A Residential Home Inspection is for anyone looking to buy a new home or sell a home. It is overview of all of the major components of the home, and is used by buyers or sellers to determine the condition of the home.
The standard 3 Arrows Property Inspection report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing system; electrical system; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; and the foundation, basement and structural components. ASHI publishes a Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics that outlines what to expect to be covered in the home inspection report.
It is important to note that there may be some exceptions. If certain areas are inaccessible (locked door, tenant’s belongings in the way) or unsafe conditions (severely steep roofs, poor structural integrity) the inspector will explain the situation and note that they were not able to assess that specific area or system.
