Scope & Definition

  • general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, designed to identify defects within specific systems and components. “Defect” is defined by standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.
    • The general home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.
    • The general home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection
