General Intro:

Dear customer,

Thank you for choosing Renovee Inspection Services, LLC to perform your home inspection.
An earnest effort was made on your behalf to discover visible deficiencies. This Inspection Report is an opinion report based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions. Hidden or concealed defects cannot be included. This Report is not intended to reflect the value of the property such as an appraisal report would. No warranty is either expressed or implied. This report is neither an insurance policy nor a warranty service with regards to the property. This Inspection Report should not determine the advisability or inadvisability of the purchase of the inspected property.

This inspection was performed in accordance with the current Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), visit InterNACHI website at http://www.nachi.org/sop.htm. The Standards contain certain and very important limitations, exceptions, and exclusions to the inspection.

The summary is not a complete listing of all the findings in the report. Please review all of the pages of the report as the summary alone does not explain all the issues. For your safety and liability, all repairs should be done by a qualified and licensed trade or professional, example: Licensed General Contractor, Plumber and/or Electrician. We strongly recommend that you obtain at least two written estimates for cost of repairs from a contractor/ tradesmen specializing in their field. We also recommend obtaining a copy of all receipts, warranties and permits for the work done.

The General Home Inspection is not a building code-compliance inspection, but a visual inspection for safety and system defects. The Inspection Report may comment on and identify as problems systems, components and/or conditions which may violate building codes, but although safety defects and building code violations may coincide at the time of the inspection, confirmation of compliance with any building code or identification of any building code violation is not the goal of this Inspection Report and lies beyond the scope of the General Home Inspection.

If you wish to ascertain the degree to which the home complies with any applicable building codes, you should schedule a building code-compliance inspection.
If the living area has been remodeled or part of an addition, we recommend that you verify the permit and certificate of occupancy. This is important because our inspection does not tacitly approve, endorse, or guarantee the integrity of any work that was done without a permit, and latent defects could exist.

Feel free to visit our web site at www.renoveeinspections.com. Please call me (860) 874-7848 for any clarifications or further questions.

Sincerely,

Lukasz Zagrobelny
