Home Inspection Report


With your best interests in mind, my reports are produced on location offering full transparency. The advantage of on-site reporting is that you are fully aware of the process and problems that may arise immediately after the inspection.

I walk my clients through each inspection from the interior to the exterior assessing everything from roofing and plumbing to electrical and structural components of the property. As I record each item, I will keep you abreast of what I observe. If a question should arise as they often do, I am there to address your concerns straight away.

Inspections are typically a minimum of two and a half hours, but vary in terms of length and complexity. Even if you are unable to make it to the inspection my reports are designed to be easy-to-understand and detailed so that you gather a complete picture of your investment. I am also happy to review the report with you at any time over the phone or in person.
