Thank you for choosing People's Choice Home Inspections, LLC ( PCHI ) to inspect your home! Please carefully read your entire Inspection Report. It is ultimately up to your discretion to interpret its findings and to act accordingly. If you have any questions throughout the closing process don't hesitate to ask. This report is based on an inspection of the visible portion of the structure at the time of the inspection with a focus on safety and function, not on current building or municipality codes. As with all aspects of your transaction, you should consult with your Realtor® 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. Any and all evaluations or recommendations made by ( PCHI ) should be carried out prior to closing. 

This Inspection Report is based on a visual, non-intrusive inspection.  While every effort is made to identify and report all current or potential issues with a home, please understand that there are simply areas that cannot be seen- such as within the wall structure, etc.  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 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/MonitorPrimarily 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 RecommendationsMost 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 composed of immediate safety concerns or items that could represent a significant expense to repair/replace.  

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.

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.

The following areas and descriptions are not included in the scope of this inspection: • Structural integrity, • Geological stability or ground condition of site, • System design problems or functional adequacy, operational capacity, quality or suitability for particular use of items inspected, • Fireplace and flue draft, • Capacity for the garbage disposal to grind food or the dishwasher to clean properly, • Cosmetic items including, but not limited to minor scratches, scrapes, dents, cracks, stains, soiled or faded surfaces,  • Wells or well pumps, • Septic systems, • Cisterns • Sewer lines beyond the foundation wall and not visible, • Fountains, • Electronic air cleaners or filters, • Water quality or volume, • Water conditioning systems, • Environmental hazards, • Active or passive solar systems, • Security systems, • Detached buildings or equipment unless specifically included and paid for in the agreement, • Central vacuum systems, • Wall or window mounted air conditioning systems, • Home warranty and component warranties.

This report is not a warranty.

Receipt of this report by any purchasers of this property other than the party(ies) identified on the cover page of this report is not authorized by the inspector. The inspector strongly advises against any reliance on this report by such party(ies). We recommend that you retain a qualified home inspector to provide you with your own inspection and report on this property. Liability under this report is limited to the party identified on the cover page of this report. The Home Inspection and the Inspection Report do not constitute and shall not be considered to be a warranty, either expressed or implied, concerning the present or future condition of the Property, the presence or absence of latent or hidden defects that are not reasonably ascertainable in a competently performed home inspection, or the remaining useful life of any system or component of the property. This report is not binding unless the pre-inspection agreement has been signed by the client and returned to People's Choice Home Inspections, LLC along with payment of the inspection fee.

This home inspection is not an inspection for mold. Mold can be present in any home. Mold cannot grow unless there is excess moisture. The key to mold control is moisture control. While this inspection attempts to detect high moisture conditions that can lead to mold growth, be advised that mold can grow in hidden areas which are beyond the scope of this inspection. If mold is a concern to you, you should obtain a further evaluation by a mold specialist prior to the end of the inspection contingency. Recommended reading - A brief guide to mold and moisture

THE INSPECTION DID NOT INCLUDE ANALYSIS OR TESTING OF ANY ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH HAZARDS. No tests were conducted to determine the presence of airborne particles such as asbestos, noxious gases such as radon, formaldehyde, toxic, carcinogenic or malodorous substances or other conditions of air quality that may have been present; nor conditions which may cause the above. No representations were made as to the existence or possible condition of the lead paint, abandoned wells, private sewage systems, or underground fuel storage tanks. There were no representations as to any above or below ground pollutants, contaminants, or hazardous wastes. The quality of drinking water was excluded from this inspection.

THE INSPECTION DID NOT INCLUDE ANALYSIS OR TESTING FOR CONCEALED WOOD DECAY, MOLD, MILDEW OR FUNGI GROWTH (UNLESS OTHERWISE PURCHASED SEPARATE FROM HOME INSPECTION).

THE INSPECTION DID NOT INCLUDE ANALYSIS OR TESTING FOR INSECTS AND VERMIN.

Orientation- For the sake of this inspection the front of the home will be considered as the portion of the home facing the road. References to the "left" or "right" of the home should be construed as standing in the front yard and facing the front of the home.

This is meant to be an Honest, Impartial, Third-Party assessment.  Oftentimes, in the mind of a buyer, minor items are given too much weight and significant items are under-appreciated.  That being said, I would be more than happy to discuss anything in more detail.  Please reach out if you have any questions or need further explanation on anything identified in this report.

Category description

Listed below is a description of the Categories used throughout the report to help understand the severity of an item.  Any items list in the below categories may be based on the inspectors opinion.  These categories are not designed to be considered as an enforceable repair or responsibility of the current homeowner, but designed to inform the current client of the current condition of the property and structure.  They may be used in negotiations between real estate professionals. 

Minor / Maintenance / Monitor =  The item, component, or system while perhaps is functioning as intended may be in need of minor repair, service, or maintenance; is showing wear or deterioration that could result in an adverse condition at some point in the future; or consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency, and/or safety.  Items that fall into this category frequently be addressed by a homeowner or Licensed Handyman and are considered to be routine homeowner maintenance (DIY) or recommended upgrades.   


