4 EYES HOME INSPECTIONS LLC is pleased to submit the enclosed report. This report is a professional opinion based on a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas and components of the building. This report is neither an engineering inspection nor an exhaustive technical evaluation. An engineering inspection or a technical evaluation of this nature would cost many times more and take days, if not weeks, to complete.
This inspection was performed in accordance with the Standards of Practice for Performing a General Home Inspection of The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors(InterNACHI). These can be viewed here. http://www.nachi.org/sop.htm
A home inspection is a non invasive, visual inspection of all readily accessible areas of the home including exterior components, roof covering, structure, site conditions that affect the structure, interior components, electrical system, plumbing system, and the HVAC system. Home Inspectors are "generalists". Home Inspectors are not acting as experts in any craft or trade, and are conducting what is essentially a "visual inspection" and reporting an opinion. Our position is to discover basic visible defects with the home and either suggest action or recommend further evaluation by a specialist in the appropriate field. Safety recommendations will also be included. In many cases "generalists" cannot diagnose conditions with major components or systems, due to the lack of specific licenses. Only individuals who carry the proper credentials can make proper assessments. A home inspection is not a code compliance inspection, zoning inspection, or an ADA inspection. It is not a prediction of future conditions, and it is not a guarantee or warranty of any kind. Everything noted on this report was only at the "Time of the Inspection". While we can reduce your risk of purchasing a home, we cannot eliminate it, nor can we assume it. Even the most comprehensive inspection cannot be expected to reveal every condition you may consider significant to ownership. We strongly recommend that a certified, licensed and insured contractor complete all repairs and/or further evaluate components and deficiencies mentioned in this report.
The intent of the report is to inform you the buyer of the general condition and safety concerns of the home and what you may expect as far as ongoing maintenance and repairs so you can make a more informed buying decision. All homes will have defects and your home inspection report can be a powerful tool in the negotiations process. This report is only supplemental to the seller's disclosure and should never be taken as a replacement to your pre-closing or walk-through inspection. Conditions can change from this Inspection date to your closing date. We recommend you operate all mechanicals , operate faucets, all appliances ,open all windows, etc, at your walk-through inspection or prior to closing. Review any areas that might have been concealed or obstructed from the inspection due to furniture or personal belongings from previous owners. Also review any areas that were noted as having prior moisture problems or leaks.
