How long after a home inspection does the buyer have to back out?
Can the seller be at the home inspection?
The sellers should not be present during the home inspection for all the same reasons the sellers aren’t present for showings. Buyers will often have questions about defects during the inspection which can only be answered out of earshot of the seller, as the buyer owns the information from the home inspection.
Should I share my home inspection report with the seller?
The seller shall have the right, upon request, to receive without charge a copy of a home inspection report from the person for whom it was prepared. The inspector may not provide the report or even discuss the findings with the seller or listing agent unless the client were to provide written permission.
Can you negotiate repairs after home inspection?

What happens when home inspection fails?
A home inspection is an integral part of the house-purchasing process. Buyers are able to withdraw their offer if they don’t like the findings. If the house inspector discovers a leak in the plumbing that resulted in mold growth, numerous purchasers might want to bail even if the seller fixed the issue.
Do buyers back out after inspection?
Most of the time, the purchase contract will allow you an “out” if, after completing your home inspection, you decide the house just isn’t right for you. If you are past the inspection deadline, though, it is possible that your earnest money may not be refundable.
Who pays for home inspection if deal falls through?
A: An appraisal is not part of the closing cost. It has nothing to do with the seller, it is ordered by your Lender and payment is due regardless of the outcome. It is typically paid by the buyer unless specifically negotiated ahead of time to be paid by the seller.
Do you have to leave your house during a home inspection?
