The first thing in order is the home inspection by a licensed home inspector, then repair requests are sent to the listing agent, who in turn presents it to his/her seller.
In order for all repairs to be done according to the sales contract, they must be done by a licensed contractor specific to that repair. The proof of the repairs are sent to me, the agent, and copies sent to the Title Company and to the buyer and seller. At the final walk through, the buyer has the right for a re-inspection by the home inspector. I strongly recommend this the buyer. Hope this helps.
Some items you can probably check yourself - rotted fence, leaking faucet, broken door kobs. You can ask of recent receipt, you can also request a reinspection from the same inspection compay for the items on the list to be repaired.
Final walk through is also very important - to enuser no new problems are introduced after the contingencies are removed.
, especially if the repaires are significant enough.
