Buyers should choose to have Home Inspections, at their expense, when purchasing. In fact, most offers are subject to having a home inspection. By having a home inspection, the home’s vital systems are checked. A home Inspection allows YOU to buy your home with confidence. Should the inspection reveal substandard issues, you then have the right to have the Seller repair/or replace as negotiated, or to not purchase. Linda Hargreaves & Assoc. will help YOU negotiate the required repairs with the Seller after your home has been inspected.
