Inspection Overview/Terms

RENTAL INSPECTION REPORT:
The Rental Inspection Report is intended as an assessment of the condition of the property on the day of the inspection.  The report will document concerns related to overall property condition, maintenance concerns present, evidence of tenant damage or neglect, potential property code violations and visible evidence of insurance risks.    The assessment is visual and non-invasive and is intended to document through notes, photos and videos the current property condition.  

INSPECTION CATEGORIES:

1) Maintenance Item - These are repairs that, in the opinion of the inspector, are regular maintenance items typical for all homes.  Repair to these items is not urgent, but should be performed in the near future.

2) Repair Recommendation - The item, component or unit was visually observed, and is not functioning as intended or needs further inspection by a qualified specialist. Items, components or units that can be repaired to satisfactory condition may not need replacement.

3) Safety Concern - The item, component or unit represents a safety concern to the occupants and should be immediately repaired.

LIMITATIONS
For occupied homes, tenant furniture and belongings can often present complete inspection of every room and area.  We do our very best to identify every concern visible, but items can be hidden or blocked from view by tenant items.

SideWalk Trip hazard - Mudjack or Replace

The concrete walkway at the front of the home has settled or heaved in areas. This appears to have created possible tripping hazards, where the concrete is raised in areas. Consider replacement or mud-jacking at this time, to repair. Consult with a concrete professional for repair options and costs.

2.11.1 - GRADING AND DRAINAGE

Plastic sheeting exposed
North

There's plastic sheeting around the edge of the north side of the home. This is likely to keep water from sitting near the foundation. I recommend covering the plastic to protect it with landscaping material.

9.9.1 - PLUMBING FIXTURES, FAUCETS, DRAINS

9.10.1 - TOILETS AND BIDETS

Toilet loose, investigate

The toilet is loose at floor. Repair is needed to secure the toilet to the floor properly, and may also involve re-setting the toilet on a new wax seal. It is unknown if any moisture damage or leaking is occurring around the toilet, and if any damage is present to the sub-flooring, framing, or surrounding materials, or whether any mold is present from this leaking. When the toilet is removed to replace the wax seal, the surrounding area should be evaluated and investigated for any moisture damage or potential mold.

10.11.1 - ELECTRICAL OUTLETS

no GCFI in Kitchen/Bath/Laundry
Laundry room

The electrical outlets are not protected by a GFCI outlet.  While this may not have been required when the home was built, GFCI outlets provide protection from electric shock and are now required to be installed near sources of water, such as at kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and outdoors. I recommend that an electrician install GFCI outlets where needed for safety protection.
