A Nuanced Look At What We Cover

The following is a graphical mockup of a model home.  We go to great lengths to communicate the specifics of our service to our customers because we feel the more educated the customer the more likely they’re able to draw real value out of our reports during the real estate purchasing process.  The model home graphic depicts examples of inspected items (visible portions only) and information provided (limited by applicable SOP) :

CLIENT RESPONSIBILITIES

The client or their agent schedules the inspection with the seller and ensures that access to the property is available for the inspector. The client and real estate agent are encouraged to attend the inspection. If attendance is not possible, the inspection fee must be paid before the report or information pertaining to the inspection is released unless prior arrangements were made.  Credit card payments can be made through PayPal on this website, see the T.H.I.S./cost page.

On vacant properties the client must arrange for utilities, water / gas / electrical, to be turned on in order for a proper inspection to be done on items requiring it.  Ask your agent to arrange this.

Any areas such as crawl spaces, attic and access openings, garage floors and walls not accessible due to stored items cannot be fully inspected therefore it is advisable to have the owner ensure the areas are not blocked or nailed shut.

Client agrees to read and sign the Inspectors Agreement before the Inspection and post all pages as soon as possible for scheduling.

Payment is due at or before the Inspection, and the report will be sent typically within12 hours.
