Top Important Questions To Ask A Home Inspector
Are you licensed and insured?
Home inspectors are required by law to be licensed and insured in order to perform inspection services in Florida. Not only does the licensing require education and testing to complete but the State also runs thorough criminal background checks on all home inspector applicants. In addition to licensing, ask where they received their education, what inspection organizations they are affiliated with, and additional education and professional backgrounds. There is no substitution for state Licenses.
How long will you be on site for?
A quality home inspection should be a thorough process. It’s in your best interest that an inspection takes over an hour to complete. Home inspections should be about 2-3 hours. In addition, reports should not be rendered on-site. A quality inspector will take their time to review pictures, notes, and observations made during the inspection and compile a multiple page document. A report rendered on-site is not beneficial to the client and may not be meeting Florida requirements.
Where can I see your reviews/testimonials?
Make sure to check out an inspector’s reviews on sites like Google. Yelp, etc. Several reviews with an above-average score can be a good indication of their reputation.
What type of report do you provide?
You’re making big decisions based on a home inspection report. The report should be thorough, easy to understand and help navigate you through this big decision.
You’ll want to know:
- Does the report contain a write-up on important components of the home? Will I get a digital copy?
- Does it include color photographs?
- Do you use a combination of a checklist and narrative format so I can understand all the major components of my home?
- Will you take the time to explain anything that I don’t understand?
