General Limitations - Grading & Drainage

Limited inspection of the performance of lot drainage and grading. Limited due to the conditions existing at the time of the inspection only and evidence of past problems. I cannot guarantee the performance as conditions constantly change. Heavy rain or other weather conditions may reveal issues that were not visible or foreseen at the time of inspection. Furthermore, items such as leakage in downspouts and gutter systems are impossible to detect during dry weather. The inspection of the grading and drainage performance in relation to moisture infiltration through foundation walls, therefore, is limited to the visible conditions at the time of inspection, and evidence of past problems.

Appurtenance: Detached Structure - Shed

Note: This property appeared to have a detached structure (shed) and is excluded from this inspection. Comments in this report related to detached structure(s) are made as a courtesy only and are not meant to be a substitute for a full evaluation. Consider ordering an inspection on any detached structures and identify any defects (e.g. leaks, damaged, and/or electrical issues) and recommend repair(s) if necessary.

Consider having a qualified plumber verify that a backflow prevention device is installed per standard building practices to prevent cross-contamination of potable water. Recommend that a qualified specialist evaluate the irrigation system for other defects (e.g. leaks, damaged or malfunctioning sprinkler heads) and repair if necessary.

Electrical Limitations

The following items are not included in this inspection: generator systems, transfer switches, surge suppressors, inaccessible or concealed wiring; underground utilities and systems; low-voltage lighting or lighting on timers or sensors. Any comments made regarding these items are as a courtesy only. Note that the inspector does not determine the adequacy of grounding or bonding, if this system has adequate capacity for the client's specific or anticipated needs, or if this system has any reserve capacity for additions or expansion. The inspector does not operate circuit breakers as part of the inspection and does not install or change light bulbs. The inspector does not evaluate every wall switch or receptacle but instead tests a representative number of them per various standards of practice. When furnishings, stored items or child-protective caps are present some receptacles are usually inaccessible and are not tested; these are excluded from this inspection. Receptacles that are not of standard 110-volt configuration, including 240-volt dryer receptacles, are not tested and are excluded. The functionality of, the power source for and placement of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms is not determined as part of this inspection. Upon taking occupancy, proper operating and placement of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms should be verified, and batteries should be changed. These devices have a limited lifespan and should be replaced every 10 years. The inspector attempts to locate and evaluate all main and sub-panels. However, panels are often concealed. If panels are found after the inspection, a qualified electrician should evaluate and repair if necessary. The inspector attempts to determine the overall electrical service size, but such estimates are not guaranteed because the overall capacity may be diminished by lesser-rated components in the system. Any repairs recommended should be made by a licensed electrician.

Cable / Satellite / Telephone / Inter Communication / Alarm Stystems

Note: If present, cable, satellite, telephone, inter communication and alarm systems are not inspected. Evaluating these systems are beyond the scope of a property inspection. Their condition is unknown, and they are excluded from this inspection. Recommend that a qualified specialist review these systems and make repairs if necessary.

Service Conductor: Service Entance - Observation Limitations

Because the service entrance conductors were hidden behind service panel components, the inspector was unable to view markings in order to determine the service entrance conductor amperage rating and type.  Confirmation of correct service entrance conductors sizing will require the services of a qualified electrical contractor.
