Just going to share my experience with home inspectors and give you some information on conflicts of interest.
Real estate Agencies make recommendations for these home inspectors, there is a huge conflict of interest because the inspector if he says too much and the sale does not go through - well you guessed it - he is off the list of recommended inspectors. Make sure your inspector is not on their list of recommended inspectors. Be with the Inspector when they check out the home !!!!!
Some inspectors put such a disclaimer on their contract that it is worded like entertainment purposes only - you might even find that in the very fine print on some - make sure you really read that contract.
I had an inspector for my current home. Well I should have done the inspection myself but thought a pro would be more able and knowledgeable about structure etc..) and also a contract where the home must pass inspection can have certain ramifications if I did it myself.
The home passed his inspection. I had pictures of all of the appliances and dates of manufacture.
The Furnace did not work when we moved in a week later (it was cold outside too) - I had to fix it.
The Garage door practically fell on top of me as I opened it from the inside - it fell out of the tracks.
All of the 3 way and 4 way light circuits - I had to fix.
The Dryer breaker I had to replace.
The refrigerator I had to fix the ice maker and water dispenser.
The drains had to be repaired - I had to repair the sinks as well.
The windows would not open.
And a littany of other things that had to be taken care of. It was the biggest waste of money I had made.
Further the Inspector passed the home - but a Real Estate Agent chosen by the Bank to inspect had an issue with a ceiling leak.
So I would advise to follow the advice and insight of others on this forum as well.
