The purpose of this report is to reflect as accurately as possible the visible condition of the home at the time of the inspection.

Please read your entire inspection report carefully! Although the report has a summary that lists the most important considerations, the maintenance, materials used in the construction of this home, and appliance use and maintenance that should be read to gain an understanding of how to care for your home.

The summary is meant to organize the defects or important repairs needed in the home. Most anything can be repaired in a home, although some repairs can be very expensive to complete.

SCOPE OF THE INSPECTION:
RHA Inspection Services LLC will perform all inspections in compliance with the New York State Standards of Practice. As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home as designated in the New York State Standards of Practice. When systems or components designated in the New York State Standards of Practice are present but are not inspected, the reason(s) the item was not inspected is identified within the “Limitations” tab of this report. This report contains observations of those systems and components that, in the professional judgement of the inspector, are not functioning properly, significantly deficient, unsafe, or are near the end of their service lives. If the cause for the deficiency is not readily apparent, the suspected cause or reason why the system or component is at or near end of expected service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.


USE OF PHOTOS:
Your report includes many photographs. Some pictures are informational and of a general view, to help you understand where the inspector has been, what was looked at and the condition of the item or area at the time of the inspection. Some of the pictures may be of problem areas, these are to help you better understand what is documented in this report and to help you see areas or items that you normally would not see. Not all problem areas or conditions will be supported with photos. It is our goal to protect the privacy of others while conducting a thorough inspection. Photographs that may breach the privacy of other parties will be locally stored but not transmitted through digital means.


KEY DEFINITIONS:
The following definitions of comment descriptions represent this inspection report. Any recommendations by the inspector suggest a second opinion or further inspection by a qualified contractor. All costs associated with further inspection fees and repair or replacement of item, component or unit should be considered before you purchase the property.

1. Apparent Condition: Systems and components are rated as follows:

SATISFACTORY (Sat.) - Indicates the component is functionally consistent with its original purpose but may show signs of normal wear and tear and deterioration.

MARGINAL (Marg.) - Indicates the component may require repair or replacement anytime within five years.

POOR - Indicates the component may require repair or replacement now or in the very near future.

MAJOR CONCERNS - A system or component that is considered significantly deficient, inoperable or is unsafe.

SAFETY HAZARD - Denotes a condition that is unsafe and in need of prompt attention.

2. Installed systems and components: structural components; exterior; interior; roofing; plumbing; electrical; heating; central air-conditioning (weather permitting); insulation and ventilation.


3. Readily accessible systems and components: only those systems and components where Inspector is not required to remove personal items, furniture, equipment, soil, snow, or other items which obstruct access or visibility.


4. Any component not listed as being deficient in some manner is assumed to be satisfactory.
This categorization is the opinion of the inspector and is based on what was observed at the time of inspection. It is not intended to imply that items documented in any one category are not in need of correction. Maintenance items or latent defects left unrepaired can soon become significant defects. It should be considered very likely there will be other issues you personally may consider deficient, and you should add these as desired. There may also be defects that you feel belong in a different category, and again, you should feel free to consider the importance you believe they hold and act accordingly.


Please review the report in its entirety. It is up to your discretion to interpret its findings and to act accordingly. This report does not offer an opinion as to whom among the parties to this transaction should take responsibility for addressing any of these concerns. As with all aspects of your transaction, you should consult with your Realtor® and or agent for further advice regarding the contents of this report. Any repairs should be performed by the applicable licensed and bonded tradesman or qualified professional who will provide copies of all receipts, warranties and applicable permits for any repairs that are carried out.

For agents viewing the summary may be a more efficient use of your time! On the right side of the screen is the PDF button that allow you to view or print the summary only. On the top edge is the "Agent Tools" button that opens a window you can easily copy/paste from. Thank you for all the hard work that you put into this transaction! We appreciate all of your hard work into this deal!

An inspector is to be a "Generalist" in that the job is to identify and report potential issues rather than diagnose the specific cause or repair items. For this reason, you will find that it is often recommended to seek further evaluation by a qualified professional such as an Electrical, Plumbing, or Roofing contractor. 

