The home inspection expert witness’s report may cover the condition of the heating system, air conditioning system, plumbing, electrical systems, roof, attic,walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, the foundation, basement, and structural components.
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) recommends:
Do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection or in the selection of your home inspector. The sense of security and knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspection is not necessarily a bargain. Use the inspector’s qualifications, including experience, training, compliance with your state’s regulations, if any, and professional affiliations as a guide.
