Question: Should a typical home inspection come with a warranty?
Top Answer (70% of 208 votes): No, home inspection does not come with a warranty.

Answer: Yes, it should always come with a warranty
Explanation: A home inspection is based upon the condition of the home at that time. Not all areas may be able to be inspected. This is why further inspections required in concerned areas of the home should be performed by qualified professionals in that field. I provide a 100% guarantee with each inspection. If you are not satisfied with my service, I will refund your inspection price no questions asked.

If they’re not happy within the first 90 days after buying it, InterNACHI will buy back the home at full price.

Morrow Inspection Services, PLLC
Answer: No, home inspection does not come with a warranty
Explanation: An inspector is hired to find defects. At InFocus Inspection we believe that the warranty products have too much fine print and offer nothing further than to increase the price of the service. If your inspector finds the defects there should be no need to warranty the systems they inspected. If you are shopping for an inspector that offers these warranties, please read the fine print and research the product they are offering before considering it as a positive selling point.

KJ Wood Home Inspections
ProMatcher
Answer: No, home inspection does not come with a warranty
Explanation: While some inspectors offer a warranty on their inspections it is not specifically required. Your home inspection is a snapshot of the conditions of the home on the day of the inspection and is not a warranty against future change or failure of components of the home. NACHI Certified Professional Inspectors may offer to include the NACHI "We'll Buy Your Home" Guarantee, which is the best in the industry to my knowledge. If the NACHI certified inspector participating in the program misses something during the inspection, NACHI will buy the home back from the buyer at full sales price. That's an amazing guarantee.
