Items that are most commonly noted on Inspection Reports

Sellers can speed their home inspection by following these suggestions. The inspection will go smoother, with fewer concerns to delay closing.

 

  • Confirm that water, electric and gas service are on, with gas pilot lights burning.
  • Ensure pets won't hinder the inspection. Ideally, they should be removed from premises or secured outside. Tell your agent about any pets at home.
  • Replace all burned out bulbs to avoid a "Light is inoperable" report that may suggest an electrical problem.
  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace dead batteries.  If you don’t have carbon monoxide detectors currently in the home-purchase before the inspection and install.
  • Clean or replace dirty HVAC air filters. They should fit securely.

  • Remove items blocking access to HVAC equipment, electric service panels, water heaters, attics and crawl spaces.
  • Toilets in the house are loose which can cause moisture seepage. Replace the seals and secure the toilets.
