(2) These standards of practice define the minimum requirements for a real estate inspection conducted on a one to four family unit that is substantially completed. Substantially completed means the stage of construction when a new building, addition, improvement, or alteration to an existing building can be occupied or used for its intended purpose . (3) For the purposes of these standards of practice a real estate inspection : (A) is a limited visual survey and basic performance evaluation of the systems and components of a building using normal controls that provides information regarding the general condition of a residence at the time of inspection; (B) is not intended to be a comprehensive investigation or exploratory probe to determine the cause or effect of deficiencies noted by the inspector; and (C) does not require the use of: (i) specialized equipment, including but not limited to : (I) thermal imaging equipment; (II) moisture meters; (III) gas or carbon monoxide detection equipment; (IV) environmental testing equipment and devices; (V) elevation determination devices; or (VI) ladders capable of reaching surfaces over one story above ground surfaces; or (ii) specialized procedures, including but not limited to: (I) environmental testing; (II) elevation measurement; (III) calculations; or (IV) any method employing destructive testing that damages otherwise sound materials or finishes. (4) These standards of practice do not prohibit an inspector from providing a higher level of inspection performance than required by these standards of practice or from inspecting components and systems in addition to those listed under the standards of practice. DEFINITIONS 22 TAC 535.227(b) (1) Accessible -In the reasonable judgment of the inspector, capable of being approached, entered, or viewed without: (A) hazard to the inspector; (B) having to climb over obstacles, moving furnishings or large, heavy, or fragile objects; (C) using specialized equipment or procedures; (D) disassembling items other than covers or panels intended to be removed for inspection; (E) damaging property, permanent construction or building finish; or (F) using a ladder for portions of the inspection other than the roof or attic space. (2) Chapter 1102 - Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1102. (3) Component - A part of a system. (4) Cosmetic - Related only to appearance or aesthetics, and not related to performance, operability, or water penetration. (5) Deficiency - In the reasonable judgment of the inspector, a condition that: (A) adversely and materially affects the performance of a system, or component; or (B) constitutes a hazard to life, limb, or property as specified by these standards of practice. (6) Deficient--Reported as having one or more deficiencies. (7) Inspect - To operate in normal ranges using ordinary controls at typical settings, look at and examine accessible systems or components and report observed deficiencies as specified by these standards of practice. (8) Performance - Achievement of an operation, function or configuration relative to accepted industry standard practices with consideration of age and normal wear and tear from ordinary use. (9) Report - To provide the inspector's opinions and findings on the standard inspection report form as required by 535.222 and 535.223 of this title.
