When you’re buying a home, whether it’s a Port Royal condo or a house in El Pescador—or anything else, your real estate purchase contract likely contains a contingency that lets you walk away from the deal if there’s a major problem with the home inspection.
But what should you do about problems if you don’t want to walk away?
Do Sellers Have to Fix Things That Pop Up on the Inspection?
Sellers don’t have to do anything—but in many cases, they are willing to make repairs so you’ll still buy the home.
If you’d prefer to hire your own contractor (and be able to supervise repairs), you can do that too—just ask the seller to take what it would cost you off the selling price and go from there.
What if You Don’t Have a Home Inspection Contingency?
If there’s no home inspection contingency in your real estate purchase contract, you’re between a rock and a hard place. You can’t force the seller to fix the issue, and you can’t back out of the deal. That’s why it’s so important to ensure your purchase contract has all the protections you need built into it from the beginning.
