In Charleston SC, if the listing agent requests to see the full inspection report, the buyer's agent usually asks the buyer, who paid for the inspection, for permission to send the report to the listing agent. I have heard of times (other agents; not me) when the buyer gets angry with their agent for giving the report to the listing agent and seller if permission was not previously granted. However, I have also learned that in Bluffton SC, the inspector automatically sends the inspection report to both the buyer's agent and the listing agent. Based on Charleston's protocol, I found that odd. And then there is the issue of: does the listing really want the full report, from the standpoint of full disclosure?
From reading in other Trulia posts, I have learned that standard real estate procedure is truly regional. What do y'all think and what is the norm in your area?
