Is a buyer entitled to a pre-closing inspection?

By Robert Hof

Most salespeople include a pre-closing visit or inspection in the real estate agreement. If it is not included, is the buyer entitled to a visit anyways? Read the attached article which points out that under the agreement, there may be a right of inspection before closing to determine whether substantial damage has occurred between the time the offer was signed and closing. But since you may have to go to court to enforce this right, it is best to provide for it in your agreement.
