Understanding the difference between “due diligence” and “right to request repairs”.
A standard Georgia Association of REALTORS® (GAR) purchase and sales agreement describes:
“Purpose of Due Diligence Period. During the Due Diligence Period, Buyer shall determine whether or not to exercise Buyer's option to proceed or not proceed with the purchase of the Property. If Buyer has concerns with the Property, Buyer may during the Due Diligence Period seek to negotiate an amendment to this Agreement to address such concerns.”
During the due "diligence period" a buyer may walk away from a transaction for “any reason or for no reason” without consequence as long as the walk-away occurs during the due diligence period and supporting paper work is properly delivered.
An inspector is not privy to what occurs after an inspection is is delivered however having knowledge of various possibilities can be beneficial.
There is no right to request repairs in the due diligence clause however during the due diligence period a buyer may seek to negotiate an amendment to address concerns.
