DEFINITION AND SCOPE
A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, designed to identify material defects within specific systems and components. “Defect” is defined by standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.
The general home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.
The general home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection when the inspection is complete, a general home inspection report will be issued.
A material defect is a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people. The fact that a system or component is near, at, or beyond the end of its normal, useful life is not, in itself, a material defect.
A general home inspection report shall identify, in written format, defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. Inspection reports may include additional comments and recommendations.
