The inspection contingency deadline comes up fast
By default, California real estate sale contracts provide 17 days from after the contract has been ratified for buyers to complete inspections and make any necessary requests for repair.
You, the buyer, have a right to control inspections of the property
The buyer is in charge of any inspections conducted on the property and has a right to speak with the inspector and ask any questions they may have during the inspection. If a seller has made it difficult to schedule an inspection of the home or is personally interfering in the inspection, the buyer may have a right to an extension of time to conduct these inspections.
Requests for repair must be submitted before the inspection deadline
The 17-day deadline to make any requests for repairs comes up fast. Nevertheless, this is the date by which you must make your requests to repair items on the property you’re seeking to purchase.
The seller may not honor your request
If you request a repair, the seller has the right to ignore, deny, or agree to the request, or attempt to negotiate a compromise.
You have to take action by the inspection deadline
As a buyer, you must either rescind any requests and contingencies on the sale, request additional time to complete more inspections or repairs, or cancel the transaction if requests for repair are ignored or denied.
You may well be able to retain your earnest money deposit if you cancel the sale
If your requests for repairs are refused by the seller, you are likely entitled to a refund of your earnest money on deposit. Even if you cancel the sale after an unsuccessful negotiation of the repairs you requested, rather than an outright refusal to make repairs, a real estate lawyer can assist you in getting back the deposit funds you’ve provided to the buyer so far.
Repairs must be completed before closing
If you and the seller do agree that certain repairs be made to the property, these repairs must be completed by five days before the scheduled close of escrow.
If you are in need of skilled and knowledgeable legal counsel for a real estate transaction or disputed sale in Southern California, contact the San Diego real estate litigation attorney Jon Alan Enochs for a consultation, at 619-421-3956. (Refured from SDAR)
Ask your agent to verify that the Seller has completed their Statement of Identity. This is where the "Skeletons come out of the closet." You don’t want to invest Time and Money to have the Escrow fail due to some unseen Liability pop-up. They may owe more than the home’s value, which means that they may have no money left over to sue for.

Some buyers assume a home inspection covers the solar system, but home inspectors will not perform a Residential Solar Inspection©. Home inspectors do not offer to perform Residential Solar Inspections© because they do not have the required expertise to evaluate a solar system.
If you have put in an offer to buy a house with solar, it is important that not only should you have a home inspection, but also that you have a Residential Solar Inspection© performed by The Solar Detective. 858-519-8415 call them
Realtors or home inspectors do not evaluate this. Solar Inspector will.
Solar panels (like them or not) are part of the home buying processes in San Diego, CA. It is essential to know before you enter any obligations or RLA-RPA contracts. Whether the homeowner purchases the system outright; in that case, you need to know about the system's maintenance, capacity, and longevity. If leased, you will need to get approved by the leasing company, and you will want to know about easements, if any, to access the panels. Call me if you have questions, or better yet call The Solar Detective directly at 858-519-8415
A link to the San Diego.Gov website. Details Short Term (under 30 days) Rental Rules and Permits for your property.
Curious where all the SHORT-Term rentals are located? The “Nice Neighbor” organization is a group of San Diego stakeholders trying to identify the Bad Actors: Party Houses, Nose, unlicensed or neighborhood disruptors. You can also add to their list if you know of other bad actors In Shor Term Rentals. (Take the information for what it is)
As soon as possible, get a quote for “Homeowners” or Fire Insurance the first few days after accepting the offer. Most new homeowners wait; it’s a mistake.
This is oven overlooked by other Real Estate Agents; it’s a nasty little surprise 6-12 months after you purchase a home in San Diego County. Supplemental tax is the difference between the newly assessed sold property amount and the old property value that the original owner paid tax on. The difference is divided by the remaining day of the tax collection year fiscal year. (June 30th) that sum is multiplied by the tax rate. (1 t0 1.2%) The video explains this in good detail.
