Every prospective home-buyer needs a good home inspection. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Unfortunately, there are too many Sellers out there that are willing to try to cover up a defect at a property in order to get the best price on their sale.

For folks in other states, please check with your own state government or local waste/recycling company. (e.g. - Massachusetts residents can contact the MA Dept of Environmental Protection ).
