What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of a property. The inspection is usually done for a specific fee; this fee can range between $199 – $499 depending on the type of inspection.
During the inspection, inspectors use various equipment to assist them in a thorough examination of your home. After the inspection has been completed, the inspector will compile a home inspection report which will be shared with you.
Limitations, Exceptions, And Exclusions Of A Home Inspection
We understand that if you pay for a home inspection that you would like to think that inspectors can identify and point out all problems. But you have to remember that the inspection is a visual inspection and that concealed defects can not be identified.
There are thus various limitations, exceptions, and exclusions that forms part of a home inspection. Some of the rules of a home inspection include the following.
- Inspectors can not determine the market value of a property; you will have to consult a realtor for this information.
- An inspector can not advise you on if you should purchase a property or not. They can only identify the current problems found at the property and suggest ways to fix these problems.
- Inspectors can not determine the life expectancy of a property or its components.
Another essential thing to remember is that a home inspection focuses on specific house components. That is why we included a Maui home inspection checklist for you. Any other components or systems that form part of the house or property will not necessarily be checked by the inspector.
The inspectors will check and test all the components based on the Standards of Practice, but anything outside the standards would be excluded from the inspection.
