SCOPE OF INSPECTION
This report is CONFIDENTIAL, and is for the use and benefit of the client only. It is not intended to be for the benefit of or to be relied upon by any other buyer, seller, lender, title insurance company or third party. DO NOT DUPLICATE WITHOUT PERMISSION. Duplication of this report constitutes a violation of federal copyright laws.
All Components designated for inspection in the Washington State Standards of Practice (SOP) are inspected, except as may be noted in the comments of sections within this report. It is the goal of the inspection to put a home buyer in a better position to make a buying decision. All defects may not be identified during this inspection. Unexpected repairs should still be anticipated. As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home as designated in the SOP. When systems or components designated in the SOP are present but are not inspected, the reason(s) the item was not inspected is identified within the “Limitations” tab of this report. This report contains observations of those systems and components that, in the professional judgement of the inspector, are not functioning properly, significantly deficient, unsafe, or are near the end of their service lives and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.
We as home inspectors are not code inspectors. Codes change from county to county, and from year to year. Building codes can even vary from city to city, depending on differences in geography and climate, but they often follow similar standards and, if interested, they are accessible through your local government.
Please review the report in its entirety. It is ultimately up to your discretion to interpret its findings and to act accordingly. This report does not offer an opinion as to whom among the parties to this transaction should take responsibility for addressing any of these concerns. As with all aspects of your transaction, you should consult with your Realtor® for further advice regarding the contents of this report. Any repairs should be performed by the applicable licensed and bonded tradesman or qualified professional who will provide copies of all receipts, warranties and applicable permits for any repairs that are carried out. This inspection report shall not be considered a guarantee or warranty of any kind.
