||A typical home inspection is
a visual check of all the accessible components of
a house. The check is preferably done by a professional whose training
and experience allows a competent, timely, and complete assessment of
the current condition of the structure and systems.
Home inspections are
not meant to point out every small irregularity or flaw - a non-professional
can easily detect these obvious defects.
The home inspection should
not be confused with a real estate appraisal, which evaluates the worth
of the property based on comparable sales in the area, and establishes a
specific value that is typically used by lenders for establishing loans.
A home inspection
does not include "insurance coverage"
does it provide any type of "warranty".
Warranties are generally supplied by manufactures, and various types of
insurance can be purchased to protect from unforeseen problems.
