Do you encourage the client to attend the inspection?
We always encourage buyers to attend the inspection. Buyers that attend have a better understanding of the property as viewed by the inspector and are better able to read and interpret the final report. Specific questions that a buyer may have can often be answered at the inspection.
Can you do the repairs or maintenance that may be recommended in your inspection report?
In accordance with the ASHI® Standards of Practice and NY State Code of Ethics, we do not participate in any construction related activities for our inspection clients. That would represent a conflict of interest.
How soon can you typically schedule an inspection and when would I get the report?
An inspection can usually be scheduled within one or two days. We provide a comprehensive written report that is normally available 2 days after the physical inspection of the property. Reports are e-mailed to expedite delivery.
Are you experienced in residential inspections?
Our inspectors have extensive experience in performing home inspections. Each of our inspectors is required to take at least 20 “Continuing Educational Credits” from approved institutions each year. Collectively, they have inspected over 10,000 properties and have more than 100 years of construction and inspection experience.
How much will the inspection cost?
The inspection fees vary in accordance with the size and type of property. Call our Office at 212 794 3205 for a specific quote for your property.
What will the inspection report include?
A full inspection covers the Site/Grounds, Exterior, Structural Components, Foundation, Roof, Ventilation, Plumbing, Electrical, Heating/AC, Garage, Kitchen, Bathrooms, and Interior components of the property.
What form of payment is accepted?
Major credits cards, personal check or cash are accepted forms of payment. We do request payment at or prior to the inspection.
