Get Professional Inspections

Your purchase contract should permit you to get professional inspections and will govern your rights if the inspections show problems. You either have the right to inspect the house, or you don't. In most cases you have the right to inspect and there are some limitations as to your rights after the home inspection.

If your purchase contract was "as-is" then you normally have the right to withdraw your offer, re-negotiate (within a timeframe). Some real estate contract have a built-in percentage that is the maximum for which the seller is required to repair or pay.

Before you make an offer and sign a purchase contract, ask me or your attorney which inspections are best for your area. Have the necessary inspections included as a contingency of your offer.

With the normal purchase contract I will incorporate for inspections within 5 days and the right to withdraw from the contract if we are not satisfied with the inspection results. This mean we can either withdraw or re-negotiate with the seller to either reduce the selling price or provide a seller concession for repairs.

These home inspection will normally occur 2-3 days after the contract has been executed (agreement has been met with all parties).

Normal South Florida home inspections provide for roof, termite, and general areas. The general area inspector will check almost everything inside the property, to include all appliances, electrical, plumbing and structure.

When buying a home, make sure to get professional inspections done on the house prior to the home purchase.
