Home Inspection: 

   A home inspection is defined as the process by which a home inspector observes and provides a written report of the systems and components of a residential building including but not limited to:

  • Heating System

  • Cooling System

  • Plumbing System

  • Electrical System

  • Structural Components - foundation, roof masonry structure, exterior and interior components or any other related residential building component recommended by the Home Inspection Council and implemented by the Department of State through the regulatory process

   A home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house for any visible deficiencies. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate building codes for that state or municipality. 

New York State Home Inspector:



   A home inspector is someone who preforms a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspectors  conduct an inspection utilizing the knowledge, training and certifications per New York Sate to perform said duties. The inspector then prepares and delivers to the client a written report of their findings. The client can then use the information gained from the inspection report to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.

 Home inspectors shall exhibit honesty and integrity in    furtherance of the honor of the home inspection profession.  A home inspection has a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all home buyers.  In performing home inspection services, home inspectors shall adhere to the highest principles of ethical conduct.

   Home inspectors are licensed by the NYS Department of State. Home Inspectors may only report on readily accessible and observed conditions as outlined in this pre-inspection agreement, Article 12 B of the Real Property Law and the regulations promulgated thereunder including, but not limited to, the Code of Ethics and Regulations and the Standards of Practice as provided in Title 19 NYCRR Subparts 197-4 and 197-5 et seq.
