About Your Inspection
What to expect from your inspection.
Standards for the Inspection
A visual inspection will be performed by our licensed inspectors on the building in accordance with the Florida Statutes 468.83 and the Florida Association of Building Inspectors
(FABI) Standards of Practice. Each inspection item will be documented for function, condition and general state (See inspection item list below). Any observable deficiencies will be documented and recommendations for repair/remediations will be given. During our inspection, we may be required to operate or test systems in the building (AC, kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures etc.). All tests will be performed on systems in a standard manner as they were intended to function. Nothing will be operated outside of its normal mode, nor will any system be disassembled (beyond the normal service covers) for inspection of inner components.
During the Inspection
Inspections will typically begin at the exterior of the building, followed by the interior (for condominiums, suites and studios – inspections begin directly inside).
You are welcome to tag along for the inspection and observe our process or you can sit back and wait until the end to discuss observations. Whatever you choose, we encourage you to at least be present at the inspection. Whereas all concerns will be documented in your report, seeing them first hand, makes for a better understanding. We only ask that all major questions be reserved for the end of the inspection, when we will go over all our findings.
After the inspection
We give a verbal summary of our findings at the end of each inspection. If you are not available to attend the inspection, we can do this through phone or video call.
We will explain the general condition of the property with you and your agent. You will have the opportunity to ask any necessary questions at this time. We will discuss any major concerns we recommend be addressed immediately, and we will highlight any system that appear to be in need of maintenance/servicing. Your report will then be prepared and delivered (via email) within the next business day.
