I do not like the way 5.3 is worded "The inspector should also make an inquiry and review of any other documents that are reasonably ascertainable from standard sources such as certificates of occupancy and building code violation notices." Can somebody tell me why it is phrased that way? I have always told the client that it is a visual inspection. I usually do not request any additional information, unless I see some red flags.

8.1 Limitations "These Standards of Practice apply only to homes with four or fewer dwelling units" What standards do we use for more than four units? I thought we used the the regular NACHI SOPs for this 4 or less units.

Misspellings in BOLD


2. HVAC: Heating, ventilltion and air conditioning.
4.5 Subjectivity
The client should understand that the inspection report is, to a large degree, the subjective opinions of the inspector based on his/her observations and research within the limits of access, time, and budget and without the aid of special equipment or meters and without dismantling, probing, testing, or troubleshooting and without detailed knowlege of the commercial property, its components or its systems. The inpection report is not much more than a subjective professional opinion.
5.5 questionairre
6.55 II (E) gasses
10
3. repairpersons

Whoever wrote these SOPs did a really good job. I wish our home inspection SOPs was this defined.

I am looking forward to buying your software someday. I overspent this fall. I need to make sure I have enough money to make it through the slower winter months. Your knowledge and attitude is impressive.
