What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of the home. Home inspections are conducted by a home inspector who has been trained and licensed to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition or efficiency.
