be reviewed, in some cases several times, inspection times take
approximately one hour for each 1000sft under air with an hour and

needed to meet the needs of the home and individuals, within reason.
Our scheduled time between inspection appointments typically allows
ample time for each inspection with extra time when necessary.

visual inspecting. Your Real Estate Contract, between you and the
home owner, typically have agreements as how defects will be
addressed, and by whom. Your Realtor or Real Estate Attorney can
better explain what those agreements are and help in implementation
of those agreements. We do offer a service to verify work was
performed and within industry standards. PLEASE SEE
THE REPORT TRANSFERRABLE?

use it on the clients behalf, regarding the purchase or sale of the
home listed in the report. PLEASE SEE "INSPECTION
