Building Inspection Report
reference manual is provided along with the report
checklists and/or the report findings printout in order
to provide you with a maximum amount
of information in the shortest period of time.
You as a buyer, need all the information you can get to
make an informed decision regarding your purchase... and
you need it fast.
all real estate Inspectors use either checklist reports
or narrative reports, whether computer generated or
preprinted. One common reporting system is the
"checklist," or "matrix"
report. Real Estate Inspectors may purchase inexpensive
preprinted check-list reports from several service
companies. The shortest period of
time to deliver could be attained with a
checklist report but checklist reports are generally
lacking in information.
maximum amount of information could be
provided with "narrative reports" but most
narrative reports require the inspector to prepare them
in office and deliver at a later date. Narrative reports
are generally developed by the individual inspector and
are worded in a way that is comfortable to the
inspector, given the inspector's knowledge and
experience. This can be confusing to the average person
having little or no construction experience.
reference style report, by utilizing a combination of
checklist, narrative, and data base, allows the
inspector to provide the client with a complete report
developed at the inspection site, which contains
much needed information seldom available with other
on-site report systems.
real estate agent or attorney is provided with
"findings pages" only , since
"findings" are their main interest. The client
is provided with the reference manual which contains
information that could be extremely helpful in making
decisions regarding each finding. All principals
involved in the transaction are provided with a report
format which is much easier to use, and much more
comprehensive, than checklist or narrative reports by
whom it may concern,
Larry Olson inspected the home that I am buying. I was
very pleased with his thoroughness. He was so
knowledgeable, and patiently explained details to me. He
took his time, documented the things that needed to be
documented and seemed really concerned about protecting
me as the buyer and my investment. I will recommend his
services to others without hesitation.
