We encourage Realtors to keep in mind the importance of a private inspection — not only because it protects their clients, but also because it is a strong argument against overreaching municipal inspections.
For example, when Falls Township, Bucks County, dropped its U&O inspection requirement last year, the township manager explained it this way:
"The level of inspection that home inspectors do privately is far, far greater than what the township's program was providing."
Bottom line: Don't count on a municipal code inspection to catch everything that will be important to your buyers.
