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:
- Ants are NOT covered in pest inspections. They are apparently not going to destroy the home; however, disgusting and annoying they are.
- 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.
- 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.
