The Truth In Sale of Housing inspection concentrates on the aspects of the home that can cause risk to the health or the life of the occupants and their loved ones. In some cities, it is a requirement that homes be inspected for hazardous material, unsafe buildings, delinquent electrical and leaking plumbing, amongst other items, prior to listing the home for sale. In some instances, the repair/s need to be completed prior to listing your home, but in other cases it simply needs to be disclosed.
This evaluation is different to the home inspection after a house goes under contract, which is requested and paid for by the purchaser.
This is not a requirement by all Minnesota Cities but the list below includes those that do want the inspection done. The links below will point you to the right information for your City. Most times the home needs to be inspected by an approved vendor of the City and the document needs to be displayed when showing your home for sale.
If you are not sure - please check with your Minnesota City or give us a call and we will happily help you establish if your home needs inspecting prior to listing.
