I always like to be present so I can ask, while the buyer is there, 'What does a correction look like?"
Too often a drama in the report is resolved by reducing a pvc run by 3 inches and in the case of my last episode of 'inspector gone goofy' reseating the plug into the receptacle.
Best of success to you,

the home buying process.
Also, keep in mind, inspectors have their requirements for filling out an inspection report: there are some items they are not supposed to put in the written report but can always talk to you about them if you are present.
This is also your opportunity to ask questions about the home's features, structure and systems.
We have designed a questionair for buyers to ask their inspectors during the home inspection, let me know if you would like a copy of it.

Hope it goes well.
Negotiate for the seller to repair the issue. If they refuse think about raising the price to include the cost of repairs. The borrowed money is much cheeper than credit cards or cash.
Best of Luck, Stephen
