Before you finalize the sale of your new home, you have to decide which types of professional inspections to pay for in case you want to negotiate with the seller to have them pay for repairs. A home inspector who performs a generalized inspection can help to catch big things (like major roof problems), but you may need other professional inspections as well.
For instance, if the home has a septic system and you haven’t owned a septic system before, you may want to pay for a professional septic inspection so you know what you’re getting yourself into. The same goes for the plumbing system. Like the septic, much of the plumbing system is out of sight, out of mind, and problems may hide until they get serious.
Discover some aspects of the plumbing system that a professional plumbing inspection can assess to give you more peace of mind about the condition of the home before you buy it.
