I am in the process of buying a house in Indio, California
In the event my offer is accepted, what type of inspections do I need to do. I am actually living in the UK (the property will be a short stay rental investment). To better understand what is typical in the US, I purchased the NOLO guide to buying a house in California.
It lists a number of inspections including:
General Inspection (Covers the roof, plumbing, electrical and heating systems, foundation, and drainage Note: it is only a visual inspection. By law, the inspectors cannot inspect anything that is hidden by walls or by large furniture.)
Pest Control Looks for termites and other pests
Are all these inspections needed? It seems a little excessive.
