What About Arranging for Inspections and Getting Repairs Done

That's what the agent does. No agent? Then it's up to you or the seller. It's a good idea to get an initial understanding between yourself and the seller on the delegation of responsibilities. The last thing you want is to think that the seller is doing something while, in reality, he or she thinks you're handling it.

Your fee-for-service agent, your attorney, or your escrow officer can come up with a good list of things that need to be done in order to close escrow. Then delegate who will do what. But be sure to call the seller occasionally to see that he or she is doing her part. You don't want to come to the end of escrow only to discover that the seller hasn't even started with termite repair work.
