No. In every contract there is the duty of good faith. If the buyer fails to have an inspection done they cannot use it as a reason to cancel the contract. The seller can keep the escrow or sue for whatever remedies are in the contract for a breach.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
