Thank you for choosing INSPEX Home Inspections to perform your home inspection!
The inspection itself and the inspection report comply with the requirements of the State of Nevada Standards of Practice. These Standards of Practice define the scope of a home inspection. Clients sometimes assume that a home inspection will include many things that are beyond the scope. We encourage you to read the Standards of Practice so that you clearly understand what things are included in the home inspection and report. We have attached them to this report and linked them in your inspection agreement for your convenience.
This Inspection Report is based on a visual, non-invasive, snapshot-in-time inspection of readily accessible installed systems and components, for a fee, and designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards of Practice that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. While every effort is made to identify and report all current or potential issues, please understand that there are simply areas that are not visible or accessible such as within the wall structure or slab, hidden components of appliances, areas blocked by personal property/storage, etc.
The general home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed and deemed material on the date of the inspection. Home inspectors cannot predict future conditions, and as such, we cannot be responsible for things that are concealed or occur after the inspection.
A material defect is a specific issue with a system or component that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, that is not in normal working order, and/or that poses an unreasonable risk to people. The fact that a system or component is near, at, or beyond the end of its normal, useful life is not, in itself, a material defect.
An inspector is considered to be a "Generalist" in that the job is to identify and report potential issues rather than diagnose the specific cause of repair items or the method or materials for repair. For this reason, you will find that it is sometimes recommended to seek further evaluation by a qualified professional.
The report includes Informational data on various components of the home, Limitations that affected the ability to inspect certain items/areas, and Recommendations for items that require immediate or future attention.
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. A Summary Report can be created should you choose to view a report without these minor items.
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 will 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.
