Home Standards Updated Home Inspection Procedures

As we adapt and respond to calls by local and national governing bodies to curtail the spread of COVID -19 we are now adopting the following procedures for home and commercial inspections:

  • Inspectors will take their temperature each morning and if any symptoms are present such as a high temperature or coughing, the inspector will not report to the inspection.
  • All inspectors will wear gloves, masks and protective glasses during inspections.
  • We will ask that sellers not be present during the inspection. If this is not feasible, we ask they remain in one room for the majority of the inspection period.
  • Inspection reports will be written offsite to limit the inspector’s time in the house.
  • IN PERSON WALK-THROUGHS WILL NOT BE PART OF THE HOME INSPECTION DURING THIS PROCESS. Walk-throughs with buyers and their agents will be conducted over the phone or by utilizing a conferencing app such as Zoom. If the client insists on being present at the house for the walkthrough the inspector will conduct the walkthrough over the phone in an offsite location.

The health of our inspectors, our clients, agents and sellers is the utmost concern for us.

Hope you all stay well as we continue to serve our community.
