The due diligence period is a certain amount of time you have to do all the research on the home so that there are no surprises. Surprise! The dog you have — the HOA does not allow them. That fence you wanted to put in, is not allowed and they only allow tan fences, but you wanted white. You are not allowed to park your RV or large truck in the driveway. More surprises can be what the school system is like, your commute time to work in the times you usually commute to work, inspections on the home, what your neighbors are like, what the area is like?

Home Inspections and Doing your Due Diligence While Inspecting the Property
When you are doing the home inspections you need to know what current issues exists with the home. In the sellers disclosure you signed when you got under contract, it indicates all the details on what the seller knows is wrong with the house. If there are major issues that pop up in the inspection, you can definitely ask the seller to:
- Fix the issue
- Reduce sales price
- Give you a credit and you can fix it yourself instead
