Are items that could incur a liability, are hazardous, or expensive to repair, clearly identified?
Is the description of each item clear, concise, and easy to understand?
Does the description of each item tell you what each defect is, why it’s a problem, and how to fix it?
Does the photo of each item clearly identify the problem?
So that you won’t be overly concerned about the building’s minor defects, an experienced inspector will clearly identify these as “insignificant” or “minor”.
Does the report demonstrate that the inspector spent the time necessary to provide you with a detailed, accurate report?
After reading the report, do you feel like you know this building well enough to make an informed purchasing decision?
