Don't Over-ask for Repairs!

Inspection Requests-Tip.png

Simply sending over an entire inspection report and saying “fix everything” is not only a little lazy, but it’s counter-productive. Asking for too much will overwhelm the seller and they will be more inclined to say no to everything. You don’t have the right, legally, to ask for certain things anyway, like cosmetic updates or replacement of functioning but old equipment, so why include those? Pick out the 5-10 things most important to you that you are actually entitled to ask for per your contract, and have your lawyer put together a concise letter with your requests. You’ll be much more likely to get a cooperative seller that way!
