A Buyers Agent should always advise of an inspection report as part of your subject clause. The goal is to ensure the buyer has full knowledge of results of the results of the inspection, and if necessary, clarification from the inspector or any other qualified person.

The RealEstate Council has recommended that the Buyer pay for their own inspection and also choose the inspector
