Once your offer is accepted, you typically have 10 business days to perform a structural home inspection, as well as optional inspections such as radon (air and water), water quality, lead paint and mold. These inspections are important, as they provide an independent review of the property that is not influenced by any of the other parties involved.
Please note: You should make an appointment with the inspector at a convenient time for you, as you or your representative should be present at the inspection. This process typically takes 3 to 4 hours. Also, you will need to give the seller at least 24 hours notice. You can coordinate the date and time with me, and I’ll contact the seller on your behalf.
