Can I schedule the inspector to return for the final walkthrough?
Yes, most companies will gladly do this for a reduced fee. Indeed, this may be a wise thing to do if certain ‘suspicious’ areas of the property were not fully accessible due to furniture or stored items. If some major repair was required, you may wish to have the inspector check it before you proceed. For new construction, some systems may not have been completely installed and tested at the first inspection. In both cases, if the second home inspection is caused by the negligence or delay on the part of the seller, you may ask that they pay the inspection fee.
