Each home inspector might have different "Standards of Practice" that dictate what exactly they will inspect, but in general you can expect most home inspectors to check the following major systems and components:
Home inspections are visual inspections that educate homebuyers and their agents on the current condition of major systems and components. There is no standard for "pass" or "fail", but more a matter of what you're willing to negotiate for and accept in a new home.
