8) The dishwasher drain line is not configured with a "high loop". A high loop is created by routing the drain line up to the bottom surface of the counter top above, and securely fastening it to that surface. It is meant to prevent water from siphoning out of the dishwasher, and to prevent water from the sink drain or food disposal from entering the dishwasher. Some dishwashers have a built-in high loop where one is not required to be configured in the drain line. The clients should try to determine if a high loop is required for this brand and model of dishwasher (review installation instructions, etc.). If one is required, or it cannot be determined if one is not required, then a qualified contractor should install a high loop as per standard building practices.
11) Handrails is missing in front stairway. One or more flights of stairs with more than two risers have no handrail installed. This is a safety hazard. A licensed contractor should install graspable handrails that your hand can completely encircle at stairs where missing, and as per standard building practices.
12) Living room light switch cover plate is broken. Cover plates should be replaced where necessary.
13) It is recommended to have air circulating for the loft area. (Ex. Install a ceiling fan)
