Buyer & Seller Information
To coordinate the necessary preparations for all parties involved, it is important to provide your inspector with your real estate agent’s contact information.
While it is recommended that you be present for the inspection, it is not required. If you are not available for the entire inspection, it is a good idea to be present for a short period of time near the end to go over any deficiencies the inspector may have discovered.
- We have access to all homes that use Supra Key access. Please verify with the seller’s agent all gate codes or combinations for locks needed for the property.
- Confirm all utilities are turned on at least 24 hours before inspection of the property. (Without this, we cannot perform all aspects of the inspection.)
- Any gas-fired appliances should be lit and operational (ex: water heater & furnace)
- The security system should be turned off for the duration of the inspection.
Typically, the buyer chooses to attend the home inspection. This gives them the opportunity to view the home and help to understand any notable defects that the inspector may uncover.
You have done a great job so far of keeping the home ready for showings, this is still important throughout the inspection process. Please consider the following items prior to the home inspection:
- Tidy up, keep visible personal effects to a minimum.
- Maintain your lawn.
- Replace any light bulbs that may be missing or bad.
- Make sure all pathways to electrical and gas appliances are clear and easily accessible (including attic and crawl space access).
- Be sure to provide any codes, combinations, or keys for locks on the property.
- Notify guard staff if applicable.
- Ensure house alarm is not set upon exiting.
- Remember your pets! Please remove from premise or humanely confine.
- If the property is vacant, ensure that all utilities are turned on 24 hours prior to inspection and gas-fired appliances are lit and operational.
