1 - General Information / Overview

General: General: Scope of Inspection

4 PAR HOME INSPECTIONS performs all inspections in compliance with the Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).  We inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home as designated in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. When systems or components designated in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice are present but are not inspected, the reason(s) the item was not inspected is identified within the Limitations tab of this report. This home inspection is not a compliance inspection or certification of any kind. It simply is an inspection of the condition of the home at the time of the inspection. This inspection does not cover items or conditions that may be only discovered by invasive methods. No removal of materials or dismantling of systems shall be performed under this inspection. This is not a technically exhaustive inspection. 

General: General: Using This Report - Scope & Limitations

The Inspection Is Not A Pass/Fail

A home does not "Pass" or "Fail" a General Home inspection. The goal is to provide useful, accurate information about the condition of the home.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions about either the report or the property. 


Using The Report Summary

The summary is meant to organize the defects or important repairs needed in the home. Most anything can be repaired in a home, although some repairs can be very expensive to complete. Generally, normal maintenance issues are left out of the summary unless they would lead to water leaks, expensive repairs, or unreasonable risk to people or property if not completed in a timely manner. Roof maintenance issues will be included in the summary because of the severe damage that may be caused by the neglect of roof maintenance.


Explanation of Categories and Ratings:

Below are the categorizations used in this home home inspection report.  The categorizations assigned are the professional opinion of the home inspector and based on what was observed at the time of inspection.  The categorizations should not be construed as to mean that items designated as "Minor Defects" or "Recommendations" do not need repairs or replacement. The recommendation in the text of the comment is important in addition to the categorization. Due to your opinions or personal experience you may feel defects belong in a different category, and you should feel free to consider the importance you believe they hold when reviewing the home inspection report.  

I = Inspected:  This means the system or component was inspected and found to be functioning properly, or in acceptable condition at the time of the inspection. No further comment is necessary but whenever possible additional information about materials used in the construction and how to care for or maintain the home is provided.

NI = Not Inspected:  This indicates that at least part of a system or component could not be inspected or inspected thoroughly.

NP = Not Present:   This indicates that a system or component was not present at the time of inspection. If the system or component should have been present, a comment will follow.

O = Observation:  This indicates that an action is recommended. Observations are color coded to indicate the importance of the observation.

BLUE - MINOR CONCERN:   Maintenance items, DIY items, or recommended updates will fall into this category. These concerns will ultimately lead to Moderate Concerns and Major Concerns if left neglected for extended periods of time. These Concerns may be more straightforward to remedy

ORANGE - MODERATE CONCERN:  Most items will fall into this category. Concerns that inevitably lead to, or directly cause (if not addressed in a timely manner) adverse impact on the condition of the home, or unreasonable risk (Unsafe) to people or property. These concerns typically require further evaluation or may be more complicated to remedy.

RED - MAJOR CONCERN:   The item, component or system poses a safety concern to occupants in or around the home. Some listed concerns will be considered acceptable for the time period of construction but pose a current risk.  The item, component or system is Not functioning as intended, or needs further evaluation by a specialized qualified licensed contractor or can cause damage to the structure. Items, components or units that can be repaired to satisfactory condition may not need replacement.


THE HOME INSPECTION IS NOT A WARRANTY

The home inspection report is  NOT intended to be considered as a  GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE CONDITIONS OF THE PROPERTY, INCLUDING THE ITEMS AND SYSTEMS INSPECTED, AND IT SHOULD NOT BE RELIED ON AS SUCH.
