If the inspection reveals more issues than you're willing to deal with, you may be able to back out of the deal, especially if a contingency is built into the agreement.

Should I attend the home inspection? It is not necessary for you to be present for the inspection, but it is recommended. You will be able to observe the inspector and ask questions directly, as you learn about the condition of the home, how it's systems work and how to maintain it. You will also find the written report easier to understand if you've seen the property first-hand through the inspector's eyes.

What is Thermal Image Scanning?
Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature and when moisture, heat, cold, or wood destroying insects are introduced into the structure the thermal signature changes. The changes can be subtle or dramatic but with this incredible thermal image scanning technology the thermal signatures are detectable where they wouldn't be able to be seen with the naked eye.
Thermal image scanning technology is now being used to evaluate residential and commercial structures. As a non-invasive testing tool it can quickly help discern where there are suspected issues. This can help to limit the areas where time consuming further evaluation and destructive discovery is needed.
The legal implications of seller disclosure requirements often put sellers in a difficult position. If a condition is found after a home has sold and was not disclosed, sellers may be asked to prove they were unaware of the problem. By having your home Pre-Inspected, you have documentation to supplement your Seller Disclosure form regarding what you did, and did not know aboth the condition of your home. Patch Independent Home Inspections OFFERS to the seller, inspections that can be paid at closing*. Contact your Agent or Patch IHI to set up the inspection for your listing today. *At closing or when the contract is cancelled with the agent - whatever comes first.
