It is agreed by all that this inspection is to be performed according to the following terms and conditions: This form, whether filled out by the client or clients representative is a binding legal contract set forth by the conditions below.


1. Beacon Home Inspection Services will provide the Client a limited-time inspection of readily accessible and visible conditions and report of the following readily accessible and visible pertinent, major elements existing in the structure on the date of inspection: operations of the central air conditioning/ central heating system, interior electric components, interior and exterior plumbing fixtures, foundation, accessible crawlspace, roof coverings, interior/ exterior wall surfaces, floors surfaces, ceiling surfaces, and general operations of built-in kitchen appliances. Beacon Home Inspection Services shall have no obligation to repair or replace any items found to be defective, whether or not verbally discussed or in Beacon Home Inspection Services written report. Appliances, HVAC, electrical and plumbing components can fail at anytime. Operational and visible conditions are from a visual and limited operational inspection only and are from the standpoint of the inspector/ inspectors experience and opinion. Estimated life expectancy is determined by the age of the components and adjusted by any deficiencies observed at the time of inspection in the opinion of the inspector/ inspectors. Components that are listed as "old, aged or dated" should be considered as operational at the time of inspection but service or replacement may soon be needed and the need for replacement or repairs should be expected. For appliances and components over ten years old, a further, more invasive inspection by an appropriate, licensed contractor is recommended as a visual/ operational inspection will not uncover all potential deficiencies.
Conditions that may exist relating to any legal and/or public records are outside the scope of this inspection and it is highly recommended that due diligence be followed by the buyer or buyers attorney with regards to zoning and permitting for any and all updates and improvements that may have been made to the property. Beacon Home Inspection Service's reports go well beyond what is required by our governing Internachi's Standards of Practice. For what's required and not required during the process of your home inspection set forth by Internachi in conjunction with Florida's Department a Business and Professional Regulation please see the following web page. https://nachi.org/sop

Beacon Home Inspection Services cannot determine during the inspection if the roof leaks or is watertight unless there is accessible visible evidence of a leak at the time of inspection; the inspection is on visible material conditions only. Estimated life expectancy given on roofs is determined by the age of the roof and any visible deficiencies observed at the time of inspection and life expectancy is an estimate only on the amount of time left before the roof will need to be fully replaced. Opinions on life expectancy does not guarantee against roof leaks or that repairs and maintenance during stated life expectancy will not be needed. Life expectancy does not take into consideration damage, past or future, that has occurred or may occur from storm damage from wind, hail, flying debris or other acts of God. Furthermore, this inspection does not cover areas which cannot be visibly observed through a non destructive/invasive inspection such as conditions that may exist inside of walls or inaccessible areas of the attic which include but are not limited to... leaks, type of plumbing (polybutylene/ galvanized supply lines or cast iron drain lines) wood rot, termite activity or damage as well as structural damage from conditions which cannot be visually observed at the time of inspection. This inspection does not include code compliance, soil or groundwater contamination, geological, design, adequacy evaluation. Ancillary wiring such as landscape lighting (high or low voltage), cable or satellite TV, intercom/sound systems, remotely controlled or specialized control panels are beyond the scope of a general home inspection. Removal of panels, covers and cabinets on components such as but not limited to water heaters, HVAC equipment, appliances, pool equipment and whole house generators are beyond the scope of a visual home inspection. Solar panels or other secondary heating sources as well as whole house generators, pool heaters or heat recovery systems require specialized equipment and an extended period of time for proper evaluation which is not within the scope of a home inspection though we will make every effort to identify visual deficiencies. Beacon Home Inspection Services reserves a 5% margin or tolerance. At times, conditions may exist and may not have any visible signs to indicate its existence. Conditions may exists that are not readily visible due to inaccessibility or concealed by previous repairs or remediation of mold/asbestos/ lead paint performed by the seller such as but not limited to active or previous leaks, polybutylene/ galvanized plumbing supply lines, termite activity/ treatments, previous mold remediation items must be disclosed by the seller of the property in writing and should be provided to the inspector in the form of the sellers disclosure at least 24 hours in advance. Beacon Home Inspection Services recommends that the Client seek the advice of his legal counsel and/or real estate agent to identify items subject to the industry standard seller's disclosure in addition to those set forth in Beacon Home Inspection Services home inspection agreement. Beacon Home Inspection Services also highly recommends checking for permits on all additional construction performed on or replacement of components at the property after the original construction as well as any assessments that may be due from city, county or home owners association prior to closing.
Beacon Home Inspection Service's inspections are performed with consideration given to the age of the structure, items marked good must in all cases be considered good for the age of the item. Also, items in less than good condition will be marked as such, even though the condition may be normal for the age at the inspectors discretion. Opinions vary from person to person and the report is the opinion of the inspector and must be considered as such.

Indoor Air Quality sampling tests are preformed to determine the levels of mold spores in an indoor environment, this preliminary test can also reveal the presence of other irritants such as rusts, pollen, cellulose fibers and fiberglass particles. This test does not detect the presence of lead, radon, asbestos or Chinese Drywall. This test is mainly used to indicate whether or not the home has an unknown mold issue or may have had previous mold issues which were not properly remediated. Please call for pricing before choosing this option.

All home inspections include a visual inspection for Chinese Drywall. Choose this option if you have reason to believe that Chinese Drywall may be present in the home and if you would like sampling with an independent laboratory analysis to be preformed.

Where possible Beacon Home Inspection Services will remove the sample(s) from the least intrusive place possible. Please call for pricing prior to choosing this option.

Recommended for all homes with wells or older homes that may contain aged plumbing or lead pipes.
