Home Inspections – When buying a house, the home inspection is an important part of the process. It’s kind of like taking a peek under the hood of a used car before buying it; you want to ensure that everything is in working order so you don’t drive off the lot with a lemon. The same goes for buying a home. The last thing any buyer wants is to close on a home only to encounter unseen issues upon moving in. Click here for more information about Home Inspections.
Lead Paint – Under Massachusetts and federal law, owners and real estate agents must comply with Property Transfer Lead Paint Notification requirements when a prospective buyer or tenant with an option to buy is about to purchase a home built before 1978.
