Waiving Your Inspection Rights

July 29, 2022

When it comes to making an offer on a home, some buyers are choosing to waive their right to inspections in order to make their offer more competitive. While this may seem like a good idea in theory, weighing your options first is ideal. If the buyers close on the home and then discover items that were not disclosed prior to closing, they may end up having to sue the seller in order to get their money back. By waiving this right, you’re essentially telling the seller that you’re not going to have an inspector come and look at the property before you close on it. It’s important to remember that waiving your inspection right is always taking a risk – so make sure that you know what you’re getting into before you sign anything!

If you’re considering waiving your inspection right, it’s important to understand that the seller is still required by federal law to disclose any known defects in the home. So even if you don’t have an inspector looking at the property, you should still be aware of any potential problems that could arise. In the end, it’s up to you to decide whether or not the risk is worth taking. But if you do choose to waive your inspection right, just make sure that you understand all of the potential consequences first.

During the home buying process, always weigh your options carefully before making any decisions. If you’re not sure about something, be sure to ask your real estate agent for advice. They’ll be able to help you understand the risks involved in waiving your inspection right, and they can also provide you with other options that may be available to you.