Deficiencies =  The item, component, or system while perhaps functioning as intended is in need of moderate repair, service, is showing signs of wear or deterioration that could result is an adverse condition at some point in the future; consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency and/or safety. Items falling into this category can frequently be addressed by a licensed handyman or qualified contractor of trade and are not considered routine maintenance or DIY items.  


Safety & Immediate Attention =  The item, component, or system poses a safety concern to occupants in or around the home.  Some listed concerns may have been considered acceptable for the time of the structures construction, but pose a current risk.

Overview
A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection.It is a visual only evaluation of the conditions of the systems and accessible components of the home designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Florida State Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Conditions can and will change after the inspection over time. Future conditions or component failure can not be foreseen or reported on. Components that are not readily accessible can not be inspected.Issues that are considered as cosmetic are not addressed in this report. (Holes, stains, scratches, unevenness, missing trim, paint and finish flaws or odors). It is not the intent of this report to make the house new again.Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable, in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises.
General Recommendations : Recommend obtaining from the Home owner

We recommend obtaining from the Owner (and Public Records) all available Information, User's Guides/Owner's Manuals, Receipts, Warranties, Permits, Insurance Claims, and Warranty Transferability & Fees regarding the Repairs, Upgrades, and Components of the Home & Lot.

Attic

Not all areas of the attic were traversed.  These areas were unsafe to traverse or blocked by stored items, insulation, low rafters, or mechanical equipment.  The Inspector makes every point to try and see as much as possible, however some areas could not be safely inspected.

We normally conduct our typical roof inspection by walking on the roof's surface in what we call the "random walk" methodology. This method of inspection is not intended to cover every square inch of the roof's surface, nor will it. Further we could not recreate the route of a random walk even if we tried to. We do arrive at an overall impression of the roof's condition developed during this random walk inspection and extrapolate it to the entire roof's surface.
If any discrepancies are in fact identified, it is recommended that to accurately determined the scope of the actual discrepancies, as well as any cost of correction, you consult with a licensed roofing contractor. Not all roof will be walked, dimension, slope, weather, etc may allow the roof to be accessed.

>80 PSI

The water supply pressure is greater than 80 psi. Pressures above 80 psi may void warranties for some appliances such as water heaters or washing machines. Flexible supply lines to washing machines are more likely to burst with higher pressures. Typically the pressure cannot be regulated at the water meter. Recommend having a qualified plumber evaluate and make modifications to reduce the pressure below 80 psi. Installing a pressure reducing valve on the main service pipe is a common solution to this problem. If one exists, then it should be adjusted for lower pressures.

All 3-prong outlets that were tested were appropriately grounded. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) devices have been provided in some areas of the home. These devices are extremely valuable, as they offer an extra level of shock protection. All GFCI's that were tested responded properly. Dedicated 220 volt circuits have been provided for all 220 volt appliances within the home. All visible wiring within the home is copper. This is a good quality electrical conductor.

Sub-Panel not present.

Branch Wiring: Branch Circuit Limitation

Home branch circuit wiring consists of wiring distributing electricity to devices such as switches, receptacles, and appliances. Most conductors are hidden behind floor, wall and ceiling coverings and cannot be evaluated by the inspector. The Inspector does not remove cover plates and inspection of branch wiring is limited to proper response to testing of switches and a representative number of electrical receptacles.

Recommend that home buyers replace or clean HVAC filters upon taking occupancy depending on the type of filters installed. Regardless of the type, recommend checking filters monthly in the future and replacing or cleaning them as necessary. How frequently they need replacing or cleaning depends on the type and quality of the filter, how the system is configured (e.g. always on vs. "Auto"), and on environmental factors (e.g. pets, smoking, frequency of house cleaning, number of occupants, the season.

The range can tip forward, and no anti-tip bracket appears to be installed. This is a safety hazard since the range may tip forward when weight is applied to the open door, such as when a small child climbs on it, or if heavy objects are dropped on it. Anti-tip brackets have been sold with all free standing ranges since 1985. An anti-tip bracket should be installed to eliminate this safety hazard.

Foil-Plastic Duct

The clothes dryer is equipped with a vinyl or foil, accordion-type, flexible exhaust duct. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission considers these types of ducts to be unsafe, and a fire hazard. These types of ducts can trap lint and are susceptible to kinks or crushing, which can greatly reduce the air flow. This duct should be replaced with a rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct, and by a qualified contractor if necessary. Most clothes dryer manufacturers specify the use of a rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct.

- proper location;

- proper system configuration;

- component condition

- exterior cabinet condition;

- fuel supply configuration and condition;

- combustion exhaust venting;

- air distribution components;

- proper condensation discharge; and

- temperature/pressure relief valve and discharge pipe: presence, condition, and configuration.
