This is a continuation of a series: 10 Common Myths Shared by Homebuyers.* See myth #9 here.
A buyer might assume that since the contract is contingent on the home inspection, it can be mistaken that the seller is to fix anything and everything that comes up on it. South Carolina's Association of Realtor's contract specifically states that the seller is only responsible for repairs to make the roof free of leaks, the house structurally sound, and to address electrically, plumbing, and HVAC issues. Many inspectors volunteer their subjective opinions rather than just reporting the facts based on their observations. The results of the inspection will prompt renegotiations. An experience realtor will help you evaluate the inspection report and point you to contractors that can further evaluate the claim and then will help you negotiate repairs.
