It certainly would have been better to have received their advice prior to this but much will depend on the terms of the contract that you signed. I am assuming you signed a standard Florida As-Is contract so look at line 195 on Page 4 and the number of days you have agreed to complete the inspection will be shown. If the space was left blank it defaults to 15 days and you also need to be sure there are no other addendum's, clauses, riders, etc. that may take precedence. For instance, you will have a bank addendum on any REO property and you will see those documents often times change the inspection period to 7 or 10 days. The standard contract is nothing more than a free option on the property and the buyer has no obligation to proceed. If 15 days have lapsed you have lost your rights that protected you under this clause and there is no difference if you inspect it in person, have someone inspect it on your behalf or choooe not to inspect it al all.
I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,
