A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.
Any inspection must include an agreement between the inspector and the client as to which components and systems the inspector will be evaluating.
The general home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.
Remember that an inspector can only report on what can be seen, given reasonable access. 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.
A material defect is a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people. The fact that a system or component is near, at or beyond the end of its normal useful life is not, in itself, a material defect.
Something deemed unsafe in the inspector's opinion, might be a condition of an area, system, component or procedure that is judged to be a significant risk of injury during normal, day-to- day use. The risk may be due to damage, deterioration, improper installation, or a change in accepted residential construction standards.
For example, a cracked foundation or a dangerous electrical condition would constitute a material defect, but a roof covering that had exceeded its intended lifespan would not, unless it was also showing signs of leakage.
A general home inspection report shall identify, in written format, defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. Inspection reports may include additional comments and recommendations.
A general home inspection will typically include the following areas:
- Basement, Foundation, Crawlspace & Structure
- Attic, Insulation & Ventilation
- Doors, Windows & Interior
