I recently went through a home inspection with my buyer on a bank-owned property. The property was being sold as-is, with the inspection solely to satisfy the buyers curiosity and at the buyers discretion. To every one’s surprise, a large nest was found in the attic. Large is understatement, as a moderately sized child could easily have fit inside. Even though no repairs would be made by the seller, I took a chance and submitted a request to remedy and found them very willing to pay for not only the removal, but repairing the cause of access as well.
The moral of the story here is that even though the inspection was to be for informational purposes and at the buyer’s expense, the buyer wisely chose to spend the money for the inspection and low and behold, will keep money in his pocket in the end.
