What can I expect at the final inspection?

The property is expected to be in the same condition as when you first inspected the property allowing for fair wear and tear. If there is a hole in the wall when you signed the Contract, there is no obligation on the vendor to have it fixed and no obligation for them to spruce the place up before settlement, steam cleaning the carpets for example. They are however obligated to keep lawns at a legal height and remove rubbish and belongings prior to settlement.
