Legal Q&A | Does the seller have to schedule inspections if the buyer is obtaining a VA loan?
QUESTION: A buyer’s agent contacted me today and requested that my seller arrange for the termite inspection to be performed. The buyer is obtaining a VA loan, and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (“DVA”) has required that a termite inspection be performed at the seller’s expense. Does Form 2A4-T (“FHA/VA Financing Addendum”) require the seller to schedule this inspection and ensure that it is done?
