AAR owns these forms and as such I cannot display them on my website. You can go get the document if you want to see it ahead of time from
then click “Residential Buyer Inspection Notice (BINSR)”
I am not a lawyer and this article should not be construed as legal advice. If you want legal advice, you should get it from a lawyer.
This is the inspection notice given at the end of the inspection period. It is called Buyer Inspection Notice Seller Response because the notice and the seller response are on the same document just to make things easier, rather than back and forth each time with separate documents.
1) the date of the purchase contract, not the current date
Buyer Inspections and Investigations Completed
This section states that the buyer has been advised to do inspection of anything they could possible want, and that all inspections are complete.
Buyer has 3 options
1) Accept the premises
They’ll take it as-is
2) Premises rejected
They’re not having it
3) I’ll take it if you fix these things
And then they list the things they want you to fix.
In this section they list all the things they want you to fix. Sometimes they use plain English like
Fix broken dishwasher – or – Replace cracked roof tiles
other times they reference the inspection report:
“Fix disconnected gas flue (6.2)” – which as you can see in the inspection report they are required to provide you, along with the picture showing the problem.
It’s pretty easy to understand what they are asking for.
Other times, you receive sections that look like this:
1.1 Fix or repair
1.6 Change out
or even just
4.2, 4.7, 4.9, 5.1
At this point, you would have to go find the inspection report and make a list of everything they want, and then go from there.
Assuming the buyer is giving the seller a chance to fix some things, then the seller has 3 options:
And then you list the things you are willing to fix.
If seller has not agreed all items approved:
(basically if you chose options 2 or 3)
Now, since this form only really gives the buyer the option to accept your things you’ve said you will fix or else cancel the contract, it is easier to call the agent and then haggle back and forth over the phone or email and then once you’ve agreed to what you will fix, then write it on this form and send it back and hopefully they accept.
