Home Inspection Limitations & Exclusions


Home inspections tell you a great deal of very valuable information, but they can't do everything. 

A Home inspection is not:

A code compliance evaluation 
Code inspections are performed by a government authority having jurisdiction. Codes are minimal standards and vary from area to area depending on the local laws and how these codes are interpreted by the inspector and they change from time to time.

An appraisal 
An appraisal establishes a dollar value on a property. An inspection evaluates physical conditions.

After The Inspection
Seller Requested Repairs

The inspector may turn up something that needs attention or repair, and after the inspection, the buyers may produce a list of items they want repaired as a condition for moving forward on the sale.

When you get the buyers' list, remember that some of the items may be negotiable. Sales contracts usually require that all the systems be in working condition. Some buyers may make requests that go beyond the normal obligations of the seller. They may ask for a new roof or certain structural repairs that you may not want to make. Your agent can help you to assess the risks of just saying "no" to buyers who are making demands you consider to be unreasonable. You may decide to decline the requests, but the buyers may also decide to back out of the deal as a result.

When you agree to make repairs, hire licensed professionals who will guarantee their work, and give copies of the reports to the buyers. Arrange to have the repairs made as far ahead of time to avoid last-minute complications which could compromise the transaction.

Ultimate One Month Moving Checklist
What To Do, When To Do It

Moving may be the most stressful thing one can do, so naturally I've picked the craziest time of year to do it. Genius. To help keep my sanity, I've been relying heavily on my master to-do list. I broke it down week-by-week for the final month before my move in order to not only accomplish it all, but do it within the time frame that makes sense. 
Tips & Tricks
  • When possible, pull rather than push a wrench handle; it's easier and more efficient.
  • The longer a wrench handle, the more leverage it gives.
  • To protect the finish of plumbing fixtures, cover the teeth of a pipe wrench with several layers of electrician's, duct or cloth tape.
