What documents will I receive?

On the day of inspection, you will receive a comprehensive, customized inspection report detailing the general conditions of the building, improvements, mechanical systems, and appliances as they exist on inspection day. A “Summary Report” will be provided detailing the systems or components that are found to be not functioning properly or adversely affecting the habitability of the house. Your professionally prepared report will also include our contract, a copy of the South Carolina residential Builders Commission Home Inspector “Standards of Practice”, and general information about the care and upkeep of your home. For your convenience, copies of your inspection report can be forwarded to your Realtor or Lender at no extra charge.
