The buyer is responsible for all due diligence in the contract including any and all inspections. It is at the buyer's sole responsibility to obtain a licensed inspector to inspect the property for any defects. In the event that defects are discovered the buyer may, depending upon the circumstances, request that the seller performs certain repairs or adjust the contract for the cost of the repairs, but the seller is not under any obligation to do so. In the event the buyer and the seller are unable to reach terms of repairs then either party may terminate the contract. Of course there are exceptions to every rule and your ability to terminate the contract will be determined based on the circumstances surrounding your home inspection, the language contained in your contract and the language contained in any attorney review rider or addendums.
