No. Ultimately, it is the clients decision whether or not to buy the house. We have no knowledge of the value of the property, the financial condition of the client, or any number of many other very important factors that must be considered along with the findings of the Home Inspection. The Home Inspection should be viewed as one more “piece of the puzzle”. Each individual client knows what they are willing to take on regarding repairs, renovation, upgrade, etc..
With that having been stated, don’t think you’ll be whistling in the wind if you ask your Inspector about the property itself…..
You can expect that the Home Inspector may offer advice concerning maintenance of the various systems and components of the property…and there may be advice offered as to what kinds of contractors or other professionals might be best suited for the further assessment and/or correction of any significant conditions that might have been discovered during the Home Inspection. Of course, all advice will be offered on an “opinion-only” basis within the parameters of the Inspectors experience and technical background.
