We often inspect buildings prior to real estate closings. Buyers and sellers are interested in engaging our services to avoid future complications. Recently, we had a request from a home buyer who did not read the home inspection report she received. The building inspection report stated clearly that mold growth was visible but she loved the residence and was in a rush to close. Now, a couple of years later, she is faced with the expense of roof repairs and mold remediation.
The inspections that occur prior to real estate transactions are important. Reports that disclose the condition of the property should be read in their entirety. Properties that seem perfect may not be. Paying for the inspection is only part of the process; reading reports will protect your interests, save money, and minimize future inconvenience.
