Seven Questions to Ask Your Home Inspector
Make sure your home inspector carries Errors and Omissions Insurance. This insurance both protects the inspector from litigation as well as protects you, the homeowner, in the event that future problems arise. It is imperative that your home inspector carries E&O insurance, because without it, you could be stuck with a colossal problem in your new house that was completely overlooked.
6. How long will the inspection take?
A typical single-family house inspection takes two to three hours to complete. Be wary of an overly brief inspection, as you really don’t want your home inspector to overlook any potential problems with the house. Ask the inspector if you can come along for the inspection.
7. What type of inspection report will I receive?
Make sure you receive a written report that is both legible and without too much technical jargon. Ask when you will receive the report. Some inspectors give a copy of their immediate report right then and there while others take 24 hours to provide a full report to their clients.
