The Aftermath of a Buyer’s Home Inspection – Momma Bear’s Report

The Aftermath of a Buyer’s Home Inspection – Momma Bear’s Report

I want my client’s taken care of.  Period.  I’m not interested in half a$$ so when a client feels slighted, I feel slighted.  However, sometimes understanding situation needs to be done first before Momma Bear makes an appearance.

My buying client found Ants, a Leaky Basement, and Freon Leak right after a stellar, I mean stellar home inspection report.  Looking at the home and pest inspection reports, I found some things that I wasn’t even aware of:

  1. Ants are NOT covered in pest inspections.  They are apparently not going to destroy the home; however, disgusting and annoying they are.
  2. If an area of the Basement is covered and is not able to be viewed and later there is a discovery of a leak,  unfortunately latent issues are not covered by home inspections.
  3. Finally, refrigerant evaluation was not included in the inspection.

It is frustrating to have issues after a home inspection.  It just is.  There is no two ways to get around it.  Read carefully what the inspection covers.
