Pre-Purchase Inspection (also known as) Buyer Inspection:
This service is for the purchaser/buyer of the property
Once the purchase agreement has been signed, the purchaser will usually have anywhere from 2-10 days to complete the property inspection. The purchaser of the property hires the inspector and the purchaser is encouraged to attend. Often, but not always, the purchaser’s agent and Sellers’ agent will be present.
Once the inspection is complete, the inspection report is submitted to the purchaser who may then choose to waive the inspection or consider other options if necessary. It is best to discuss these options with your agent.
