First Time Home Buyers
Can the inspector fail a home?
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of your prospective home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, can not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what may need to be repaired or replaced.
Pre-Purchase Home Inspections
Prior to finalizing your purchase you should be informed of the condition of the home.
A professional home inspector will prepare a detailed report of what will likely be the largest purchase you will ever make. The inspection will reduce the risk of costly surprises and allow you to prioritize any repairs that are required. With a Right House home inspection you can make an informed buying decision and ensure that you are purchasing the right house.
This type of inspection is usually requested by the seller before the property is listed for sale. This inspection will identify for the seller any hidden problem and allow the seller the option of repairing the condition. It is recommended to provide the potential home buyer and the agents a copy of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs.
