HOME INSPECTION AND TERMITE/WDO INSPECTION: If you are purchasing a home in Gainesville, FL, it is recommended that you have a home and termite inspection during your inspection period.  A list of a few local home and termite inspectors is provided below.

 

APPRAISAL: If you are financing your purchase, you will need to have an appraisal performed.  The lender will arrange this on your behalf through a third party and you will pay for it.  If you are purchasing your home with cash, you are not required to have an appraisal but you may wish to.  A list of a few local appraisers is provided below.

 

SURVEY: You will need to purchase a survey if the seller does not have one to provide you that the termite company will accept. 

 

ROOF INSPECTOR:  If your home inspector indicates that the roof on the property you are purchasing has limited life left, you may want to have a separate roof inspection conducted from a roofer to get a further opinion of the life left in the roof. 

 

RADON INSPECTION: High levels of radon have been found in Florida.  Radon is a colorless odorless gas believed to be carcinogenic if exposed to higher than EPA approved levels.  During your inspection period, you are also allowed to have a radon inspection.  These take time because the carbon cannisters typically need to be sent off to a lab.  You will need to schedule a radon inspection immediately so that your results come in before the end of your inspection period. 

 

MOLD INSPECTION: Should the property have evidence of roof leaks or other water intrusion, you may elect to have a mold inspection to determine the presence of mold and the cost for remidiation if mold is discovered during your inspection period.

 

HOME OWNER'S INSURANCE:  Required by the lender and a good idea to have even if you're purchasing via cash.  It is not required in cash transcations but insurance typically assists with unforseen circumstances that can occur to your home.
