Clients will receive an electronic copy of the inspection report within 24 - 48 hours of a completed inspection. If you need a hardcopy, I can mail it for an additional fee of $1.00 a page and 3-5 business days. They are comprehensive with photos so I suggest emailed and you can print it.
Standards of Practice are from InterNACHI. These standards will be followed during the inspection process. Your Pre-Inspection Agreement will identify a summary of what is included and excluded.
The SOP can found at https://www.nachi.org/sop.htm.
Numbered below is what is covered in a home inspection report with photos of safety concerns and defects. Note: It must be readily accessible. It would behoove you to ask the current homeowner to move rugs on the floor, items away from the attic hatch or crawl space, and maybe even furniture. If I can’t get to it, I can’t inspect it. There are a few items in the SOP, and for liabilities reasons that I will not turn off or on or move. I say this here because from personal experience important items were not inspected in my own ownership endeavor, and that was disappointing. The process of buying a home should be more transparent in order to make informed decisions.
