WHAT WE DO 

Typically, a home inspector is contacted right after the purchase offer has been accepted and the contract has been signed. However, before you sign, be sure that there is a home inspection clause in the contract that makes your purchase obligation contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection. This inspection clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.

 

It is important to schedule the home inspection directly following acceptance to ensure that you have sufficient time to have all necessary inspections completed (including any recommended further evaluations by specialists), receive all inspection reports, and to negotiate any requests for repairs or credits. Most purchase contracts have an inspection contingency period of 15 days from acceptance, but you should double-check your purchase contract or contact your real estate agent to verify this.

Property Geekz inspectors are insured and certified to inspect your home. If the time has come to have your home inspected, don't hesitate giving him a call to set up an appointment or to ask him any questions that you might have. He will be more than happy to discuss the inspection process with you, and address any concerns that you might have.
