I don't know in what state this is occurring but do you have a contract with your realtor to represent you ? Otherwise, I think the realtor represents the seller since that is who pays them.

If I was the seller, I wouldn't allow your electrician to look at something in my house. If you really want the house, make an offer with no inspection contingency at a slightly higher price than the last contract.

I was happy to pay the inspector and let the contract terminate on the property I was buying because there were a couple of things that happened along the way that made me have no trust in the sellers(I was beginning to lean toward BSC). The final issue was a damaged window that was listed in the property disclosure but no one seemed to know the brand of window(not their realtor who had owned a unit one building over) nor the sellers. There's pretty much only one place in town that sells windows. Way too hinky for me - I asked for about double what they offered for the repair(which was replace, restain and ensure there was no additional damage). They declined and I let it go. I considered the inspection money very well spent and will move on.
