Structure is an important part of the inspection. If you are buying a used home or a new construction home, a professional structural home inspection is an absolute necessity.
In the event that hidden problems are revealed through the structural inspection process, you may do one of two things:
1) If you are not satisfied with the results of the inspection, you may terminate the purchase agreement by notifying the seller in writing and provide a copy of the structural inspection report disclosing the problems causing your discomfort.
2) You may submit a list of the problems discovered in the inspection report to the seller and request that the seller make the necessary corrections and repairs before the deal is closed, or adjust the price accordingly.
