A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas
of a residential property (as delineated below), performed for a fee, which is designed to
identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that
are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. The scope of work may be
modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.
The InterNACHI® Home Inspection Standards of Practice can be read in its entirety at www.nachi.org/sop. Homeowner and real estate agents should read the standards of practice.
