THIS AGREEMENT made this 3/15/2021 by and between FUTURE HOME INSPECTION SERVICES (hereinafter “INSPECTOR”) AND THE UNDERSIGNED (“CLIENT”), collectively referred to herein as “the parties.”The Parties understand and voluntarily agree as follows:
We will perform a visual inspection of the home/building and provide you with a written report identifying the defects that we (1) observed and (2) deemed material.The report is only supplementary to the seller’s disclosure.CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS This inspection report will give you a partial picture of the condition of the building being inspected. It is recommended that you also obtain a complete disclosure from the seller as to their knowledge of any defects to the property. Rely on that disclosure together with this inspection report and any other available reports (termite, VA, appraisal, etc.) for the overall condition of the building. Air Conditioning / Heating inspection is a minimal inspection verifying that conditioned air is produced at the time of the inspection. We do not check for refrigerant leaks. A specialist should be retained to clean and service used equipment.The report is a limited, visual inspection of apparent conditions in readily accessible areas of the building (the inspector will not move appliances, furniture, rugs, personal effects, boxes, etc.). It is an inspection designed to determine the working condition status of those items listed in the inspection report. The scope and extent of this inspection and report are limited to the specific items in the report (subject to Exclusions) to the extent that they are readily visible, accessible and apparent. The inspector is not required to walk on the roof, however if the roof is not wet and readily accessible the inspector will attempt to walk the roof. Roofs are inspected for visual condition, and signs of leaks. We do not guaranty roofs to be free of leaks. Pools are inspected for general condition. Pool leaks are not part of the inspection unless they are apparent from leaking pipes which can be seen visually.This is not an inspection to detect code compliance, safety, design or cosmetic deficiencies. The inspection comments on the working condition of only those items listed in the report.It does not intend to imply working condition of anything not expressly stated. Notations and comments on working condition apply to the item on the day of inspection only, and in no way warrants or guarantees any length of remaining service. The report is not a guarantee or a warranty of the condition of any items mentioned or not mentioned in this report. The report is solely a listing of items that are and are not in working condition, in the opinion of the inspector, at the time of inspection. It is quite possible for an appliance to be leak free and operational on the day of inspection, and to either leak and/or not operate immediately thereafter.Systems, items, and conditions which are NOT within the scope of the inspection include, but are not limited to: the possible presence of or danger from any potentially harmful or hazardous substance or environmental hazards such as radon gas, urea formaldehyde, lead based paint, asbestos, toxic or flammable materials, carbon monoxide, molds, fungi, or other environmental hazards; the presence of, or damage caused by, Chinese drywall, termites or any other wood damaging insects or organisms; portable household appliances; humidifiers; underground storage tanks; security and fire protection systems; water wells and septic systems; heating systems accessories; solar heating systems; sprinkling systems and landscape watering systems; water softener; central vacuum systems; telephone, intercom or cable TV systems and antennae; lightning arrestors; test for determining the suitability or quality of drinking water or air.Client understands that these systems, items and conditions are excepted from this inspection.
