Pre-Inspection Agreement


The parties to this agreement hereinafter referred to as the INSPECTOR and CLIENT agree as follows:

1.     The INSPECTOR agrees to perform a visual inspection of the dwelling and to provide CLIENT with a written inspection report identifying the major deficiencies. The inspection includes items and systems expressly and specifically identified as follows: driveway and walkways, drainage, foundation, electrical system, plumbing and water heater, ceilings, floors, walls, doors, windows, attic, central air conditioning (weather permitting), heating, crawl space/basement/slab, fireplaces and chimneys, siding and trim, roof and flashing, gutters, insulation, ventilation and built-in appliances.

2.     The inspection will be performed in a manner consistent with the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors http://www.homeinspector.org/Standards-of-Practice  

The inspection will be completed at the specified location and all information will be conveyed to the client or the client’s representative at the time the Inspection Report is completed. The inspection and report are performed and prepared for the sole, confidential, and exclusive use and possession of the Client. INSPECTOR accepts no responsibility for use or misrepresentation by third parties.

3.     Systems and conditions which are NOT within the scope of this inspection include, but are not limited to: environmental hazards (e.g., lead-based paint, formaldehyde, toxic or flammable materials, asbestos, content of drywall, radon gas, and mold (or other fungus); pest infestation; portable appliances (e.g., washers, dryers, window air conditioners); furnace heat exchangers, fire sprinkler systems; tennis courts; playground or other recreational or leisure equipment; septic tanks; water wells, lighting fixtures outside the house such as yard lights and any low voltage lighting or any item considered cosmetic in nature. Any general comments about these systems or conditions are informational only and do not represent an inspection of such. Radon gas testing and mold testing (if needed) can be done separately at an additional cost.

4.     It is understood and agreed that this inspection will be of readily accessible areas of the dwelling and is limited to visual observations of apparent conditions existing at the time of the inspection. The INSPECTOR will not climb on the roof if he feels it is unsafe or impractical to do so. The INSPECTOR will not enter any area of a crawlspace with less than 2 feet of headroom or that has adverse conditions. The INSPECTOR is not responsible for defects that may occur after the inspection is completed. Major deficiencies and defects, which are latent or concealed, are EXCLUDED from this inspection. The inspection is not intended to be technically exhaustive. Equipment and systems will not be assembled or dismantled.

5.     The inspection report is not intended to be used as guarantee or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding the adequacy, performance or condition of any inspected structure, item or system. The inspection and report are not intended to reflect the value of the premises, or to make any representation as to the advisability of purchase or the suitability for use.

6.     The Client agrees to pay the INSPECTOR the agreed upon inspection fee upon the completion of the inspection and the inspection report will not be delivered until payment is received unless otherwise agreed upon in advance. The fee can be paid with cash, by check, or credit card. 

7.     It is understood and agreed that if a dispute or controversy arises or should the INSPECTOR be found liable for any loss or damages resulting from a failure to perform any of the obligations of the INSPECTOR, including, but not limited to negligence, breach of contract, fraud or otherwise, that the liability of the INSPECTOR shall be limited to a sum equal to the amount of the Inspection Fee. The CLIENT will notify INSPECTOR of any dispute or claim prior to making any repairs and the INSPECTOR will have a right to examine any area of complaint before any repairs are made. No claim will be considered if repairs are made before notifying the INSPECTOR and allowing ample time for the INSPECTOR to evaluate such claim and re-inspect the disputed area of the home. No claim will be considered after 6 months from the date of inspection.

8.     This INSPECTION AGREEMENT represents the entire agreement between the INSPECTOR and the CLIENT.   No change or modification shall be enforceable against any party unless such change or modification is in writing and agreed upon by both parties. This agreement shall be binding upon and enforceable by all parties, and their heirs, executors, administrators, successors, assign, agents, attorneys in fact, attorneys at law, and representatives.

By Acknowledging this Agreement you confirm that you have read, understood and accepted the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
