Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate Question
Are your Home Inspection Reports Confidential?
This question came up recently with another agent in our office when the listing agent requested on behalf of their seller a copy of the home inspection reports. Our video below covers the confidentiality of your home inspection reports.
Tredyffrin Easttown Home Buyer asks if their home inspection reports are confidential? While it would seem that you as the home buyer pay for the inspections and thus for the reports under the agreement of sale in paragraph 13 it states the seller and their listing agent can request a free copy of any reports conducted by the buyer other than the appraisal report. So the short answer is your reports are not confidential.
However, does a seller always want to see the report? If you are terminating the agreement they may not want to see it because if there is information they are unaware of they now have a duty under the seller disclosure to update and make known any material defects.
If you are asking for a large seller credit or repairs the seller may very well want to see the report to satisfy themselves what you are asking for is actually needed and not something mentioned as an ongoing maintenance issue for later.
