What should a buyer do after a home inspection?
Depending on the information contained in the report, the buyer will need to decide whether to ask the seller to make the repairs or ask for credit toward the price of the home. If you choose to ask the seller to make the necessary repairs, it could hold up the closing process. However, if you choose to negotiate for a better price, you will need to make the repairs yourself.
How do I pay for a home inspection as a buyer?
Remember, the home inspector is an unbiased third party and doesn’t provide services beyond the inspection process. As a buyer, you will typically need to pay for the inspection at the time the inspection is being done. Some companies allow for the inspection cost to be paid at closing, but that is only for certain circumstances.
How soon after the home inspection will a buyer get the checklist?
It’s a good idea to attend the home inspection because you will be able to see firsthand any issues found in the inspection report. If being there personally is not an option, the buyer will receive a copy of the inspection report upon completion of the home inspection. The buyer then typically has 24 to 72 hours to inform the seller of issues found in the report.
When does the seller get the results of a buyer’s home inspection?
A buyer’s inspection report belongs to the buyer and them alone. The seller may request a copy of the report, but ultimately, it is up to the buyer to decide whether they will provide it. If the seller is concerned about the results of an inspection, they are encouraged to hire an inspector for a pre-listing inspection. This can provide leverage to dispute the results of a buyer’s inspection.
What if the buyer backs out of a home inspection?
If a buyer backs out of performing a home inspection, they may still be liable for all or part of the fee to the home inspector, depending on the timing that the inspection is canceled. The buyer may choose to continue with the purchase process without the buyer’s inspection. However, a buyer can choose to back out at any time including before or just after a home inspection is completed.
