What a Home Inspection is Not

A home inspection is not a to-do list for the seller. Over the past quarter-century two of the most common questions asked of home inspectors are "Who should make the repairs?" and "Should I buy this house?" The role of the home inspector is to provide the buyer with their opinion of the home's condition at the time of inspection. Because each real estate sales contract and transaction is different, a buyer's real estate sales professional or lawyer is better qualified to answer these type of questions. A home inspection is not a pass/fail test. "It is up to the buyer to determine whether or not the home passes his own test. A couple looking to totally renovate a home may realize that the need for lots of repairs to the mechanical systems doesn't matter to them.


Conversely, a young couple buying a 'starter home' in which they plan to live only a few years may find a home with many problems is just not for them. It does not make a home purchase risk-free. Most home inspection companies in Miami (e.g.) utilize an inspection contract that outlines the specifics of the home inspection, as well as its limitations. But it's important to remember that while a home inspection is designed to reduce the risk in buying a home, it cannot eliminate that risk.
