You have a set number of days after acceptance to have inspections performed on the property (see page 8 of the one to four residential contract, section 23). Use your option time wisely to inspect, research and visit the property.
Most buyers will perform a general property inspection, but there are other inspections to consider as well: termite inspection, water tests, well test, septic inspection, lead-based paint inspection, mold inspection, radon inspection, proof of insurability (you can find this out from your insurance agent), or any other environmental inspections.
I’d recommend a general inspection and a pest inspection. Termites are super active these days. Please note that VA loans will require a pest inspection.
You will need to call and arrange the inspection within this time frame. Please let me know what inspection(s) you are having done, what inspector(s) you decide to use, and when the inspections are scheduled. For your convenience, I’m providing a list of inspectors I have worked with previously. Feel free to choose one of these inspectors or any other you’d prefer. PLEASE SCHEDULE INSPECTIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
If you need more than the agreed upon days in the contract to conduct more inspections, please let us know immediately so we can request an extension of the inspection period from the sellers. There will be an additional fee involved and this requires seller approval.
