Chicago Home Inspector Lawyers
What Is the Role of the Real Estate Inspector?
Real estate inspectors play the role of the third party in valuing and identifying defects in a piece of real estate. If you are buying property, the real estate inspector's report is a valuable document in identifying potential risks of buying the property. It also serves as a snapshot of the condition the property was in at the point of sale.

The home inspection generally takes place after a purchase agreement has been reached between a buyer and a seller. The home inspection generally takes between two and three hours. The inspector will inspect and evaluate all of the major components of your home, including gas lines, heating systems, electrical wiring and appliances. It may take longer if your home contains special features such as a swimming pool.
If a home inspector identifies a potential defect in a component of the property, he or she may call in a specialist, such as an electrician or professional roofer, to determine the true impact of the defect.
Depending on the size of the property, a home inspection typically costs $250 to $500. If you are conducting a real estate transaction and have questions about inspectors or any other aspect of the transaction, our attorneys are here to help.
