Inspection Limitations & Exclusions
Return to table of contents


38) - :Please Read
GENERALIST VS. SPECIALIST A property inspector is a generalist and the inspection is conducted along generalist
guidelines as listed above. The generalist job is to note material defects in the property
he is inspecting. When he observes and finds one or more problems in a system of the
property that affects its performance he may then refer the entire system over to a
specialist in that field for a further detailed investigation. The specialist is expected to
conduct a more detailed examination on that system from his specialist sphere of
knowledge and training to determine all the problems with the system and the related
costs of repairs. The specialist is inspecting from a depth of knowledge and experience
that the generalist may not have.

REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLING:The building has many identical components such as windows, electrical outlets, etc.
We may only inspect a representative sampling of these only. We do not move any furniture or
personal belongings. This means that some deficiencies which were there may go
unnoted or there may be items which are impossible to anticipate. We suggest that you
plan for unforeseen repairs. This is part of property ownership as all buildings will have
some of these repairs as well as normally occurring maintenance.
USE OF THE REPORT: The inspection report does not constitute a warranty, insurance policy or guarantee of
any kind. It is confidential and is given solely for the use and benefit of the client and is
not intended to be used for the benefit of or be relied upon by any other buyer or other
third party.

MOLD, MILDEW AND FUNGI: Mold, mildew and fungus are specifically excluded from the inspection and the report.
The inspector is not qualified to note the presence or absence of mold. In some cases
mold has been found to be a serious problem and should not be overlooked. Because
we do not inspect for mold, should you have any concerns at all about mold or the future
discovery of mold, we always recommend that a buyer has a building inspected for mold
during the contingency period and prior to the close of escrow.

WOOD DESTROYING ORGANISMS: Termites, dry-rot, wood rot and wood destroying organisms
are covered by the structural pest control operator's report. These are not part of the inspection and the inspector will
not be inspecting for them. The Business and Professions Code prohibits anyone butlicensed structural pest control
operators from commenting on this subject.

BUILDING CODES: This is not a building code or code compliance inspection. That is a different type of
inspection performed by the local municipality, usually during construction. It is advised
to obtain all available documentation such as building permits and certificates of
occupancy during the inspection contingency period.

HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES: Identifying hazardous substances is not part of this inspection. Items such as
formaldehyde, lead based paint, asbestos, toxic or flammable chemicals and
environmental hazards are not tested for and not within the scope of the inspection.

INSPECTION LIMITATIONS: This is a limited time visual inspection. It excludes any items we cannot directly observe
such as chimney interiors, furnace heat exchangers, underground piping, etc. These are
specialty inspections and those inspections can be arranged using specialized
equipment.
Additionally we may not inspect to see if components are installed properly. We do not
have the specialized training, instruction sheets or manuals to determine if they meet
specific manufacturer or building code requirements for installation, which can be quite varied.
This is part of the specialist's inspection and any questions concerning installation would
best answered by a specialist.

COMMENT: Information expressed to the client regarding the above limitations is provided as a courtesy
and based on the individual inspectors experience.

Thank-You for the opportunity to Inspect your Home. Frank Bua-CSI Inspection Services
