Total Home Inspection Checklist
Use a checklist like this to make sure that you are looking at all parts of the house.
Check off those items that are in good condition and make notes about those that are not.
(Note that this list describes an ideal house, but in our experience no house is perfect
not even brand new ones!!)
Please Note:
This checklist should not be relied upon as a home inspection report, nor should it be
considered a substitute for a home inspection. This list is representative, but NOT
exhaustive. If you require a home inspection, contact Total Home Inspection or another
qualified, educated, licensed, experienced ASHI certified home inspector in your area.
