Q. Are there any or inspections of a house in Davenport that is required by the city or the bank before a house can be sold in the city of Davenport? — Bob, Davenport

A. We contacted the city of Davenport to find out. Mike McGee, public works community services division manager, responded:

"There is no city ordinance that requires an inspection of any property, commercial or residential for a change of ownership. A lending institution or bank may at time require a third party (private) home inspection along with an appraisal prior to approving a loan."
