My ASHI-approved Home Inspector had a list in the 'kit' I got. Do you have an attorney? Did you have a home inspection??? If you're paying a 30-year mortgage, figure out how much you'll pay over 30 years for your home. Then, compare that cost to what it will cost to have a Real Estate Attorney and a Home Inspection. Then ask yourself, "Is a few hundred $$$ too much $$$ to pay for peace-of-mine???" The bank has an attorney look over the papers EVERY time they approve a mortgage. AND, they do this all the time! You're doing this probably once or twice in your life. (I'm assuming you have no attorney or had an inspection. I'm sorry; it's a peeve of mine ...)

Here are a couple of links that will be of use BUT don't forget to get an attorney and an ASHI-approved inspector. I usually hear about the 'problems' when it's too late, and either an attorney or inspector would have caught the 'problem'. Know that you CAN have an inspection on a NEW home too. Usually, the inspectors make 4+ visits to the house while it's being built. They'll do an inspection on a completed home too.

Free Pre-Settlement Walkthrough Check-List - (It's MORE than one page, and is 'Continued' at the bottom),
Doing A Walk-Through I - (This may be for NEW homes so check it out.)
Doing A Walk Through II - (This may be for NEW homes too but again, check it out.)

My best to ya and hope this helps. This advice is FREE and it comes from the heart.
