Sure, anyone can inspect your property…however that may not be a wise move.I am buying a Tampa property. Can my uncle inspect the property for me?

If your uncle is just a guy that knows a few things, you will probably not get a comprehensive overview of all the property deficiencies. Your uncle might not know what inspection forms (wind mitigation) are needed for a better insurance rate or that a 4- point inspection will be needed for your lender on an older home.

If your uncle is a professional inspector, that might be OK.  However, if you want to ask for concessions from the seller, the request will be more credible if the inspector was not related to you but rather an arms length transaction.
