Home Inspection Checklist 

Home inspection reports do not describe the condition of every component if it's in excellent shape, but should note items that are defective or needing service. The serious problems are:

 

  • Roofs 
  • Furnace / A/C malfunctions
  • Foundation deficiencies
  • Moisture / drainage issues
  • Electrical / Plumbing issues 
    Standards of practice have been established by the State of Texas and the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) for licensed inspectors. The standards of practice are the minimum levels of inspection practice required of inspectors for the accessible parts, components, and systems typically found in improvements to real property, excluding detached structures, decks, docks and fences. The inspector may provide a higher level of inspection performance than required by the standards of practice and may inspect parts, components, and systems in addition to those described by the standards of practice.
