Why You Need A Home Inspection Prior To Closing
Before you set up a closing date for your home purchase, you will need to get a home inspection. While you may have already signed your contract, it may be voided if severe problems are discovered during the inspection. Real estate contracts often have clauses that state "pending home inspection." If the problem that your home inspector finds is one that will be expensive, the seller may be required to reimburse you for the repairs, have the repairs done before you move in, or void the contract if you don't want to have the repairs made.
