Looking to buy a house in El Monte, CA. Listing agent wishes to waive city inspection. How does this affect me as a buyer?

Asked by Jimmy, 91732 Mon Jan 16, 2012

I was under the impression that El Monte, CA requires city inspection, is this true? If so, how can the seller waive the city inspection if in fact it is required by the city? What does this mean? Need some clarification. Thank you.

The City of El Monte Municipal Code requires that any property that is for sale must be inspected and approved before escrow can close. For a property to be approved, any and all violations must be corrected before a certificate of occupancy will be issued to the escrow company. The City does offer a buyers affidavit, which permits the escrow to close once the buyer signs an agreement to make the necessary corrections. Please contact the City of El Monte Building Division if you have any questions regarding a property For Sale inspection at (626) 580-2050.
