Pre-Purchase (Buyer’s) Inspections
This type of inspection is usually performed after a property has been put on the market by a seller but before a potential buyer has taken possession of the property prior to the closing contract. The buyer will usually sign a contingency agreement with the seller prior to ordering this type of inspection. If a property fails to meet the buyer’s expectations as a result of the inspection, then the sale may fall through. In many cases, a Buyer’s Inspection will help both the buyer and the seller to identify damage or other problems that may exist with a property so that both parties can either renegotiate the selling price or the seller’s responsibilities to repair the property at the seller’s expense prior to the final close. Even if the seller has already performed a Seller’s Inspection, buyers should still perform their own inspections to prevent “seller’s bias” in any shape or form.
