Quick Tips on Home Inpsection

When getting a home inspection, it is important to read the pre inspection contract. This will navigate you through the terms and conditions of your home inspection. The homes inspection is only a visible inspection for items that have reached the end of their useful lifecycle or have a “conducive condition” to soon being a problem. The home inspector can not damage the house when inspecting the home. This means that hidden damage between walls or not visibible can not be detected by ahome inspector. The most common is leaking windows that do not show damage to the interior of walls. The home inspector can test for rot around the windows but can only recommend further evalution by a Licensed General Contractor if further work needs to be done. At this point, it becomes a negotiation between home owner and buyer on who will pay and if the buyer wants to continue.

Derek, yes, some issues simply can't be evaluted without spending more significant amounts of money.  Buyers must understand the limiations of a general home inspection.

Yes, the Home Inspection is only a visual inspection and refers to specialities within the Real Estate Field for futher inspection.