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. Observations and Recommendations are organized into three categories by level of severity:

1) Minor / Maintenance Issues - Primarily comprised of small cosmetic items and simple Handyman or Do-It-Yourself maintenance items. These observations 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 or informational data. 

2) Moderate Recommendations - Most items typically fall into this category. These observations may require a qualified contractor to evaluate further and repair or replace but the cost is somewhat reasonable. 

3) Significant and/or Safety Concerns - This category is comprised of immediate safety concerns or items that could represent a significant expense to repair/replace. 

This is meant to be an Honest, Impartial, Third-Party Assessment.

General: About Thermal Imaging

Note: A Thermal Imaging camera may be used as a means of evaluating certain suspect issues or systems. Any anomalies found are always verified by other means such as a moisture meter. Moisture must be present for infrared thermography to locate its existence. During dry times a leak may still be present but undetectable if materials have no moisture present. Thermal Imaging is not X-ray vision. It cannot see through walls and cannot detect mold.

Interior, Doors & Windows:

The following items are not included in this inspection: security, intercom and sound systems; communications wiring; central vacuum systems; elevators and stair lifts; cosmetic deficiencies such as nail-pops, scuff marks, dents, dings, blemishes or issues due to normal wear and tear in wall, floor and ceiling surfaces and coverings, or in equipment; deficiencies relating to interior decorating; low voltage and gas lighting systems. Any comments made regarding these items are as a courtesy only. Note that the inspector does not evaluate any areas or items which require moving stored items, furnishings, debris, equipment, floor coverings, insulation or similar materials. The inspector does not test for asbestos, lead, radon, mold, hazardous waste, urea formaldehyde urethane, or any other toxic substance. Some items such as window, drawer, cabinet door or closet door operability are tested on a sampled basis. The client should be aware that paint may obscure wall and ceiling defects, floor coverings may obscure floor defects, and furnishings may obscure wall, floor and floor covering defects. If furnishings were present during the inspection, recommend a full evaluation of walls, floors and ceilings that were previously obscured when possible. Carpeting and flooring, when installed over concrete slabs, may conceal moisture. If dampness wicks through a slab and is hidden by floor coverings that moisture can result in unhygienic conditions, odors or problems that will only be discovered when/if the flooring is removed. Determining the cause and/or source of odors is not within the scope of this inspection.

Electrical components: Restricted views

Due to stored household items/furniture some switches and receptacles may not have been visible/tested at time of inspection.

Note that the inspector does not determine if support posts, columns, beams, joists, studs, trusses, etc. are of adequate size, spanning or spacing.

The inspector does not guarantee or warrant that water will not accumulate in the basement in the future. Access to the basement during all seasons and during prolonged periods of all types of weather conditions (e.g. heavy rain, melting snow) would be needed to do so. The inspector does not determine the adequacy of basement floor or stairwell drains, or determines if such drains are clear or clogged.


Foundations:

Regarding foundations, some amount of cracking is normal in concrete slabs and foundation walls due to shrinkage and drying. Note that the inspector does not determine the adequacy of seismic reinforcement.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding. 

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help.

Any comments made regarding these items are as a courtesy only. Note that the inspector does not provide an estimate of remaining life on heating or cooling system components, does not determine if heating or cooling systems are appropriately sized, does not test coolant pressure, or perform any evaluations that require a pilot light to be lit, a shut-off valve to be operated, a circuit breaker to be turned "on" or a serviceman's or oil emergency switch to be operated. It is beyond the scope of this inspection to determine if furnace heat exchangers are intact and free of leaks. Condensation pans and drain lines may clog or leak at any time and should be monitored while in operation in the future. Where buildings contain furnishings or stored items, the inspector may not be able to verify that a heat source is present in all "live able" rooms (e.g. bedrooms, kitchens and living/dining rooms).

Two Main Panels were identified. The older panel being located in the washer room in the lower level of the split. The electrical panel was then transferred to the garage quite possibly during the time when the 1-car garage was constructed onto the house; (circa 1975). The latest and newest main panel box is 100 amp service based upon the main breaker located in the breaker box.

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 an 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, 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 7 - 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.
