Such as recommended repairs, maintenance concerns, or any other costly problems. The inspector will examine every aspect of physical structure of the house–from foundation to roofing to systems.

A professional home inspector will check the condition of your property, comprehensive of systems like heating/cooling, plumbing, electricity, and water/sewage. They will also look for any fire or safety hazards. Furthermore, they’ll inspect for signs of water or fire damage that might affect the value of your home.

An assessment in a report can range from material defects that decrease a home’s value to less severe cosmetic concerns. Depending on the evaluation, the buyer could choose to continue with the sale as is, schedule other inspections, try to renegotiate the cost of the house with repairs included with what was found during inspection  or cancel negotiation for purchase altogether.
