A radon test will be performed, along with a pest inspection and heating and air conditioning examination. You will then be presented with the written report of what has been found. Pursuant to the contract you may opt out of the purchase if the inspection shows serious problems with the house.

The contract will usually specify what is considered serious, such as costing over $500.00 to repair.
