The construction loan draw inspection process typically involves the following steps

Loan Agreement Review

The inspector begins by reviewing the loan agreement to understand the terms and conditions, including the disbursement schedule and inspection requirements.

Site Visit

The inspector visits the construction site to assess the progress of the project. They examine completed work, compare it to the plans and specifications, and note any deviations or issues.

Documentation Review

The inspector reviews various documents, such as construction invoices, lien waivers, change orders, and contractor certifications, to verify the accuracy of the information and ensure compliance with the loan agreement.

Cost Evaluation

The inspector evaluates the costs associated with completed work to confirm that they are reasonable and within the approved budget. They may also assess the value of materials stored on-site.

Report Preparation

Based on the site visit and documentation review, the inspector prepares a detailed report that outlines their findings, including any discrepancies or concerns. This report is shared with the lender to determine if funds should be disbursed.

Fund Disbursement

After the report is submitted, the lender reviews the findings and decides whether to release funds for the completed work. If approved, the funds are typically disbursed to the contractor to cover the expenses.
