(Centsable Inspection)
A Manchester-by-the-Sea MA home buyer should receive a brochure, Home Inspectors Consumer Fact Sheet, at the time of the signing of the first written contract to purchase. A standard Massachusetts home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units. It should be understood that there are certain risks inherent in the purchase of property and a home inspection is inherently limited in its scope and depth. The information gained from home inspection conforming to the Massachusetts Home Inspector Standards of Practice may reduce some of those risks, but the home inspection is not intended to provide the client with protection from all of the risks involved.

Houses are filled with memories, the reason why Mrs. Closson lived in her mansion until the day that she died.  Mrs. Closson was our landlord when my husband and I first married.  She owned an estate in Manchester-By-Sea, Massachusetts near Singing Beach in the exclusive section of exclusive Manchester known as Smith's Point.  On her grounds was a guest house.  Long ago, the house was probably the servant's quarters.  When I met Mrs. Closson, she was in her 80's.  My husband had known her from just living in Manchester.  When he told her of his upcoming marriage, she asked him if we would like to rent her guest house.  The couple that was living there had put a deposit on a house in Beverly.  Lloyd brought me to see the house and to meet Mrs. Closson.  We had tea in the main mansion.  M...

I recently heard about an unfortunate situation on Boston’s north shore, in Manchester. You can find more about it at the site of WCVB-tv. Here’s what happened: some unfortunate homeowners purchased a house that was most likely built on an old landfill. They tried to sell their house and potential buyers balked at the last minute. After learning why, the owners had their soil tested. Chemicals galore were lurking in their back yard. Lead, arsenic, mercury. Not exactly healthy. The worst part? Mom was weeks away from giving birth. Who’s responsible? Surely the builders knew what type of land they were building on, right? Maybe they had no idea - could have just been fulfilling a contract. Surely the town knew the history of the land that was to be built upon, right? It turns out they did...
