You’ve received an offer on your home and the buyer decides to pay for a detailed home inspection report. As a seller, what are you obligated to repair? Platinum Property Inspections explains what repairs are mandatory after an inspection on your Prescott home.

One thing that you must keep in mind is that a home inspection report is based on a “visual” inspection at the time of the walk-through. There will be recommendations listed of repairs thought to be needed.

An inspection will uncover any code violations, such as additions done to the property where codes were not met or proper permits were not obtained. However, an inspection is not a code inspection. If there is a discrepancy, you may want to go directly to the city or county to discuss.

Sellers, here is where you need to pay attention. Technically, you are only required to repair the warranted items, meaning those systems that must be operational in order for someone to live in the home, like air conditioning and heating, plumbing and electricity.

Sellers may be asked to correct a variety of items, such as:

  • Make sure appliances are installed correctly
  • Proper insulation
  • Electrical outlets
  • Peeling exterior paint - a potential problem with an FHA loan
  • A leaky roof
  • Termite problems

As a seller, you may want to consider getting your own detailed home inspection report. It will allow you to understand your property and possible hurdles to a profitable and easy close. No home is perfect and a home inspection is not meant to be a seller’s to-do list, but an understanding of what the buyer is getting.

Remember, once you are aware of problems with the home, they become items that must be disclosed to the buyer. If you have questions about what you, as a seller, may be required to fix on your Prescott home, contact Platinum Property Inspections at 928-713-0889.

5 out of 5 stars After a big flooding in my area, I had a lot of standing water in the basement. I called this company for a thorough home inspection, and they found mold contamination everywhere in the house. Thanks to their remediation plan, my home is back to normal now, and I am confident my family is safe!

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
