PROPERTY INSPECTION REPORT
(Name of Client)
(Address or Other Identification of Inspected Property)
(Name and License Number of Inspector)
(Name, License Number and Signature of Sponsoring Inspector, if required)
This property inspection report may include an inspection agreement (contract), addenda, and other
information related to property conditions. If any item or comment is unclear, you should ask the inspector
to clarify the findings. It is important that you carefully read ALL of this information.
This inspection is subject to the rules (“Rules”) of the Texas Real Estate Commission (“TREC”), which can
be found at www.trec.state.tx.us.
The TREC Standards of Practice (Sections 535.227-535.233 of the Rules) are the minimum standards for
inspections by TREC-licensed inspectors. An inspection addresses only those components and conditions
that are present, visible, and accessible at the time of the inspection. While there may be other parts,
components or systems present, only those items specifically noted as being inspected were inspected. The
inspector is not required to move furnishings or stored items. The inspection report may address issues that
are code-based or may refer to a particular code; however, this is NOT a code compliance inspection and
does NOT verify compliance with manufacturer’s installation instructions. The inspection does NOT imply
insurability or warrantability of the structure or its components. Although some safety issues may be
addressed in this report, this inspection is NOT a safety/code inspection, and the inspector is NOT required
to identify all potential hazards.
In this report, the inspector will note which systems and components were Inspected (I), Not Inspected (NI),
Not Present (NP), and/or Deficient (D). General deficiencies include inoperability, material distress, water
penetration, damage, deterioration, missing parts, and unsuitable installation. Comments may be provided
by the inspector whether or not an item is deemed deficient. The inspector is not required to prioritize or
emphasize the importance of one deficiency over another.
Some items reported as Deficient may be considered life-safety upgrades to the property. For more
information, refer to Texas Real Estate Consumer Notice Concerning Recognized Hazards, form OP-I.
This property inspection is not an exhaustive inspection of the structure, systems, or components. The
inspection may not reveal all deficiencies. A real estate inspection helps to reduce some of the risk involved
in purchasing a home, but it cannot eliminate these risks, nor can the inspection anticipate future events or
changes in performance due to changes in use or occupancy. It is recommended that you obtain as much
information as is available about this property, including any seller’s disclosures, previous inspection
reports, engineering reports, building/remodeling permits, and reports performed for or by relocation
companies, municipal inspection departments, lenders, insurers, and appraisers. You should also attempt to
determine whether repairs, renovation, remodeling, additions, or other such activities have taken place at
this property. It is not the inspector’s responsibility to confirm that information obtained from these sources
is complete or accurate or that this inspection is consistent with the opinions expressed in previous or future
ITEMS IDENTIFIED IN THE REPORT DO NOT OBLIGATE ANY PARTY TO MAKE REPAIRS OR
TAKE OTHER ACTIONS, NOR IS THE PURCHASER REQUIRED TO REQUEST THAT THE
