Just found out the house we are hoping to buy, recently had an inspection by a previous buyer. This inspection was dated Dec 2012. There is nothing in the report that scares me away since I'm aware of the issues older homes may have, but - can I ask any questions through my realtor like a specific question about the a/c system? I'm curious why the other buyer did not go through with the deal - is this something my realtor can tell me if she is aware of the reason? Maybe it didnt pass appraisal or they couldng get financed. Mainly I want to know if struggled with appraiasal.

+1 to the above. It's worth the peace of mind alone to have your own inspection done. One inspector may find something that another totally missed, and any amount of time since the last one could have led to altogether new issues.
We purchased a home from a relocation company who had had their own inspection done prior to taking control of the home. Their report indicated that the roof had 4-6 years left. Our own inspector was able to show us that this was simply not realistic, and in turn we were able to get several thousand more off of the purchase price to go towards replacing it. Always worth it to have your own professional give it a thorough evaluation!

I have a copy of the actual inspection that was just done 8weeks ago.Very detailed Inspection purchased by the person trying to buy it before me. I was thinking about hiring an actual A/C service company to check out the A/C unit but Mainly my Question on here was if I was allowed to ask questions to the owner. I'd like to know what their thoughts are on this reports findings of the A/C unit, before we decide if we want an actual A/C repair company to check it out for us.
I did email my agent and she said she is going to ask. From there we'll decide if we need specialists on any items since it seems an inspector gives more of a visual and cant reallyl tell you what could be wrong if something is found not to be in working order.

Went ahead and scheduled an A/c Repair company to check the cooling & heating system out for us. I sure hope its fine - we love this house and I'm sure if it needs replacing we'll still want the house - but I guess we'll request it be repaired or hopefull be brave enough to get something reduced.
