Patti Roblyer, Home Seller in Montezuma, KS

On a place in the country, where you have your own well and septic system, is it up to the seller to pay for the inspection? This is in Kansas?

Depends on what is written and agreed to in the purchase agreement.

A buyer should ALWAYS conduct and pay for their own inspections, do not take someone elses results you want a true independant assessment and inspection

In our area, all inspections, repairs & who pays for what are negotiable. When a house is a HUD home or bank-owned, the house usually is sold "as is," & the buyer can pay for his own inspections for his peace of mind. However, I've worked in a few bank-owned sales where the bank has offered to do
some of the repairs suggested by an inspector. This is very rare.

In our area, the buyer pays for the inspections and the sellers pays for the repairs if needed.

It is however the contract is agreed on. Buyer can offer to pay any and all inspections or just for certain ones or the Buyer can ask Seller to pay for any/all or certain inspections. Sometimes when property is bank owned or sold as is - the Seller won't pay for any inspections but the buyer can and should for his/her own information pay for inspections. So to sum it up inspections like the closing date, the purchase price, the earnest money may all be negotiable.

Inspection are always negotiable as to who pays for them. In most cases the seller is asked to pay for these 2 types of inspections.
