Importance of Completing Inspection Repairs on Buyer’s Response Prior to Closing

After reviewing and writing estimates on over 13,000 homes we have a few reminders on the importance of addressing buyer’s response on inspection repairs before the closing on the sale of the home:

  1. Major and Safety Repairs.

Major repairs and deferred maintenance can quickly lead to additional issues and further damage to the home if left unrepaired.  Safety issues can lead to harm to the new homeowner and their children.  Agents, buyers and sellers all need to protect themselves. Get it done.

  1. Limits Seller’s Liability.

Completing all the repairs agreed upon by both the buyer and seller limits the seller’s liability to post closing issues, such as complaints, claims or lawsuits.

  1. Buyer’s Assurance.

Completing repairs before closing protects buyers against hidden damage and unforeseen costs that could be exposed when a repair is made after closing.  Buyers want to have peace of mind about their new home and not be surprised with unforeseen issues. When repairs are completed, this provides the buyers the opportunity to have the repairs re-inspected before they take ownership.  Buyers can settle in to their new home knowing that the repairs were done properly.

  1. Negotiating.

When price is negotiated down or money given back at closing we find that often times the new buyer fails to have the repairs made.  The needed repairs come up again when the house is resold.

  1. Storm Damage.

Seller’s insurance company could pay for roofing, siding, or other damage if caught in advance of the sale.

Indianapolis Mold Prevention Tip from our resident Mold Removal Expert

Indiana Residential mold removal specialists inspect chimney cap, replace and repair.

Do you have a fireplace? Then you have a chimney cap.  Chimney caps can leak and allow water inside your home. Water opens the door for mold growth. Mold growth can lead to extensive mold removal and home repair expenses.

So, what condition is yours in? Well, you probably don’t know until a Home Inspector reveals on your Inspection report that there is biological growth (aka MOLD) around the chimney chase, flue, etc. This is one of the most common water intrusion repairs that our Indianapolis mold removal team addresses for homeowners when they are selling their home.  Unfortunately, over time chimney caps can become rusted, pitted out and will deteriorate, which allows water into your attic.  That water accumulates and mold begins to grow when the conditions are right. Attic mold spreads and can become a major issue and big expense to remediate the mold.

Avoid treating your entire attic for mold growth and mold removal by knowing how to look for warning signs and catch the leaks early. If your home is 25 years or older, or you suspect the need of a new roof, you can stay ahead of major damage by having your roof and chimney area evaluated by an Indianapolis mold removal professional. Our team can help you avoid this costly repair by providing a free inspection of your chimney and evaluate the condition of your entire roof. Don’t wait for an Inspection to find out the extent of the damage, be proactive and avoid this costly mistake that we see so often.
