Clients are welcome to attend home inspections. We do ask that you allow the inspector to devote his full attention to inspecting the property. Following or distracting the inspector will cause him to miss important things. For this reason, it’s best if prospective buyers ask the inspector what time they should arrive. At the end of the inspection, your inspector will go over his findings with you. You should wait until this time to ask questions. However, if you have any specific questions or concerns prior to your inspection, you are welcome to mention those at any time before the inspector arrives at the property.
In cases of occupied or furnished properties: If you are a buyer, you should first find out if your agent plans to attend the inspection. If the agent does not plan to attend, it is a good idea to make sure your agent notifies the listing agent that you will be attending the inspection. In many cases, sellers will insist that your agent be present if you plan to attend the home inspection.
