Checklists

Obtain a free checklist from websites such as WareSeeker (see Resources), to make sure you've covered all the bases before bringing in the formal inspector.

Building

Building inspections include close inspection of the roof, foundation, structural properties and HVAC and plumbing systems.

Landscape

In addition to testing the soil for toxic waste, an exterior inspection covers the landscape, tree growth and surrounding environmental issues that will affect the property.
