Questions and Answers

Q. What Information do I need to schedule a Home Inspection?

A. Besides you and your Agents contact info, you will need the property address, the square footage. If possible, the year built,one story or two, number of bed rooms, number of full baths, ½ baths, Are the utilities on? MLS # ?

Q. What does the seller need to do to prepare for the inspection?

A. To prepare the home for inspection please remove obstacles that block access to the following 1) Electric panels, 2) Heating and cooling equipment 3) Wall heaters 4) Under building crawl space access 5) Attic space access, including removing personal property which impede access though closet or garage. 6) Under sink areas 7) GFCI outlets
8) kitchen sinks 9) Dishwashers 10) water heaters
All space heating and water heating equipment should be operational (this means that standing pilot lights must be lit and that gas fired equipment supply valves must be open). All systems (water, gas, and electrical) should be on. If I find electrical circuit breakers in the off position, standing pilot lights unlit, gas valves, water stops, or main water supply valves shut off or other essential or major component controls disabled, I will assume that they are in such condition for a reason and the written report will state that they are inoperable.

I will not move or disturb personal items including furniture rugs, carpet, window coverings, (items on window sills, countertops or furniture). boxes, pictures or stored items. Please have window coverings open and window sills clear of items that may interfere with the inspection.
