1. Definitions and Scope
1.1.  A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property (as delineated below), performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.  The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.
I.The home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.
II.The home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.
1.2.  A material defect is a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, 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.
1.3.  A home inspection report shall identify, in written format, defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.  Inspection reports may include additional comments and recommendations.

2. Limitations, Exceptions & Exclusions
2.1. Limitations:
I.An inspection is not technically exhaustive.
II.An inspection will not identify concealed or latent defects.
III.An inspection will not deal with aesthetic concerns, or what could be deemed matters of taste, cosmetic defects, etc.
IV.An inspection will not determine the suitability of the property for any use.
V.An inspection does not determine the market value of the property or its marketability.
VI.An inspection does not determine the insurability of the property.
VII.An inspection does not determine the advisability or inadvisability of the purchase of the inspected property.
VIII.An inspection does not determine the life expectancy of the property or any components or systems therein.
IX.An inspection does not include items not permanently installed.
X.This Standards of Practice applies to properties with four or fewer residential units and their attached garages and carports.
2.2. Exclusions:
I. The inspector is not required to determine:
A.property boundary lines or encroachments.
B.the condition of any component or system that is not readily accessible.
C.the service life expectancy of any component or system.
D.the size, capacity, BTU, performance or efficiency of any component or system.
