Inspection Agreement

What is a home inspection?

  • A home inspection is a non-invasive visual inspection of the accessible areas to include the structure and components of a home

  • Identify defects within specific systems and components defined by the Standards of practice that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.

  • Find items that are not performing correctly or items that are unsafe.

  • If a problem or a symptom of a problem is found the home inspector will include a description of the problem in a written report and may recommend further evaluation.  

What should I NOT expect from a home inspection?

  • A home inspection is not protection against future failures. Components like air conditioners and Heat Systems can and will break down. A home inspection tells you the condition of the component at the time the component was inspected. .

  • A home inspection is not an appraisal that determines the value of a home. Nor will a home inspector tell you if you should buy this home or what to pay for this home.

  • A home inspection is not a code inspection, which verifies local building code compliance. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house. Homes built before code revisions are not obligated to comply with the code for homes built today. A home inspector thinks “Safety” not “Code” when performing a home inspection.

A signed inspection agreeement will be required before inspection.
