Do Sellers Get a Copy of the Inspection Report?
When gathering up information required to schedule an inspection, I often ask if the client is working with a realtor, and if so, would they like me to forward a copy of the report to their realtor? Most of the time, the answer is something to the effect of “yes, duh”, because the client understands that the realtor is your advisor through the home-buying/selling process and ensuring they have a critical piece of information such as a home inspection report seems important.
What happens with the report after it has been given to the client and most likely their realtor is completely up to them. In most instances, the buyer’s agent will create a “punch-list” of repairs to be performed, and send the list of repairs along with a copy of the report to the listing agent to negotiate. The listing agent will likely try to negotiate down the punch-list so that only the really important things are taken care of, or alternatively, work with the seller to reduce the sale price and have the buyer take care of the items on the list themselves. The latter is more common in sellers pressed for time.
At the end of the day, its your report, and you do what you wish with it.
