I’m a recently licensed home inspector in NY and I also do some real estate investing. In NY, home inspectors are not allowed to perform an inspection on any property that they have a financial interest in.
It seems to me that I can walk a property and bring defects to the seller’s attention without breaking the law being that a home inspection consists of the inspection and a report. I would not be writing a report.
Does anyone have any suggestions regarding the wording for a purchase offer when I decline a home inspection Contingency and intend to base the purchase on my personal observations?
In the past, I have stated that I would not be basing the purchase on a home inspection; but that I would be walking the property myself and evaluation the condition. This was before I was licensed.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
