Home Inspections Questions

 

Home Inspection

 

If you are the buyer's agent, how do you go about requesting needed repairs?

Do you go over the report and help the buyer decide what items are essential?

Do you discuss which items are routine maintenance, or normal upgrades that you would like to have addressed?

Do you discuss what has to be an immediate repair, and what can wait as a maintenance item? ... like cleaning the gutters.

 

Or do you take the entire report and ask that every single item, mentioned on the home inspection report, be corrected by the seller?!

 

  Home Inspection

 

The inspection report, usually accompanied with photos, describes the conditions of the exterior, the roof, the electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning systems, the bathrooms, the kitchen, any drainage concerns, and many other items.

Many of the inspector's comments may address upgrades, safety features, CO2, and smoke detectors along with routine maintenance. Some note that an item has some age and to budget for replacement in the future.
