In general, the inspection period contingency for buying a residential
property in Southern Arizona is 10 days. As a home buyer, it's your responsibility to investigate are material facts about the property during
this time frame. Your due diligence period begins once you have a fully
executed purchase contract. Even if, you agree to purchase the home
in an AS-IS condition, you should still hire a home inspector so you
have a good idea of what repairs are needed for the property.
Home inspections give you the opportunity to thoroughly inspect the home with a professional before you spend any of your hard-earned money to buy it. Because of this, inspections are one of the most common contingencies in purchase agreements. Make sure to review the Seller's Property Disclosure Statement with the home inspector to address any prior repairs made to the property. After inspection, the home inspector will email you a detailed report. The assessment will outline safety issues, any recommended repairs, and possibly further evaluation from a license contractor.
