
- Submit one inspection at a time,
- Don't click or close the inspection window while uploading, and
- Don't logout before the upload is complete.
The files you attach to your inspection will also determine how long it takes to submit. We recommend that each file not exceed ~2MB in size.
Adobe has some helpful tools available for optimizing the size of a PDF, and there are many online optimizer tools available that can reduce the file-size of an image.
For Initial Inspections, the form is typically available 1 day after the initial deposit has been received. Builders will have 21 days to complete the inspection by noting any damages or issues.
