Not sure what you mean by seller feed back. When a buyer has a home inspection done that is a report that is generated for them by the inspector and they have sole ownership. In your contract there should be a repair request date in which they have to request any and all repairs that they would like for the seller to take care of and at that time they may or may not submit any or all of the information in the report. However you may request a copy of the summry that is generaly given to the buyer from the home inspector to show supporting documentation of any repair request. If the buyer chooses not to make any repair request then they at no time have to reveal to you what is in the home inspection report.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

There should be a date in your contract telling you when ALL inspections will be completed.

The Buyers Agent should get the home inspection report within 24-48 hrs of it being completed. Once all the inspections are in (pest, radon, water, etc.), the Buyers Agent works with the buyer to determine what repairs to request. The Buyer's Agent will then present the repair request to your agent to review with you. You may or may not see the actual inspection report.

Also, there may be no request made, if everything is working in the home!

Talk to you agent!

Are you working with a Realtor (your listing agent who market your property), do you have a real estate attorney who looks over your contract and deals with any inspection issues?
Then if that would be the case you have your Agent and your Attorney to contact...

If not when you signed the contract there should be a section about Attorney approval and Inspection in it
A/I in short, it should say that the buyer has the right to have an attorney approval and an inspection within
.......... business days after date of contract. So look in your contract. Each state may have different kinds of contracts, so looking in detail at your contract in your state is important.

Your Attorney will be able to connect with the buyers attorney to get the response from the buyer/buyers attorney based on the inspection results! Attorneys can always extend that period of time, if the buyer needs
estimates for repairs, or the two parties cannot immediately agree on how to deal with issues arising from the inspect. results.... But at one point your attorney should have heard from the other attorney, even if they have no problems with the inspection and are going ahead with the contract...

If you want to give me more details I gladly respond again. It truly depends on your contract...
Talk to you soon.

All states are different, but there should be a time limit for responses in your contract.
