When I do a pre-approval for clients, one of the discussions is about the home buying process and the importance of a home inspector. Most people understand, but from time to time I am asked why they need one. Very quickly they understand how important.
There are times that I have clients referred to me, that I would not have done a pre-approval for and they already have a deposit on a property. Every once and in while, the purchase agreement indicates no inspections.
I never understand the rationale, but when I am told that one of the parties recommended that a home inspection was not necessary, I get extremely concerned.
The home inspections should always be part of every home purchase, no matter what.
