  • 1. Inspection Report Prepared For: Mr. Sam Sample Mrs. Samantha Sample Property Address: 3001 S Sample St. Washington DC 12345 Sentry Home Inspections, LLC Tim Bills 2020 12th St., NW T03 Washington, DC 20009
  • 2. Date: 9/7/2010 Time: 12:30 PM Report ID: SAMPLE Property: 3001 S Sample St. Washington DC 12345 Customer: Mr. Sam Sample Mrs. Samantha Sample Real Estate Professional: Sentry Home Inspections, LLC is pleased to provide you with this home inspection report. This report is intended to provide you with an evaluation of the general condition of the home on the date of the inspection. Please read the entire report. The areas of the home that were inspected include: Structure, Exterior, Plumbing, Electric, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Interior and Kitchen. For condominiums and cooperatives, common areas are NOT inspected and are not part of a standard report. The structure and exterior are considered common areas in condominiums and cooperatives. The focus of the inspection was on major problems or concerns. A major problem or concern is a component that is significantly deficient and would potentially cost $500.00 to repair or replace, or posses a threat to life or health. These items, if any, are contained in this report and can be easily identified by locating an "X" in the "MA" (Major) column in each section of this report. Look for the description of the problem or concern in the corresponding explanation below the columns. Major problems or concerns can also be accessed by looking directly at the "MAJOR" Summary in this report. During the course of identifying major problems or concerns, it is nearly inevitable that minor problems or concerns will be located. A minor problem or concern is a component that is deficient and would more than likely cost less than $500.00 to repair or replace. Minor problems or concerns can be easily identified by locating an "X" in the "m" (minor) column in each section of this report. Look for the description of the problem or concern in the corresponding explanation below the columns. Minor problems or concerns can also be accessed by looking directly at the "MINOR SUMMARY" in this report. It is important to note that this inspection is not an all inclusive inspection and not every minor defect is noted in this report. It is my sincere hope that you find this report and my services to be beneficial. Thank you for choosing Sentry Home Inspections, LLC for your home inspection needs. Regards, Tim Bills Age Of Home: 60 years Occupied: No Weather: Clear Temperature: 91 Precipitation in last 3 days: No Client Is Present: Yes Client Attention: Complete Others present: Inspector trainee Radon Test: No
