Checklist for the Inspection Customer
Review the list of
Inspection Groups or Individual Inspections. If you have questions,
please contact our office at 918-744-8128 to talk with a Representative
from 8 am to 5 pm Monday thru Friday to discuss your specific requirements
and expectations. Please read the first paragraph of the Summary
of Inspection Groups if the choices look overwhelming. The choice
of inspection is easier than it first appears! You may also go to the Staff
page for a selection of contacts via Email.
Think about the age
of the home; furnaces and Air conditioners wear out in 12-15 years.
Design of the home; a two-story or flat roof needs a roof inspection, air
ducts in the floor need a Video Inspection. History of the home;
moisture or Structural disclosures? Get and Engineering report! Is
the home over 10 years old? Get at least the Expanded Realtor®
Contract Inspection Group.
Carefully read and
sign the Inspection Agreement to enable our staff to promptly issue the
reports. There are many ways to return the Inspection Agreement after
you have had time to review and sign it. Some of the items in the Agreement
are required to be acknowledged by the Customer.
Have you completely
read the Seller's Disclosure Statement? If not, you should at the
earliest opportunity. If you received a Seller’s Disclaimer Statement,
then “Buyer Beware”. Please bring either one, as applies, to the Inspection
for the Inspector to review.
Are all of the utilities,
(Gas, Water, Electricity), functioning inside the home? If you are
not sure, ask your Realtor® or the Seller of the property. We
need all of the utilities to be “on” to do the best Inspection possible.
If the all utilities are not on at time of inspection there maybe an additional
fee to have the Inspector return to finish the job.
Has the Occupant been
asked to move personal items away from the furnace closets, attic access,
and the area around the entrance to the attic, hot water tank closets,
electrical panels, crawl space access doors, and all of the windows?
Have animals been restrained
while persons unfamiliar to the animals are present ?
If this Inspection
is taking place during the winter months, has the property been De-Winterized,
(water turned on, plumbing flushed, and heat left on)?
Has the documentation
on the Septic System, prior Foundation Piering, French drain, New Roof
surface, past Insurance claims, Water Well potability, been provided to
the inspector ?
Please review The Complete
Book of Residential Property Inspection Services. We have a great
deal of information to share with you before buying a home.
And most important,
we want you, the Customer, to be at the inspection. We want to show
you how to change the air filters in the furnace, where the main water
shut-off valve and the sewer clean-out, etc. are located. Please
ask questions which should give you confidence in your new home.
