Cities throughout California have "pre-sale requirements" you have to meet before you close escrow. Some requirements include inspections or paying a fee, and the specifics vary from city to city. If you're selling your house or thinking of doing so soon, it's important to be aware of your cities requirements. Some places have a very quick turn around time for scheduling inspections, but others can take weeks. Office closures due to coronavirus could make those wait times even longer. If you realize at the last minute that you need to fulfill a requirement to close escrow but the paperwork is going to take too long, you might find yourself having to pay extra for an expedited inspection.
