Avoid The Worry...Get A Home Inspection!
Now that you have that perfect Claremore home under contract, all you have to do is wait for closing right? Well, not exactly. Buying a new home is very stressful all by itself, but as a new homebuyer you may begin to worry about the possible troubles that lay behind door #1. The answer to relieving this worry is to always get a home inspection.
Your Oklahoma Uniform Contract (Residential Contract of Sale of Real Estate) is designed to protect the buyer and seller during a real estate purchase. It is always recommended that you get your new home inspected. There is so much emphasis on this that the contract actually takes up three of six pages discussing the inspection process. The person doing the inspection may be an Oklahoma Liscensed Home Inspector, a licensed architect, professional engineer, professional craftsman and or other individuals retained by the buyer to perform a limited or specialised inspection. Buyers may even choose to do thier own inspection, if they think appropriate.
What can the buyer inspect? According to the contract the buyers inspections may include, but not be limited to...
* Any item on the disclosure statement or disclaimer
statement unless exempt.
* Flood, Storm Run Off, Water, Storm Sewer Backup or
* Psychologically Impacted Property and Megan's Law
