Inspection report is not a repair list for sellers
Sep 30, 2016 6:00 AM
Q. Before buying our home, we hired a home inspector to make a complete repair list for the sellers. He did a very thorough job, but the inspection was a waste of money because the seller refused to fix anything. The inspection report listed problems with the plumbing, electrical wiring, forced air furnace and the roof, but the seller said, "Take it as-is or leave it." This is very disillusioning. If the seller is not obligated to repair defects, then what's the point of having a home inspection?
