Who is present for a Home Inspection?

It is always preferred that the client is present for the Home Inspection, but they are not required to be there. It can be more informative to the client if they have questions to be answered on site.

Typically, a Home Inspector is contacted immediately after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. Before you sign, be sure there is an inspection clause in the sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional Home Inspection.
