Be sure to get copies of all receipts for repairs from the seller, as those should be warrantied for at least a short period of time after completion.

If my buyer wishes to have their inspector return to make sure the repairs were done, that is what we do.
The final walk through is usually reserved to make sure that there were no hidden defects that could not be seen while the sellers items were still in the home. In addition to the other details already listed below.
Your question is a very good one.....
The inspection of the basic condition of the home is one easily achieved by the buyer in most cases. On the other hand there are issues that a buyer may have no background in and would therefore be unable to render an accurate opinion on these important areas. Concerns involving the roof, electrical issues, plumbing, HVAC etc. may best be left to a professional for their input.
We have had great success with matters of this nature by requestion the individual that did the home inspection to be available for the brief 15-20 minute walk through. The have an understanding of the issues at hand and are generally receptive when a small fee is involved.
Best wishes with your purcahse....remember, better safe than sorry!
