SCOPE

This inspection is a non-invasive examination of readily accessible systems and components as outlined in the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors(ASHI) or your specific state standards. In compliance, our reports are subject to the Definitions, Scope, Limitations, Exceptions, and Exclusions as outlined in the Standards of Practice. A copy of the Standards of Practice may be obtained from your inspector.  

In general, home inspections include a visual examination of readily accessible systems and components to help identify material defects - as they exist at the time of the inspection. This is not a technically exhaustive inspection and will not necessarily list all minor home maintenance or repair items. Latent, inaccessible, or concealed defects are excluded from this inspection. Inspectors do not move furniture, appliances, personal items, or other materials that may limit his/her inspection.  We do not report on cosmetic or aesthetic issues. Unless otherwise stated, this is not a code inspection. We did not test for environmental hazards or the presence of any potentially harmful substance.  

Use of Reports

If the inspection is performed in connection with the sale, exchange or transfer of the property, copies of the report may be provided to the principals in the transaction and their agents. However, the report is for your sole information and benefit. We do not intend for anyone but the person(s) listed on this report to benefit, directly or indirectly, from this agreement and inspection report. Our contractual relationship is only to the person(s) purchasing our report/service.

Inspection Agreement

BY ACCEPTANCE OF OUR INSPECTION REPORT, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE TERMS OF OUR INSPECTION AGREEMENT. A copy of this agreement was made available immediately after scheduling your inspection or prior to the beginning of your inspection. In addition, a copy is included on our website with your final inspection report. You should review the liability limitations and terms of the agreement carefully before accepting your inspection report. Should you discover a defect for which we may be liable to you, you must notify us and give us a reasonable opportunity to re-inspect the property before you repair the defect.  

We understand the serious nature of real estate transactions and attempt to take reasonable actions to provide value and protect our clients. A part of many real estate transactions are contingencies limiting the time available for follow up inspections, repair work, or further inquiries. We are not responsible for any investigations that are not completed prior to the end of the contingency period.

Report Definitions

The following definitions of comment descriptions represent this inspection report:


                Inspected:  The item was visually observed and appears to be functioning as intended.

                Not Inspected:  The item was not inspected (reason for non-inspection should be noted).

                Not Present:  The item was not found or is not present.

                Action Items:  The item should be monitored and repair/replacement should be considered. (Includes definitions, helpful tips, recommended upgrades, conditions requiring repair due to normal wear,  and conditions that have not significantly affected usability or function - but may if left unattended).

COMMENT CATEGORIES

SAFETY / HEALTH:   Any defect, component or system that has a possibility of inflicting personal injury or affecting the health and well being of anyone in a family including children or the elderly.  Although some of these items may be grandfathered in under current building code due to period of time the home was built therefore not requiring that the change or repair be completed.  It is important that you are aware of the items and the current code revisions.  All safety defects have a high priority of repair.


MAJOR DEFECT:   A list of items that if corrected could likely have estimated repair costs over $500. Many of the items should be addressed to avoid more costly repairs in the future. There are still other minor defects listed that are necessary to correct even though repair costs are less. All defects should be repaired.


SERVICE / REPAIR:   Includes any system, device, appliance or condition that requires action to return it to normal condition or operation. Generally estimated repair costs range between $50.00 and $500.00

We cannot predict when or if a roof might leak in the future.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the structure included a visual examination of the exposed, readily accessible portions of the structure. These items were examined for visible defects, excessive wear, and general condition. Many structural components are inaccessible because they are buried below grade or are behind finished surfaces. Therefore, much of the inspection was performed by looking for visible symptoms of movement, damage and deterioration. Where there are no symptoms, conditions requiring further review or repair may go undetected and identification is not possible without destructive testing. We make no representations as to the internal conditions or stability of soils, concrete footings and foundations, except as exhibited by their performance. We cannot predict when or if foundations or roofs might leak in the future.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the interior included a visual examination for structural and safety deficiencies and the interior of the home was scanned with an infrared camera. When systems are functional and prior to conducting the scan, the HVAC system(s) are operated to increase the temperature differential between the interior and exterior of the home. This aids in the detection of anomalies such as water intrusion, missing insulation, etc. Infrared thermal imaging conducted at the time of the inspection did not detect any significant defects unless otherwise detailed further on in the report. Also note that only a representative sample of accessible components was inspected.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the heating and cooling system included a visual examination of the system's major components to determine defects, excessive wear, and general state of repair. Weather permitting, our inspection of a heating or cooling system includes activating it via the thermostat and checking for appropriate temperature response. Our inspection does not include disassembly of the furnace; therefore heat exchangers are not included in the scope of this inspection. Ceiling fans are not typically inspected as they are not within the scope of the inspection.
