A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual observation and operation of the accessible systems and components of real property, including buildings and other improvements. Its purpose is a) to identify conditions that, in the professional opinion of the Inspector, are significantly deficient or b) to identify systems and components that are at the end of their service lives.
The Inspection is strictly limited to the examination of readily accessible, installed systems and components of homes by using normal operating controls and opening readily operable access panels, where applicable, of the following components of the Property: structure, foundation, exterior, roof, attic, major mechanical systems (heating, air conditioning, electrical, and plumbing), built-in appliances, and interior (floors, ceilings, walls, windows, and doors). All components will be inspected pursuant to the Standards of Practice set forth for Home Inspectors by the Commerce Department – Division of Real Estate as contained in Chapter 1301-:17-1-17 of the Ohio Administrative Code. Where multiple instances of the same component exist, a representative number shall be inspected. The observations of conditions are limited to those areas of the home which can be reached, entered, or viewed without difficulty, moving obstructions, or requiring any action which may result in damage to the Property or personal injury to the Inspector. Any additional services outside the list of components in this contract or in those rules must be specifically agreed to in writing between the Inspector and the Client.
