That means the inspector is not allowed to break open walls or dig into yards.
The buyer schedules and pays for additional inspections if they decide any issue outlined on their general home inspection report is important enough to merit additional evaluation prior to agreeing to proceed with the sale.
An inspection contingency is a clause in the purchase agreement that gives the buyer the right to have a home inspection done. If problems are discovered, the inspection contingency gives them the power to negotiate repairs or, if the problems are serious enough, to walk away from the sale with no penalty.
As a consumer and homebuyer you have the right to know exactly what a Total Home Inspection is. The information presented here is intended to give you a better understanding and guideline of exactly what your Total Home Inspector will and will not do for you during the course of an inspection.
First and foremost, a Total Home Inspection is a primarily visual survey of those accessible areas that our inspector can see. No destructive testing or dismantling is done during the course of an inspection, hence a Total Home Inspector can only tell a client exactly what was in evidence at the time and date of the inspection. The inspector's eyes are not necessarily any better than the buyer's, except that the inspector is trained to look for specific tell-tale signs and clues that may lead to the discovery of actual or potential defects or deficiencies.
Total Home Inspectors base their inspections on the current industry standards provided to them by their professional societies (ASHI Standards) and the State of Connecticut's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. These standards tell what the Total Home Inspector will and can do, as well as what the Total Home Inspector will not and/or cannot do.
These standards clearly spell out specific areas in which the Total Home Inspector must identify various defects and deficiencies, as well as identifying the specific systems, components and items that are being inspected. There are many excluded areas noted in these standards on which the inspector does not have to report, for example: private water and sewer systems, solar systems, security systems, subterranean systems, etc. A Total Home Inspector is not limited by, and often exceeds, those standards. If the Total Home Inspector can include additional inspection services, then they may perform as many specific inspection procedures as the client requests.
The careful step-by-step procedure of a Total Home Inspection may take up to, and in many cases exceed three hours to complete. You are encouraged to attend the inspection so that the details of the process and its findings can be expressed to you face to face, as the inspection is taking place. A Total Home Inspector will always take pleasure in explaining the operation of all systems within the real property or prospective real property, and describing the possible ramifications of his findings. He will also, in your presence, make every effort to locate and identify important emergency valves, switches and buttons to better allow you to understand the workings of the dwelling. While the inspection does not in any way represent a guarantee or warranty, a Total Home Inspection represents the industry's finest pre-purchase measure of confidence available to a buyer.
Total Home Inspectors are respecters as well. We treat the properties we inspect with kid gloves, leaving the property in the same condition as it was when we entered it. Our inspectors wear booties or slippers to protect carpets and floors, because to us, the property is someone's home (perhaps soon to be yours) ...and our mothers raised us to behave ourselves when we are guests in someone's home.
A client's relationship with Total Home Inspection does not end when the inspection and report are complete and in hand. At Total Home Inspection, we consider ourselves home consultants to our clients for as long as they own the real property we inspected for them. If ever a question should arise or our clients should be in need of counsel or clarification we are eager to serve them to the best of our ability, or guide them to where they can best be served.
Anyone with a license, flashlight, and business card can call himself a home inspector. But to entrust your inspection to just anyone is a risk not worth taking. After all, there are few transactions more important, more costly, or more lasting than the purchase or sale of real property.
The American Society of Home Inspectors is the national professional organization of home inspectors with members throughout the United States and Canada. Formed in 1976 as a not-for-profit organization to build public awareness of home inspection and to enhance the technical and professional performance of home inspectors, ASHI is the oldest and most respected professional association of home inspectors in North America.
If you are planning to sell your home, you should consider having a Total Home Inspection. This will give you a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's inspector and an opportunity to make any repairs that will put the property in better selling condition prior to placing it on the market.
A Better Home Inspection is one of the oldest home inspection companies serving San Diego, Riverside, and Orange County. Since 1988, our unique approach to home inspections has set us head-and-shoulders above the rest. This is not only due to the superior reports we create, but the personal attention you get from our certified, experienced and friendly home inspectors.
In-person inspections increased in June for public and multifamily housing properties. Due to the pause, there are many properties waiting for an inspection. Please be patient as an inspector may not come to your property right away. The Property and Unit Inspections flyer (PDF) provides more details and is available in 19 languages.
Inspections are meant to help and protect you. Inspectors make sure you are being provided a decent, safe, and sanitary home. They are not there to assess you as a tenant or to check if your home is clean.
The following are examples of things HUD inspectors make sure are functional and in good condition during an inspection. If there is an issue, they will report it as a deficiency in the inspection report. If you notice any of these items need repair, tell your property manager or landlord right away.
In addition to REAC inspections, properties also have routine inspections. Your property manager is required to give you notice of any type of inspection. Your state or local government may also have laws and regulations around inspections.
Qualified inspectors complete REAC inspections. Inspectors are usually employees, contractors of the local public housing agency (PHA), or inspectors contracted by HUD. HUD inspectors must successfully complete and pass a HUD certification course prior to conducting inspections on behalf of HUD.
Note for Tribal housing: As sovereign nations, each tribe chooses an organization to manage its HUD-funded or assisted housing programs. These are called tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs). Like PHAs, TDHEs oversee housing inspections that follow HUD standards. Learn more from the Office of Native American Programs.
If you have concerns about the safety or condition of your home, you can report an issue. Depending on what the issue is, this may result in a special inspection. This would be in addition to a regularly scheduled REAC inspection.
If the property fails the initial move-in inspection and the landlord refuses to fix the issue, you may need to find another apartment to lease. Work with your public housing agency (PHA) to find another rental property.

Justin with AA Home Inspection did an amazing job with my home inspection in Northern KY. He was very detailed, pointed out many things that went unnoticed by myself and the seller. He had a great depth of knowledge about regulations, and suggested fixes. His kindness and hard work was very much appreciated. 041b061a72
