All too often, people do not do their due diligence and/or they are not educated by someone who knows the industry, and those memories turn into something they would like to forget. As mentioned in the video above, Home Inspection is definitely one of, if not the, most important components of the residential real estate process.

Brick NJ Real Estate Lawyers on Home Inspection

During a home inspection contingency, you are going to hire a home inspector at your cost who will go through your property with a fine-tooth comb and produce a report with all the defective items associated with the property. I strongly encourage you to actually attend the home inspection with the inspector to learn everything you can about your property. The home Inspector will explain what he is looking at as well as how the systems work in the house. You will see some things on an inspection report.  Don’t panic.  Even new homes will have some things, just like humans it probably won’t be perfect. Thereafter you let me know what items you want the seller to fix prior to closing. I would then negotiate with the seller’s attorney to find out what the seller will and not will do prior to closing. If the seller will not fix the defective items that you request you can cancel the contract and receive a refund of your deposit money.

The home inspection can be used your best resource or turn out to be your biggest regret. This critical step should provide the buyer with the peace of mind necessary to move through the process to closing without any major concern. If they neglect to properly inspect, or they are not under the experienced guidance of Counsel, they could end up in a position where they are reconsidering their entire position because certain existing conditions were not properly specified by the seller or identified by the inspector. Don’t allow an eagerness to purchase the home to cloud your judgment and allow things to be overlooked; which will result in many future headaches and the wasting of your hard-earned dollars after you close.
