The client or their agent schedules the inspection with the seller and ensures that access to the property is available for the inspector. The client and real estate agent are encouraged to attend the inspection. If attendance is not possible, the inspection fee must be paid before the report or information pertaining to the inspection is released unless prior arrangements were made. Credit card payments can be made on this website, see the Cost for Inspection page.
On vacant properties the client must arrange for utilities, water / gas / electrical, to be turned on in order for a proper inspection to be done on items requiring it. Ask your agent to arrange this.
Client agrees to read and sign the Inspectors Agreement before the Inspection and fax all pages as soon as possible for scheduling.
Payment is due at or before the Inspection, and the report will be sent within 12 to 24 hours.
