Thank you! Now, with the Inspection Report
on your hands, you should now...
Thank you (Seller/Buyer/Owner) for choosing us to perform the General Home Inspection of the dwelling. The inspection performed to provide data to elaborate the Inspection Report it was visual in nature only, and non-invasive. The purpose of the Inspection 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
A property does not "Pass" or "Fail" a General Home inspection. An inspection is designed to reflect the visual condition of the home at the time of the inspection.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about either the report or the property, soon after reading the report, or at any time in the future!
The following conditions lie beyond the scope of the General Home inspection:
- Identification of building regulation violations;
- Conditions not readily observable;
- Failure to follow manufacturer's installation recommendations, or
- Any condition requiring research.
• Read the Report!
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.
• 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.
Safety hazards or poorly performed work can continue to be a problem, or even be made worse when home sellers try to save money by hiring inexpensive, unqualified workmen, or by doing work themselves.
Be sure to take whatever actions are necessary before the expiration of your Inspection Object Deadline!
• Do a Final Walk-Through!
Because conditions can change very quickly, we recommend that you or your representative perform a final walk-through inspection immediately before closing to check the condition of the property, using the report as a guide.
To understand more fully what is and is not included in a General Home Inspection, please visit the Standards of Practice page of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) at www.nachi.org/sop.
