Reasonable is a question even lawyers for the closing are contending with if the closing is delayed for days or even weeks.
What is within reason? In your case, anytime after 1PM is generally acceptable. When your home inspection is cancelled even though it is set within the reasonable time set by the seller once--there should be an extenuating circumstance to deem the cancellation reasonable.
Let us say there was indeed an extenuating circumstance, then this instance can be forgiven.
However, if the sellers cancel again the second inspection which is scheduled during the time that the sellers can accommodate, which is anytime after 1PM, then the sellers reasonable availability is unreasonably unavailable.
Are weekends included on the reasonable availability? If not, then the sellers have the right to refuse to cancel the home inspection. Has there been a miscommunication?
Anyway, as stated earlier by other professionals, there is a home inspection contingency date. If this can't be performed within the set period, just to be on the safe side, have your agent extend the contingency date.
I hope that you can get this done three days before the contingency date to give you some time to get the report especially the water test or any other tests that require laboratory work to get the results.
Home inspection is a very important step of your transaction. Home inspection periods usually run 10 to 17 days after acceptance of offer depending on your purchase agreement and what was negotiated.
You need to make sure to have your inspection done before that time is up. Reason being if you come to find out there is something wrong with the house and you really do not want to go ahead with the transaction, then you can have your escrow cancelled and get your initial deposit back. If it is passed that agreed inspection period you will not get your deposit back. That is the norm.
So, check your purchase agreement and see how many days you've been given for an inspection and then you can ask your agent to work this out for you that's what he or she is getting paid to do and I'm sure they'll be able to help.
Good luck to you! Remember Day Creek Realty is giving cash back to buyers and sellers pass it on :)
