For Home Buyers

This type of contingency clause provides a safety net and a way to get out of contractual obligations if defects are revealed. A home inspection by HIS Home Inspection Service may also discover open permits, code violations and construction or remodeling job done without a permit. If anyone of these is found, they can not only be expensive to fix but push the lender into withdrawing their commitment.

Inspectors vary in experience, ability, and thoroughness, and it is not unusual for sellers to get a second opinion to confirm the buyer’s inspector’s findings. We can provide you with a report that can ease any concerns a buyer may have.

Our code of ethics is intended to serve as a guide to the service we provide to our clients every day in a professional way. We have implemented these ethical codes in order to help our clients understand the rights and wrong, what’s acceptable and what is not.
Scope of Inspection
The home inspection is intended to assist you in evaluating the overall quality and general condition of the building and its components.
Exterior Scope of Inspection
Any area that is not exposed to view is concealed or is inaccessible because of soil, walls, floors, floor coverings, ceilings, furniture, equipment or stored items. The inspection does not include any destructive testing or dismantling. Client agrees to assume all risk for all conditions, which are concealed from view at the time of inspection. If a defect is hidden under to behind furnishings or inside walls or is buried, it is impossible for the inspector to locate the defect. This is not a home warranty, guarantee, insurance policy or substitute for real estate transfer disclosures which may be required.
Codes: The inspector does not inspect for compliance with building codes for two reasons. First, this is the jurisdiction of the municipality where the property is located. The municipality is responsible for ensuring that buildings are constructed according to standards for health and safety. Second, building codes constantly change, and codes in force when the house was built may not be current. It is impossible for an inspector to know all codes for all municipalities. The property may not meet the present code but may have been acceptable under the codes effect when the structure was built. The method allowing the old codes is referred to as grandfathering.
Limitations of Liability
The inspection findings will be limited in scope and based upon the visible and apparent condition of the systems and components of the building at the time of the inspection. Liability for error and omissions to HIS Home Inspect Services or inspector for this inspection and report is limited to a refund of the fee paid for this inspection and report. Client assumes all risk of all losses greater than the fee paid for this inspection and report.
Please Read Carefully
This inspection report is NOT A GUARANTEE/WARRANTY but a report of the existing conditions found during our visual inspection of the property. A sincere effort was made to identify as many defects as possible during our inspection. This report is made on the basis of what was visible and accessible at the time of inspection. We do not accept liability for any hidden defects that was enclosed, inaccessible or concealed by soil, walls, ceilings, floor coverings, furniture, equipment, stored articles, or problems that may occur in the future. Maximum liability to HIS Home Inspect Services is limited to the coast of this inspection.
Only items covered in this report are applicable. We strongly recommend that a certified, licensed and insured contractor complete all repairs and/or further evaluations commented in this report. We do not test and/or take soil, air, and a water sample. Some homes may contain asbestos, lead paint, mold, Corrosive drywall or other hazardous materials, which we do not perform, so this report will not comment on these items, other than to point out a visible potential problem and recommend further investigation. You may wish to contact an expert in these fields if these items concern you.
The following definitions of comment descriptions represent this inspection report. All comments by the inspector should be considered before purchasing this home. Any recommendations by the inspector to repair or replace suggests a second opinion or further inspection by a qualified contractor. All costs associated with further inspection fees and repair or replacement of item, component or unit should be considered before you purchase the property.
Estimates for Repair
The Florida Home Inspector Law states that: “A home inspector is not required to provide estimates related to the cost of repair of an inspected property”. Estimates for repair costs are made on courtesy basis if requested and are to be used only as a guide and are based on approximate current rates of professional licensed contractors. The customer should determine the actual cost of repairs before closing. We strongly recommend that you obtain written estimates from at least 2 to 3 different licensed contractors and do not rely exclusively on these estimates. One should consider worst case scenarios since many of these estimates are based on fact finding. This means they can be upgraded upwards in the event other issues are found during the work.
Mechanical appliances, water heaters, heating and cooling systems are highly used and highly maintained items with a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years. These highly used items can be working in good, satisfactory condition and may break down without warning. Comments of Satisfactory, Marginal or Poor in this report on these items are made at the time of inspection and are NOT A GUARANTEE/WARRANTY. We are not responsible for changes in the condition and performance of these items after the inspection date.
Pictures do not represent all the problems found during the home inspection. They are intended for the client to get a visual and understanding on certain items or items that are usually not visible like rooftop, attic, and crawl space. Please read the complete report and feel free to call if you have questions.
