Using This Report
Thank you for choosing Highpoint Inspections, LLC!
A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of the property, designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Oklahoma Standards of practice and the InterNACHI Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable, in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises. Environmental issues are outside the scope of a home inspection. This includes issues such as mold, lead-based paint, radon, asbestos, meth, rot, pests, and wood-destroying organisms.
The Inspection is not Pass/Fail
A property does not "Pass" or "Fail" a General Home inspection. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about either the report or the property. The goal of this inspection report is not to make a purchase recommendation, but to provide you with useful, accurate information that will be helpful in making an informed purchase decision.
Repairs, Evaluations and Corrections
For your protection, and that of others, all repairs, corrections, or specialist evaluations should be performed by qualified contractors or licensed professionals. Safety hazards or poorly performed work can continue to be a problem, or even be made worse when home sellers try to save money by hiring inexpensive, unqualified workmen, or by doing work themselves.
Explanation of Ratings
IN = Inspected. This means the system or component was inspected and found to be functioning properly unless a recommendation is mentioned.
LI = Limitations. This indicates that at least part of a system or component could not be inspected or inspected as thoroughly as I would like.
R= Recommendations. This indicates that an action is recommended.
Recommendations are organized into three categories by level of severity:
1) Upgrades and/or Minor Maintenance Recommendations - These recommendations are more informational in nature and represent more of a future to-do list rather than something you might use as a negotiation or seller-repair item.
2) Moderate Recommendations - Most items typically fall into this category. These recommendations may require a qualified contractor to evaluate further and repair or replace, but the cost is somewhat reasonable. These recommendations may also include maintenance items that if left unattended could result in.
3) Significant and/or Safety Concerns - This category is composed of immediate safety concerns and/or items that could represent a significant expense to repair/replace.
