SECTION 5-20.8-4


§ 5-20.8-4 Buyer's rights to inspection.

(a) Every contract for the purchase and sale of real estate shall provide that a potential purchaser or potential purchasers shall be permitted a ten (10) day period, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, to conduct inspections of the property and any structures thereon before the purchaser(s) becomes obligated under the contract to purchase. The parties have the right to mutually agree upon a different period of time; provided, a potential purchaser may waive this right to inspection in writing.

(b) Failure to include the provision required in subsection (a) of this section in the purchase and sale agreement for real estate does not create any defect in title.

(c) Failure to include in the purchase and sale agreement the provision required in subsection (a) of this section shall entitle the purchaser to void the purchase and sale agreement by providing notice, in writing, to the seller prior to the transfer of the title at a closing.
