2 page 2 (317) PURPOSE & SCOPE OF REPORT THE PURPOSE OF THE REPORT: The purpose of the Inspection Report is to provide an objective evaluation of the condition of the systems and components of the property as inspected at the time of the Home Inspection. THE SCOPE OF THE REPORT: The scope of the Home Inspection is to perform a non-intrusive, non-invasive, limited visual analysis of the condition of the readily accessible areas, installed systems and components of the property using controls of components that are normally operated by the owner of the property. Those systems or components that are significantly deficient or are near the end of their service lives will be identified and disclosed in this report. Significantly deficient systems or components either greatly affect the habitability of the property, do not perform their intended function, or may propose a danger or risk of personal injury to those who occupy the property. The Home Inspection is not intended to be an in depth or technically exhaustive analysis of the property or a code compliance inspection. Limitations and exclusions are outlined in the Inspection Agreement. ORGANIZATION OF THE REPORT: The Inspection Report is organized by sections as listed in the Table of Contents on the cover sheet. These sections divide the Inspection Report by major systems and major areas of the property. The information box at the top of each page includes the name of the section, page number, and general property information. Each section consists of three parts: Description of the Systems & Components, Evaluation of Systems & Components, and Comments. The first part, "Description of the Systems & Components", describes the systems and components of the property by the identification of material types, locations, and descriptive characteristics of the systems and components. The second part, "Evaluation of Systems and Components", indicates which systems and components were found to be or not by the professional opinion of the Inspector. If there is any concern over the condition of the system or component, a comment describing the concern is included in the last part, "Comments". Pictures supporting some comments appear on the right side. All comments are organized by the following categories: Major Concerns, Repair/Replacement Recommendations, Recommend Monitoring, Maintenance/Improvement Recommendations, and General Comments. Refer to section #3, "Terminology", for definitions of each category. The last section of the report is the Summary of Comments. All the comments noted throughout the report are compiled into list format. Summaries are included for each comment category: Major Concerns, Repair/Replacement Recommendations, Recommend Monitoring, Maintenance/Improvement Recommendations, and General Comments.

Items of major concern should be examined and analyzed by a qualified, licensed contractor. REPAIR / REPLACEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS The system or component is not performing its intended function. Items are identified within this category have an adverse impact on the function of the systems or components of the property or propose a potential risk of personal injury to those who occupy the property, but: Does not propose a great affect on the habitability of the property. Items in need of repair and/or replacement should be examined and analyzed by a qualified, licensed contractor. Without action, these items may have the potential to become major concerns over time. RECOMMEND MONITORING The system or component should be monitored for possible deficiencies and/or changes in condition. Items are identified within this category for any of, but not limited to, the following reasons: At the time of the inspection, it could not be fully determined if the sign of the deficiency is inactive (the result of a past occurrence which received corrective action) or is an active defect that is in need of repair or replacement. The system or component is near the end of its service life expectancy range and/or shows signs of wear and tear which may lead to repairs or replacement in the near future. The current state of the system or component displays some signs of distress. It could not be fully determined if repair or replacement is required now or in the near future. MAINTENANCE / IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS This category lists any system or component whose current condition requires maintenance. Maintenance is considered normal and routine. Also, included in this category are recommendations for improvement to the property intended to provide safer operation or function of the system or component. Note: not all possible improvements and maintenance will be identified or recommended. GENERAL COMMENTS This category includes general comments and sites limitations set forth in the inspection of the property. ACCEPTABLE At the time of the inspection, the system or component is performing its intended function under normal operating conditions. Consideration is given for normal wear and deterioration, and the aging of the item. NOT PRESENT The system or component does not exist in the property.

A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as needed. See #1F on the following page after the ''Interior'' comments. MAINTENANCE / IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS As a basic security precaution, I suggest to re-key all exterior door locks after moving into the home. Check and clean the dryer vent regularly. This is not only a safety issue, it can increase the energy efficiency of the appliance. Caulking around tubs, showers, sinks, and countertops should be maintained on a regular schedule. Periodically, check for deterioration and add caulk as needed. Recommend to have the fireplace chimney professionally cleaned and serviced before the fireplace is initially used. Thereafter, professionally clean and service before each heating season. Frequency maybe increased depending on household use. According to the National Fire Alarm Code NFPA 72, smoke alarms should be replaced on a routine basis as suggested by the manufacturer, but shall not remain in service longer than 10 years from the date of installation. Alarms should also be replaced when they fail to respond to operability tests or when the end-of-life signal is activated. Over time, the smoke sensors inside the device become less effective and may not detect smoke. Recommend to check for a replacement date and if necessary, or if there is no date listed, replace the smoke alarms in the home with brand new smoke alarms. Thereafter, replace batteries every six months. If the smoke alarms satisfy the concerns stated above, recommend to replace the batteries on the all smoke alarms and test each smoke alarm for function. GENERAL COMMENTS Recommend to develop an emergency escape plan that is specific to the house layout in case of fire. Practice on a routine basis. For your information, the evaluation of the built-in kitchen appliances simply includes observing and determining if the appliance activates when the controls are operated. The scope of the home inspection does not include the evaluation of the cooking, baking, cleaning, or venting functions of built-in kitchen appliances. Recommend to request that the owner gather and store all service manuals that pertain to the systems and appliances of the home in one location, such as a kitchen cabinet or drawer.
