Home Inspections

An offer to buy a home can include a "subject to" clause that is dependent on a home passing inspection. Not all buyers elect to include this clause because they may be purchasing a new home that is already under warranty, they may know enough abouth omes and building that an inspection is not necessary, or they may want to save money.

Home inspections give you a professional assessment of a home's condition. With a home being a major purchase, an inspection gives you peace of mind in knowing whether there are any deficiencies that need to be dealt with now or in the future.

When writing your offer, include a clause that purchase is contingent on a satisfactory home inspection. Also include a clause for a final preclose walkthrough to ensure the property is in the condition you have agreed to and that any required fixes have been made.

Types of Inspections

A number of inspections are common in residential realty transactions. They include:

1. Home Inspection

2. Radon Inspection

3. Termite Inspection

4. Lead Based Paint Inspection

5. Survey

6. Sewer/Septic Inspection

An inspection is recommended on every purchase of real property. The buyer can choose any inspector they like.
