Home Inspections in Illinois

Real Estate Attorney Serving Cook, Will, and DuPage Counties

Home inspections are a crucial part of a residential real estate transaction. Real estate contracts in the state of Illinois typically contain a home inspection provision. Home inspection provisions give buyers a certain amount of time from the date a seller accepts an offer to conduct an inspection. Buyers do not have to have a professional home inspection, but it is highly recommended that an experience home inspector is used. Home inspectors will look at and analyze a home to help buyers make more informed decisions about their investments. Examples of the things home inspectors will look at include:

  • The structure of a home or building, including foundations
  • Exterior features, including chimneys, decks, and drainage conditions
  • Roofs
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical components and wiring
  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Insulations and ventilation in attics or basements
  • The interior of a home and possibly appliances included in the sale

Depending on the outcome of a home inspection, you may be able to request repairs or a reimbursement for repairs that will be credited at closing. An attorney can better help you understand your available options with making repair or credit requests and amending contracts according to a home inspection.

Sellers & Buyers

As a seller, you want to be prepared for home inspections. This may mean performing an inspection of your own before you list your home for sale, so as to avoid potential problems later on. By finding potential problems that could affect your sale, you can fix them before a buyer makes an offer and conducts their own inspection.

As a buyer, you want to ensure that you choose a seasoned home inspector. Purchasing real estate is a large investment, and it is essential that you are aware of any problems that may lead to larger, more costly problems down the road. You can learn more about selecting a home inspector on our website.
