Can a house fail a home inspection?

No. A Beasley Home Inspection inspection is an examination of the current condition of your home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verifies compliance to local codes and standards. Our inspectors will not pass or fail a house. Our inspectors describe the physical condition of a property and indicate what may need repair or replacement.

How long will the inspection take?

Most Beasley Home Inspection inspections take about two to three hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age, and condition of the home.

Do I have to be there?

While it is not necessary for you to be present, we highly encourage you to join the inspector for at least a portion of the time. This allows you to observe the inspector, ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain them. After you have seen the property with the inspector, you will find the written report easier to understand.

What if the report reveals problems?

No house is perfect. When the inspector identifies problems, it does not indicate you should not buy the house. His findings serve to educate you in advance of the purchase about the condition of the property. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major problems are discovered during an inspection. If your budget is tight, or if you do not want to be involved in future repair work, this information will be extremely valuable.
