Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, so it's important to make sure the home in structurally sound and free of major defects. A licensed professional home inspection will examine the home and document any items that need repair, replacement or pose a risk to your health or safety. Additionally, most mortgage companies require a home inspection on a property before approving the home loan. The home inspector is an impartial party regardless of who requested the inspection. We are required by law to report on the condition of the areas inspected as they appeared at the time of inspection.
In the State of Texas, a home inspector must have an active license in accordance to the Standards of Practice outlined by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). All A&T Home Inspections inspectors are licensed and in good standing with TREC. We encourage our customers to do their due diligence a verify the home inspectors credentials on the TREC website.
The Inspector will report on the condition of the home’s heating/cooling systems; interior plumbing and electrical systems; roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, and structural components. You may also request optional services such as termite and pool inspections.
No. Home inspections aren't pass or fail. Instead think of it as an examination of the home's overall condition. Even if a major defect is discovered during your home inspection, what to do next is totally up to you. Everything on a house can be repaired. It's best to consult your real estate agent for the best course of action. Please Note: As an impartial party, your home inspector cannot advise you whether to proceed or withdraw from the transaction based on findings in the report.
