Thank you for choosing Obsessed Inspections for your home inspection! The inspection performed to provide data for this report was visual in nature only, and non-invasive. The purpose of this report is to reflect as accurately as possible the visible condition of the home at the time of the inspection. This inspection is not a guarantee or warranty of any kind, but is an inspection for system and major accessible component defects and safety hazards. The Inspection is not pass/fail. Therefore, a property does not "Pass" or "Fail" a general home inspection. Please contact me with any questions about either the report or the property.
The goal of this inspection report is not to make a purchase recommendation, but to provide you with useful, accurate information that will be helpful in making an informed purchase decision. Please read your entire inspection report carefully. Although the report has a summary that lists the most important considerations, the body of the report also contains important information. There is important information about home 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. Repairs, evaluations and corrections for your protection and that of others, all repairs, corrections, or specialist evaluations should be performed by qualified contractors or licensed professionals not the seller. Safety hazards or poorly performed work can continue to be a problem, or even be made worse when unqualified workmen complete the work. Contractors providing repairs should provide legible documentation in the form of work orders and/or receipts. If repairs are made in this way, then there's generally no need for a follow-up inspection. Additionally, it may be better to negotiate a lower price on your home and have repairs made by contractors you choose rather than the seller making repairs as cheaply as possible.
We are here to help! If you have questions about either the contents of this report, or about the home, please do not hesitate to contact us for help, regardless of how much time has passed since your home inspection. We will be happy to answer your questions to the best of our ability.

For Agents Viewing the summary, it may be a more efficient use of your time to use the PDF button on the right side that will allow you to view or print the summary only. On the top right edge is the "Report Tools" button that opens a window you can easily copy/paste or repair request list from. Thank you for all the hard work that you put into this transaction! We appreciate you!
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 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 electrician, plumber, hvac tech or roofing contractor.
