Home Inspection Checklist

We have provided a home inspection checklist that will show many of the items that may be included in your House Inspection Report.

As part of a typical home transaction, the buyer of your home will have a home inspection conducted. The inspector will produce a report of items that need attention. As a professional home inspector I come across many recurring items in homes. Many of these items are not expensive to repair but the homeowner is not aware that they need attention.
The standard contract states that the home systems should be functional. Functional means operating as intended. So, if you have a toilet in the hallway bathroom with a leaky stopper and it is running continuously it is not operating as intended.
This home inspection checklist can help you address many minor issues before the sale of your home to possibly prevent any problems at the end of the sale.
