If I find that the house needs major repair after the closing, who is responsible?

It is the buyer's obligation to perform all due diligence with regard to inspections before closing of title and within the inspection period of time.  If after the closing of title you discover defects it is highly unlikely that you will be able to sue the seller for compensation.  You may have a cause of action against the inspector but this will depend upon the contract that you have with the inspector for the inspector's services.  However, you will probably have very limited ability to sue the seller or the inspector.
