Inspection Process

Inspections usually take between 2-4 hours, but this depends on the type. At our arranged appointment date/time we meet to review our prior (emailed) signed agreement and discuss your concerns & expectations.

The client is encouraged (at their own risk) to participate with AS SEEN in the inspection; to help you better understand the different home systems & components for your homeownership.

After the inspection, AS SEEN will provide a summary briefing on what was seen/discovered & later to follow in AS SEEN’s electronic report. Your personal tailored report (with pictures) will describe the homes present/existing systems, point out any limitations or exceptions not covered & indicate recommendations on defects or attributes observed in the home during the inspection.
