PROPERTY INSPECTION REPORT

Client(s):  SAMPLE 2
Property address:  106546 WEST 25 PL
SUNRISE, FL 65656
Inspection date:  Friday, October 19, 2018

This report published on Monday, November 19, 2018 6:58:06 AM EDT

This inspection was performed in accordance with the Standards of Practice for Performing a General Home Inspection of The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors(INTERNACHI) These can be viewed here. http://www.nachi.org/sop.htm

A home inspection is a non invasive, visual inspection of all readily accessible areas of the home including exterior components, roof covering, structure, site conditions that affect the structure, interior components, electrical system, plumbing system, and the HVAC system. Inspectors are generalists, are not acting as experts in any craft or trade, and are conducting what is essentially a visual inspection and professional opinion. A home inspection is not a code compliance inspection, zoning inspection, or an ADA inspection. It is not a prediction of future conditions, and it is not a guarantee or warranty of any kind. Everything noted on this Report was only at the "Time of the Inspection".

The Inspector does not perform a Wood Destroying Organism(WDO) inspection or test for lead paint, lead in the water supply, asbestos, formaldehyde, or any other environmental hazards. Any Mention of Wood Destroying Organism finding in this report is strictly a Courtesy.
A State licensed Termite or Pest Control specialist should always evaluate any findings to ensure any active infestations. The inspector does not test for the presence of mold unless the service has been requested by the client.

A Home Inspection does not guarantee insurability. Although every effort is made to stay educated and informed on insurability issues, the insurance companies have the final say on what they do and do not insure. All companies are different and can change their policies at any time.

The home does not receive a "pass" or "fail" grade. The intent of the report is to inform you the buyer of the general condition of the home and what you may expect as far as ongoing maintenance and repairs so you can make a more informed buying decision. All homes will have defects and your home inspection report can be a powerful tool in the negotiations process. This report is only supplemental to the seller's disclosure and should never be taken as a replacement to your Pre-closing or walkthrough Inspection. Conditions can change from this Inspection date to your Closing date. You should operate all mechanicals and appliances, especially those not fully inspected and review any areas that might have been concealed from the Inspection due to Furniture or personal belongings. Also review any areas that were noted as having prior moisture problems or leaks.

This report contains observations of those systems and components that are, in the professional "opinion" of the inspector writing this report, significantly deficient or are near the end of their expected service life. If the cause for the deficiency is not readily apparent, the suspected cause or reason why the system or component is at or near end of expected service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.

Limitations: The inspector performs a visual inspection of accessible components or systems at the exterior. Items excluded from this inspection include below-grade foundation walls and footings; foundations, exterior surfaces or components obscured by vegetation, stored items or debris; wall structures obscured by coverings such as siding or trim. Some items such as siding, trim, soffits, vents and windows are often high off the ground, and may be viewed using binoculars from the ground or from a ladder. This may limit a full evaluation. Regarding foundations, some amount of cracking is normal in concrete slabs and foundation walls due to shrinkage and drying. Note that the inspector does not determine the adequacy of seismic reinforcement.

Table of contents
Limitations: The following items or areas are not included in this inspection: areas that could not be traversed or viewed clearly due to lack of access; solar roofing components. Any comments made regarding these items are made as a courtesy only. Note that the inspector does not provide an estimate of remaining life on the roof surface material, nor guarantee that leaks have not occurred in the roof surface, skylights or roof penetrations in the past. Regarding roof leaks, only active leaks, visible evidence of possible sources of leaks, and evidence of past leaks observed during the inspection are reported on as part of this inspection. The inspector does not guarantee or warrant that leaks will not occur in the future. Complete access to all roof and attic spaces during all seasons and during prolonged periods of all types of weather conditions (e.g. high wind and rain, melting snow) would be needed to do so. Occupants should monitor the condition of roofing materials in the future. For older roofs, recommend that a professional inspect the roof surface, flashings, appurtenances, etc. annually and maintain/repair as might be required. If needed, the roofer should enter attic space(s). Regarding the roof drainage system, unless the inspection was conducted during and after prolonged periods of heavy rain, the inspector was unable to determine if gutters, downspouts and extensions perform adequately or are leak-free.

Complete access to all roof and attic spaces during all seasons and during prolonged periods of all types of weather conditions (e.g. high/low temperatures, high/low humidity, high wind and rain, melting snow) would be needed to do so.

Electrical Components - Section cost estimate: $285
Table of contents
Limitations: The following items are not included in this inspection: generator systems, transfer switches, surge suppressors, inaccessible or concealed wiring; underground utilities and systems; low-voltage lighting or lighting on timers or sensors. Any comments made regarding these items are as a courtesy only. Note that the inspector does not determine the adequacy of grounding or bonding, if this system has an adequate capacity for the client's specific or anticipated needs, or if this system has any reserve capacity for additions or expansion. The inspector does not operate circuit breakers as part of the inspection, and does not install or change light bulbs. The inspector does not evaluate every wall switch or receptacle, but instead tests a representative number of them per various standards of practice. When furnishings, stored items or child-protective caps are present some receptacles are usually inaccessible and are not tested; these are excluded from this inspection. Receptacles that are not of standard 110 volt configuration, including 240-volt dryer receptacles, are not tested and are excluded. The functionality of, power source for and placement of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms is not determined as part of this inspection. Upon taking occupancy, proper operating and placement of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms should be verified and batteries should be changed. These devices have a limited lifespan and should be replaced every 10 years. The inspector attempts to locate and evaluate all main and sub-panels. However, panels are often concealed. If panels are found after the inspection, a qualified electrician should evaluate and repair if necessary. The inspector attempts to determine the overall electrical service size, but such estimates are not guaranteed because the overall capacity may be diminished by lesser-rated components in the system. Any repairs recommended should be made by a licensed electrician.

37) Microbial growths were found at one or more locations in the garage. It is beyond the scope of this inspection to identify what substance or organism this staining is. Staining is normally caused by excessively moist conditions, which in turn can be caused by plumbing or building envelope leaks and/or substandard ventilation. These conducive conditions should be corrected before making any attempts to remove or correct the staining. Normally affected materials such as drywall are removed, enclosed affected spaces are allowed to dry thoroughly, a mildewcide may be applied, and only then is drywall reinstalled. For evaluation and possible mitigation, consult with a qualified industrial hygienist or mold/moisture mitigation specialist. For more information, visit:
