FAQs

WHEN DO I GET A HOME INSPECTION?

A home inspector is typically contacted right after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. However, before you sign, be sure that there is an inspection clause in the purchase contract specifying that your purchase obligation is contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated with respect to the findings of the inspection.

CAN A HOUSE “FAIL” AN INSPECTION?

No. A professional home inspection is simply an examination of your home or prospective home. A home inspector, does not pass or fail a house, but simply describes its condition and indicates which items will be in need of repair or replacement immediately or near future.
