The purpose of a home inspection is to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs. Don’t purchase a property without a home inspection.
In general, a home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible systems and components of a home and is intended to give the client an understanding of the condition of the home on the day it is inspected, taking into consideration normal wear and tear.
A home inspection is not an appraisal of the property’s value, nor does it include the cost of repairs. It does not guarantee that the home complies with building codes or protect you in the event an item inspected fails in the future.
