We do, but only with the written authorization of the buyer we are representing since normally the buyer is the party who contracted for the inspection and paid for it, and normally a request for repairs, or price adjustment will accompany that communication.

With the buyers' permission and most buyers allow us to do so - in fact, there's a check-box on our Repair Request indicating so.

That said, once those inspection reports go to the sellers, they now know what is wrong with their homes and if our deal falls through, also need to Disclose those issues OR repair them. SO, they may as well go ahead and make the requested repairs!!

"Buyer shall provide Seller and Broker(s), upon receipt, at no cost, copies of all inspection reports concerning the Premises obtained by Buyer."

is verbiage in our (AZ) RPC.
Our CRE contracts (industry standard forms and company PSAs from various sources) always have similar verbiage - not always 'at no cost' but it's basically the same--any discovery gets turned over.

Surprised there isn't similar verbiage in other state/association forms.

Some contracts require it... although that can be deleted.

   You may need your Buyer's permission, if he/she paid for that inspection.  Same applies to appraisals, surveys, etc.

     I am having a pre-sale Wood Destroying Organisms Inspection and a pre-sale Home Inspection done on a house in a few weeks.   Copies of those inspections (when they are clear) will go in the MLS Associated Documents.  

  But there will be a full DISCLAIMER that  that those copies are provided for information purposes only, they are not a warranty or guaranty of any kind, they are not certified to any prospective purchaser or their agent, nor are they provided to dissuade a prospective purchaser from getting an additional inspection of their own

Only do it if you request repairs based upon the inspection.  As a listing agent I won't even accept a repair request that isn't accompanied by the inspection report, if repairs (or credits) are asked for based upon the report.

It's discussed with the buyer.  They pay for it, they decide.  On a practical level, if the buyer is asking for repairs, credits or a price reduction based on the findings of an inspection report, it doesn't make a lot of sense not to include a copy of the report.

It is customary to provide a copy of the inspection report along with a Request for Repair or Credit.  If the buyer's don't move forward with the transaction due to their findings often that copy of the report would not be provided.  I would definitely want a copy of that report if the buyer requests anything.

I don't want it, don't want to see it don't even want to see a summary.

Why? Because the buyer's crazy inspector could create an obligation to disclose or refute. I care not to penalize my seller because of decisions the buyer makes.

The buyer is free to make repair requests, and that is ALL I want to see.

But buyer agents can't help themselves. They send the non-sense anyway.

In Middle TN we are not to give any inspection to the seller without it being requested by the seller or agent. The listing agent and seller will then have knowledge of all that is wrong and will need to fix it or disclose it to the next buyer.

in CA AVID form filled out by buyer agent is required to close. However, it does not serve anything or carrying much weight.  100% of sales I have handled since 2005 is AS IS sale. Wanting compensation is rare as many are on the waiting list.

It doesn't belong to you; buyers would have to agree. I usually share the portions that need addressing e.g. if there is something buyers need done, I provide the text from the inspection that speaks to the item or issue in question.

If buyer is under inspection and attorney review and is able to negotiate repairs then of course use the report. Typically this is written by attorney representing the buyer in our state.
