Frequently Asked Questions

A general home inspection includes a complete evaluation and report regarding the dwellings current condition. The inspector looks for any signs of structural defects starting from the roof all the way down to the grading. Depending on the size, age, and number of mechanical equipment in the property, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.

Let’s face it, no one wants to pay an inspector a revisiting fee due to controllable conditions. Therefore, before scheduling your inspection ensure the property is free from clutter and/or personal belongings that could potentially restrict access or block the visibility of the inspector. Verify that the water and power to the property is turned on and the pets are not present or in kennels.

A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of the dwellings current condition. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your inspection report that are advised to be addressed, but these are strictly informative.

While you can legally skip a home inspection when purchasing or selling a home, doing so could put the owner or seller in full liability for any and all defects the home possesses.

While a home inspector may recommend repairs, they are not qualified or trained to perform them. He or she can provide information regarding preventative actions and/or suggested repairs, but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this give you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.

A home inspection can affect appraisals for two reasons: 1) The inspector may find something wrong with the property that would lower the value of the home, 2) The inspector may find things that need repair which could increase the value of the home. If the inspection finds issues that require repairs, then the seller has to decide whether they want to fix them themselves, or hire someone else to do it. If the buyer wants to purchase the home, he/she must be willing to pay for those repairs.
