Sure it is, in the bullet point 6:
improperly installed appliances;

To which you then go to TREC SOP
(c) Water heaters. The inspector shall:
(1) report the energy source;
(2) report the capacity of the unit(s);
(3) report as Deficient:
(A) inoperative unit(s);
(B) leaking or corroded fittings or tank(s);
(C) broken or missing parts or controls;
(D) the lack of a cold water shut-off valve;
(E) if applicable, the lack of a pan and drain system and the improper termination of the pan drain line;
(F) an unsafe location;
(G) burners, burner ignition devices or heating elements, switches, or thermostats that are not a minimum of 18 inches above the lowest garage floor elevation, unless the unit is listed for garage floor installation;
