Does the Buyer Have a Right to a Home Inspection?


You have the right to bear arms, you have the right to free speech and assembly… There is no right to a home inspection in a real estate transaction. There is, however, a legal obligation to live up to the terms of the fully executed purchase agreement (not a lawyer).

The offer to purchase will either be contingent on a home inspection or it won’t. If the offer isn’t subject to a home inspection, then the seller doesn’t have to let the buyer inspect. In fact, the seller shouldn’t let the buyer inspect. Sometimes a buyer will waive the inspection contingency to make their offer stronger. But those terms should be spelled out in the purchase agreement.
