Alright, you have a conditional purchase contract in place on a home and one of the conditions is for the satifactory review of the property through a home inspection.
One of the mistakes that some buyers make is assuming when their licensed home inspector finds issues with a home (and they always do) that they have an opportunity to renegotiate the purchase price with the seller prior to releasing their condition.
A mistake? YES!
The home inspection condition provides the buyer two alternatives: a) to accept a home, blemishes and all, and release their condition, or b) to not release their condition because of the blemishes identified in the home inspection (and thereby nullifying the purchase contract). There is no "option c" that automatically permits the renegotiation of the price.
Occasionally, if some issues are found that it is believed the seller is completely unaware of, then it might be worth trying to get the seller to lower their purchase price...
